Thomas’s Answer

In general, internships are a good idea for any field as you start off on your career journey. They give you the ability to get experience on a targeted topic over a defined set of time, and more importantly, build the network of people you know in the field you're trying to break into. Relationships are the most important thing you can build in your career or personal life, and the more you build them, the more opportunity and satisfaction overall you'll have. This is why internships are important. I still rely on that network of people years past my short time of working with them, and they've been able to help more times than I can count.

Elizabeth’s Answer

This can vary from company to company. Most biotech companies require a college degree, typically a B.S. or B.A. in Biology for an entry-level technician's position. For manufacturing positions, in a few cases, a high school diploma is sufficient. I'm currently a graduate student doing biological research, and several of my coworkers started out working in biotech jobs right after college. These jobs helped them gain the experience needed to get into grad school.
