Going to be graduating with a BS in biology in May. Anyone on here work at a lab or anything where I can get experience? Thanks.
When I was doing the bio/chem thing I landed a lab position through a recruiter prepping ground water samples from landfills for testing at Waste Mgt....that job showed me that lab work was NOT for me. I was actually quite good at it but when I found out most of the chemists working there had master's degrees and only made around $60K/year I saw the writing on the wall.Going to be graduating with a BS in biology in May.

There is a lot of money in Pharma, period. I'm in Regulatory and we have tons of people, ex-scientists, etc. making good money. I think a lot of them have lab experience and it helped them get to where they are.If you want to get paid you need get into medical/pharm sales but you'll also have to check your morals at the door...which is another reason I leaned unix and got a job in telecom..Sure it pays a bit less but at least I can live with myself.
