Biotechnology uses living things to create useful products. It’s a rapidly growing field with more jobs coming out of that growth.

The image of a scientist in a white lab coat has some truth to it: lots of opportunities in biotechnology are in research and development, and plenty of them exist for new grads. These positions are available in government agencies, universities, and hospitals. Some positions require advanced degrees or more experience. If you want to pursue a career in research, study biology, biochemistry, or a related field, and pursue an internship or research project before graduating.

Outside of the actual research, you can also find opportunities in the following areas:

  • Quality Assurance
  • Clinical Trials
  • Operations
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Scientific Advocacy
