Jeremy’s Answer

Hi Maria,

I know life could be confusing as I was up for a doctoral degree but got declined by all my dream schools 4 years ago. Re-positioning myself to a job hunting and I have already worked for current employer for almost 4 years with passion.
I believe you are definitely a young professional with great passion. Why not seize all the opportunity you have? Intern with maths/biology related company. Research to see the eligibility of becoming a doctor? Apply for lab interns as well. Try it first and you can tell what you like :)

Jeremy recommends the following next steps:

Search for intern openings in interested areas for the qualification
Check for doctor fellow pre-requirement
work towards those requirement and qualification
find what you like through the journey
set you career goal :)

Simeon’s Answer

There are a few things I could think of for you. Lab tech is the obvious choice, maybe sonography since it's a fast growing field currently. You sound like you would really enjoy engineering. If you haven't really settled on a specific job yet and love math, engineering is an excellent path because there are lots of subdisciplines within engineering from oil to planes to medical equipment to nautical engineering, etc. Plus, the career opportunities can be really exciting.
Thank you comment icon I was thinking in biotechnology and i dont know a lot of areas on engineering Maria Inês

Hi Marie,

Doing your research is the key. There are plenty of opportunities for people with a passion for mathematics, biology, and lab work. First I would suggest that you discuss your interest with a guidance counselor, if you are in high school, or a representative from your career development center, if you are in college. You can also go to your public library and search on careers in Biology the require strong math and analytical skills. Take more math courses. Mathematics helps you to develop the essential skills needed for detailed analysis, problem solving, and critical thinking. Seek out opportunities for working in this area through internships, entry level jobs, and volunteering.

Career research is very important. Be certain to discover and research companies that do the type of work that you are interested in. Another key component of your career search is self assessment. Become familiar with your likes and dislikes concerning career opportunities. Understand your strengths and areas for improvement. Compare that to what is required for the career you are seeking to determine how much of a match you may be for a particular opportunity, and areas that you will need to improve upon for the opportunity that you want.

Chad’s Answer

Depending on what grade you are in, I would definitely suggest an education path in STEM. You could start with general Biology and narrow your focus. A degree in Biology would allow you to pursue pre-med, or do some grad work to run a lab or do research. There are so many possibilities!
