Mitra’s Answer

It really depends on what you're looking for and what you can excel at.

In my previous work experience, working at IBM, I had a colleague studying chemistry in the university, however they working as a software engineer, developing enterprise level software, they thought themselves coding and took some courses online and in person and applied for development jobs.

I also have a colleague in PagerDuty that has studied chemistry, but they're working as an agile coach/project manager, managing projects.

Thank you comment icon Hi Mitra, Thank you for telling me about your colleagues' experiences and how they got into tech... I did not know that science careers could be so versatile before. Abigail

Archana’s Answer

Technology now affects all of the scientific disciplines, including biology and chemistry. There are a lot of interesting opportunities in technology, if you have a biology/chemistry or natural science background. High-performance computing has changed how we answer and look at important questions in science. Data science is another hot field that is open to people with a science background, especially if you have experience in running high-throughput assays/techniques.

Archana recommends the following next steps:

Learn a high-level language like python/R. there's multiples free websites/apps that help do that
