In today’s world, you can see graduates and post graduates running around for a job with a reasonable pay scale. Getting a job related to your field of study with a good pay has become very difficult. With this unstable economy, even the salaries of people who are having a good job are declining. In this scenario, it has to be noted that people are not realizing the importance of Biotechnology jobs and are going behind white collar courses. Earlier, before the advancement of biotechnology, the salaries were also too low and the job specification was open to all science graduates. But with enough biotechnology graduates to fill in the seats and the opening up of specific jobs, companies are looking for skilled biotechnology graduates.
With the increasingly health conscious people, the pharmaceutical companies have an immediate need to hold on to the market and this requires experienced Msc. Biotechnology professionals who can fill into the team. This need has been realized by the companies lately and thus the salaries have increased. Bsc. Biotechnology graduates are also given good salaries with sponsored further education opportunity.
Mostly, students are not exposed to the career potential of doing a BSc or Msc. Biotechnology course. Even college pass outs look for any job without a specific biotechnology career outlook and thus the skilled people that come to biotech jobs are very less and this has increased the need for employees. There are much more degree and post graduation colleges offering biotechnology courses and most of them have a good placement program. With proper planning, one can attain a good career with a bright and secure future.
Even though pharmacy sector is highly looking out for employees, there are also other career options like IVF clinics, drug designing centers, labs, R&D centers, plant hybridization centers, Biopesticides, biodiesel and several other industries. The need for a biological approach to face the current ecological crisis has put several biotechnologists to high paid jobs to create regulatory and eco friendly products that can help save the environment in the long run.
There are even starts up biotechnologists coming up with wonderful ideas and creations which are making a huge name in the industry. Even if one is not able to find a job profile, a startup company with a great concept will be funded for by investors as the potential of such industries in the market is well recognized.
