What is it like working as an CSI ? What's something nice about working there?

This is something I want to study but I'm not sure if I'm able to manage to see all the crime, but I think I can handle it at the same time. What is some experience you had seeing all these crimes? Did you get used to it? What was the worst crime you've seen?

How much experience do you have to have to be a forensic scientist?

I need to know so I'll be prepared for this job when I'm older. I love the idea of solving the crimes, gathering DNA, and finding criminals whom committed the crime. #crime-scene-investigator #forensics

Are there only certain forensic scientists that are asked to go crime scenes to investigate and gather data?

I am physically disabled and I enjoy and prefer working in lab settings. I wouldn't be comfortable with going to crime scenes and having to be extra careful with my steps or worrying about how I will help gather evidence if I have to squat or be in positions that are difficult for me to get in. If a large part of this career is being present at the crime scene for evidence collection, I may reconsider my decision. #science #biology #chemistry #criminology #laboratory #detective #crime-scene-investigator #forensic-science

Which forensic science related job would be best for me based on my interests?

With a forensic science major, I intend to work with trace evidence, but I can't determine which job would allow me to do so. I know of Forensic Anthropologists, Blood Splatter Technicians, Entomologists, etc. but I don't know which of these (and the rest) I would need to work as to be able to collect and work with actual evidence from crime scenes. I suppose my real question is, what is a list of possible jobs (in forensic science) that would allow me to work with evidence? I've searched for an answer, but I keep getting different responses, so I'm hoping someone qualified and knowledgeable can help me figure out what it is that I really want to do. If more information is needed, I will say that I wouldn't mind working with fingerprints, blood, fibers, fluids, and any other evidence. I know I can rule out the DNA matching and toxicology since that is more chemistry related (I prefer biology), but as for information on the others, any help is appreciated. #career #science #biology #career-paths #forensic #stem #women-in-stem #crime-scene-investigator

With a forensic science degree with a concentration in biology, what is to be expected job-wise?

I intend to major in forensic science (biology, not chemistry), but even after quite a lot of research, I'm finding it quite difficult figuring out what exactly one does if they have biology as the concentration (for the major). I prefer biology over chemistry, so I'm just wondering if a major in forensic biology would allow me to collect and possibly analyze trace evidence such as fingerprints, blood, fibers, etc. I've also found that crime scene technicians/investigators are usually just police officers who've been working for many years and are given the job of collecting evidence, so does this mean I would first have to become an officer before I can work at crime scenes? I know this is a lot, but I'm really interested in the collecting aspect (more so trace evidence than DNA) , so would a major in forensic biology allow me to work in both a lab and at crime scenes? I also have one more question. A lot of sources claim that forensic chemists work primarily in labs, so I was wondering if this is true for forensic biologists as well. #biology #chemistry #forensics #laboratory #forensic-analysis #crime-scene-investigator #analyst #evidence

Do I have to study chemistry or biology in college to become a Forensic Scientist?

I have been debating over whether it will be easier to find work in this field if I major in a strictly science subject, or if I can major in criminal justice/criminology and still achieve the same goal. #science #biology #chemistry #forensic #college-majors #japan #criminology #criminal-investigations #crime-scene-investigator

Do you have to be a police officer to be a Crime Scene Investigator and what is the job description?

I am really considering to be a crime scene investigator, but I really would not like to be a police officer. I've research many descriptions of the job, but none have given me a straight forward answer. Can someone please help me understand? #criminal-justice #law-enforcement #forensic #police-officer #crime-scene-investigator
