Graduate student "Mastering out", trying to begin next steps
posted by jroger2908 to Work & Money (4 answers total)
I'm a second year graduate student in molecular biology but I just submitted my MS thesis and will be done in May. Not a good environment for me and the employment opportunities look bleak so I have decided that now is the best time to move on. I've been looking into job opportunities pretty extensively and have a decent network but I was wondering what other people did in similar situations (or people they know) and I'm always open to advice. The most obvious career route is R&D but I'm also looking into more clinical career paths and in the meantime I've been doing a little work for my roommates' start-up company and may expand into a bigger role but there are many obstacles there.
Any advice would be awesome! Thanks!
