Joel recommends the following next steps:
There are a lot of careers in biology. I personally studied biochemistry and molecular biology as an undergraduate.
After graduating, most people usually go either into Academia (school), or industry (biotechnology/pharmaceutical companies). Or graduate school.
I personally chose to work in industry after I graduated from my Bacehlors, and I began in manufacturing where I helped produce oncology drugs. I now help oversee clinical trials at a pharmaceutical company. There are many options, from working in research, operations, supply chain, quality, and more!
Additionally, I know some people who studied biology with me in college who are now in healthcare professions, from nursing, to doctors, to dentists and pharmacists. There are a lot of options!
I hope I was able to help! Good luck!
