Our goal is to serve students and others who are considering biotech careers by providing information about the careers in the biotech industry that do not require advanced degrees.
We began this site because we noticed that many science career sites take the opposite approach. They focus on the small percent of industrial science jobs that require a Ph.D. Not only is this practice misleading, it may be harmful. We suspect that the practice of limiting job descriptions to those requiring advanced degrees makes science careers seem out of reach and may keep many students from considering science careers.
We're here to correct the impression that science jobs require a Ph.D. Like many other industries, a large fraction of the jobs in biotech are held by people with Bachelors and Associates degrees. A frequent combination is a Bachelors degree from a four-year college with a community college degree or certificate in Biotechnology.
