What is the employment outlook for those with a biology degree?

I am a high school senior who is planning on majoring in biology (most likely general biology). Although I plan on pursuing medical school in the future, I would like to know how the employment perspective is for someone who holds a bachelors of science for biology. #biology #employment #science #college #career #career-counseling

Hi Andrea G.,

There are some possibilities for those hold Bachelor degree for Biology, of course, depends on the country and location. For example, becoming a teacher, as a research assistant in University or pharmaceutical company, writer working on high school textbook, biology illustrator if you are good at art as well. I was major in General Biology when I was in the college, I have classmate works in the zoo; liaison; salesperson; teacher; research assistant; medical doctor; and scientist! career-counseling

Eldon’s Answer

Biology may not be the best major if you are looking for something that will have direct application to a lot of jobs. It is a great major for preparing for medical school, but by itself, it can be challenging to reframe your education in practical terms companies will understand. If you can think through what kind of job opportunities might interest you besides medical school, and then work backward to see what education is required, that may help you find a major that has a more direct application to careers you find interesting. Alternatively, you can pick up certain skills on the side while completing a degree in Biology that will help you land a job (like a project management certification or learning to program).
