How do I prepare myself for a career in forensic sciences?
Some tips to start your career in forensic sciences:
- it is actually a career that requires a lot of effort (not trying to discourage you, but encourage you to give your best from the beginning, it will make your path easier)
- there is people that focus this career more in the "scientist, analytics" field, while other ones are more interested in its behavioural, therapy-related part. Feel free to find your own dose of each in order to focus on what inspires your the most in this career.
- you will eventually manage sensitive information, which can be hard... techniques like meditation, mindfulness or therapy can help you in the moments you might feel overwhelmed
Forensic sciences is a wonderful career path with many opportunities. Although it might not be for everyone, if you feel like you belong to this field I encourage you to go for it!
