Default I have a degree in biochemistry and work in the biotechnology field. How to change...



...career, what r my options? After years of working in the biotechnology field, I've come to realized that I'm not happy or passionate about the job I do. I feel like I wasted my time and money at school just to find out years later that biotech. or the science does not interest me as much...basically I'm not passionate about science as I once used to be. Has anyone with a science background been through a similar experience as Im going through right now. Would like advice on how to deal with this situation.Worst of all, I don't know what I want to do career wise!

I very much still like science. But there are a lot of engineer/science stop-out, drop-outs; people that move out of the specialized field and do something else.

I read a govt report saying that it,s actually a great benefit to other fields and businesses to get the eng/science trained people for various reasons.
So I would suggest you confidently apply to jobs that interest you, and keep in mind that you have the intellectual tools to catch up in knowledge in a new field.
