Career Advice Requested

  1. Jan 8, 2008 #1
    I'm a 3rd year university student, microbiology/biochem major. I also recently found after taking Organic One that I have a knack for organic chemistry. I know a couple things for sure: I love science and I love school. Problem is, I'm unsure if I want to be a teacher/professor and I definitely would hate industry type lab work. Although it would be fun to get a doctorate, in the end I'm doubtful I could ever put it to its true use: directing and overseeing independant research. Plus writing grants sounds really boring.

    I know I love working individually with people, explaining things and helping people solve problems. So my organic skills seem like my best bet for finding a job. Anybody have advice on job opportunities from what I've described above?
