Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Hello Everyone,

    I just signed up for this program to ask a question that borders me a lot.

    I have a BSc in Biochemistry and thereafter left the field and obtained masters in IT. I have worked in the IT field for about 5 years and completely lost passion in it and want to go back to my first degree.

    I think I need to start afresh as an applicant in Lab because I lack experience in the medical field. I intend to have MSc in Biochemistry but I was told I need to be working in this field. I need a job to keep body and soul together. You have bills to pay. So it is not easy at the moment leaving a well paying job and starting as an applicant all together

    Is there any suggestion as to how to do this? How to switch this career?

    Any help would be appreciated.
