Industry jobs for a recent MS grad

Postby Tad » Tue Dec 07, 2004 10:05 pm

As an undergrad, I studied chemical engineering. Interested in the biotech industry, but without much biology to my name, I decided to supplement my education with a MS in Biotechnology. I'm interested in obtaining an industry job after graduation (I'm open to production or research). What can I do to enhance my chances of landing a job in this ever-increasingly competitive field?

Tad, a MS in Biotechnology is a very big question to most employers. You must start to focus your studies on something specific. Generalized degree choices like that one are often a mistake. Combining it with ChE may be OK, though, if you can tune it to look like a BioChemE degree,
