Hi, are there any people who have been spent time as a Laboratory Technician? What does the career path look like? I ask because right now I am working in a Reliability Engineering Lab with mechanical and electrical engineers. I have an undergrad degree in Physics and took a year of Mechanical Engineering courses, and I am sort of struggling with career choices. I interviewed with a small company the other day for a position as a Lab Technician and I am sort of nervous to accept a job...only because I worry about earning potential and future career paths. I cant afford to not work and continue my education right now.
