How competitive is the job market for marine science?
I am going to be majoring in marine science starting fall of 2016 and I was wondering how competitive I would have to be to get job offers or internships. #marine-biology #oceanography #marine-mammals #ocean-conservation
The field itself is competitive due to the small, but growing numbers of people majoring and sticking with the degree. Many jobs are centered around government work and contracts which require boating and scuba certifications. But if you are determined enough, volunteer work can land you a job if you stick with it and make the connections. You might not start off in a job with your major, but you can end up with it.
