Typically, students that graduate with a Biology degree will focus on a specialization, and this will help you to find your path forward. Just try to get some hands-on experience while in college (in the field or in the lab).
As a biologist, you can work as:
Health Care Officer
Quality Control Analyst
Occupational Health and Safety Officer
Health Products Marketer / Promoter
Hope this helps,
It can (in addition to many others), help teach you how to be:
1. An analytical thinker that is driven by data. Many jobs require data analysis and critical thinking. Biology is a great degree for that!
2. Hypothesis-driven. Employees like to see that you can solve problems, and as a biologist you learn you to craft hypotheses and test them to get to the right answer.
3. Both a large-scale and small-scale thinker. As a biology major you will more than likely learn about macro processes (e.g., ecology, population dynamics) and micro processes (e.g., genetics, molecular biology), which gives you the skills to see both a detailed and holistic view of a problem.
It's a great degree that is definitely worth it, even if you aren't interested in pursing a biology-related degree after college!
