As a forensic anthropologist, do you feel satisfactory by solving a case? When presenting information on a case, do forensic anthropologists get nervous?

As a junior in high school a forensic anthropologist is my ideal career choice. Before making a final decision on my future career choice I would like to know more information about it than what the internet gives me. To get a better understating of this job and to get information from people who are involved in that job. #criminology #forensic-analysis

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

I understand that as a Forensic Biologist you are looking at DNA and the small micro details to solve a crime, however, how often does this evidence actually lead to a great discovery that solves the case?

I want to be a Forensic Biologist. I know what the job implies, but I really want to know how often the evidence actually leads to solving the crime. #professor #forensicscientist #criminologist #dnaanalysist #forensic #forensic-chemistry #forensic-analysis #biology #law-enforcement #criminal-justice

How can someone get C++certified even though he or she is not a computer science major? Will having this advantage help with interview?

I took a c++ programming class and saw the benefits of learning to write codes for certain applications. I have a better understanding of how many technology work and the programs responsible for running them. I wish to apply what I have learned to the forensic field, but I do not wish to go into cyber. #computer #technology #forensic #forensic-analysis

What is the work schedule for a Forensic Scientist like? What's the best part of the job? What's the worst part? What commonly occurs? Do all forensic scientists appear in court at least once in their careers, or are there some that don't ever?

I'm a current college freshman majoring in Biology. I am highly interested in going into the Forensic Science profession; no specific choice of emphasis (DNA analysis, fingerprinting, etc.) I was considering changing my major to forensic science to get a more in depth education. However, before I do that I would like more insight on forensic science. I'm very hardworking, organized, attentive, and determined (I don't like leaving work unfinished); I feel like these are good qualities for the career. Also, the idea of finding answers and giving victims and their families closure or declaring a person of interest innocent is appealing to me. #forensics #forensic-analysis #forensic-science #forensic-scientists
