Hi Jordan, I agree with Maxwell's response, you can do pretty much anything. In college I worked in 3 labs, the first one making nano-filters to kill bacteria and clean water, the second did more computational biology, doing wet lab work and imaging human tissue cells, and the third one engineering bacteria to degrade harmful chemicals. My first company genetically engineered bacteria to produce chemicals. This process was very clean compared to conventional chemical routes, which was pretty neat. In my second company I worked in a lab growing human tissue cells to treat patient injuries, getting exposure in the medical industry such as working in cleanrooms and dealing with regulations. I no longer work in biotech, but my current company (energy sector) has a biotech division (most likely molecular biology / microbiology). They also do research with biofuels too.
It was good to have exposure to different things while I was in college before joining the workforce, but you'll have to juggle with your available time. Learning soft skills like public speech, critical thinking will give you an edge over others, not just memorizing a lot of names.
