Jobs that fit these categories

  1. Jun 23, 2011 #1
    My nephew needs a bit of help in finding 2 jobs to write about for his career plan, he knows what subjects he wants to do at a level but can't find any jobs that fit the subjects.

    The subjects he would like to do are,

    Technology and design
    Mathematics, he mightn't be able to do this one but would like a job with some maths based parts.

    What jobs would fit these subjects well?


    ps, he wanted me to say that he wants it to be well paid, lol

    Looks like he's covered the engineering disciplines as well as the sciences. This question is so broad that unless your nephew does just a little bit of his own work, we're not going to be able to help you.

    I asked him and he says that he would like something that involves a bit of hands on work, eg. experiments, making projects in technology etc.
    He would be inclined to like to know how things work etc.
    He had thought about medicine and I have no doubt he could get the grades for it, however he's not sure whether he character?/attitude for it?, hope you understand what I mean, I didn't speak english as my first language so find it hard to explain things like that.


    PS, I will talk to him later once he's in from school

    Perhaps biomedical engineering, researching and/or making prosthetics with electronic interfaces with the brain (yes, I know not in this aticle but a logical extension of it).http://huffduffer.com/Clampants/44572" [Broken]

    Thanks Dave,

    What sort of jobs combine chemistry, technology and maths.


    Sorry for asking stupid questions but the kid can't make his mind up.

    I had a chat with him about this, even got a friend who works in HR and all that jazz to try and get this sorted out.

    We eventually just came up with the idea of putting down 2 general jobs in the areas/fields he would like to work in, its only for a careers/subject choice interview for his 6th year application.

    He's decided to go for, Chemical Engineering and Medicine with a couple of related jobs to bulk out his careers interview.
