Whether you graduated last year or this year (or any year for that matter), for most people it is one of the best feelings in the world - to finally realise that all your hard work has paid off and you finally have your degree.
But that is not the end of the hard work unfortunately... particularly in the modern graduate job marketplace.
It can be hard finding a part time job, let alone a full time one, especially in today’s climate. But if you are graduating with a biology degree then you are spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding what specific career path to take. Below are just a few options for you to consider:
Laboratory technician - Within your biology degree you would have had experience working within labs, so why not put this experience to good use. As a laboratory technician, you will be hands-on, working in a variety of settings and situations.
Research - This can lead on from a laboratory technician or you could be part of a different industry in which you can provide vital research for the biological industry.
Biochemist - As a biochemist you can branch out into many different areas, whether it is in drugs, food or other living tissues. Moreover you can also be involved in extremely complex things such as molecular biology or the study of genes.
Environmental - If you like spending time outside and love being hands on then working in an environmental sphere would be perfect for you.
Masters - You may not think, or even consider, staying on but doing an MA can open up a whole new world to you. If you have a degree in Biology and a Masters in Zoology, for example, then your career path and options become even broader.
