    When I finish my Biochemistry degree ans graduate, ive been looking at possible jobs and career when I finish. So far these are the best ive come across;

    Chartered Accountant
    Analytical Chemist
    Healthcare Scientist
    Hospital work in Hematology, doing x-rays etc

    But ive also read alot on this forum how its hard for people who have graduated with a science-based degree to find work..is this also true??
    I dont think Ill be one of them guys able to work in a factory or lab all my life. I love science and i love learning new things regarding science, which is why im studying Biochemsitry. But I dont want to work so incredibly hard and then in the end receive nothing for it. What do you think is the best route for me? Finish my degree then use the degree to get into accountancy/politics...
    All in all I want a science based job, that is decently paid. I dont need 100k a year kind of years + but at least a well paid one. Also at l;east something Id enjoy and consider doing for 10+ years, something fun and that id wake up happy going to work on mondays haha?

    It really depends on what you're interested in and what will make you happy. I work in research, it's not superbly well paid but I think I live well and definitely enjoy my work. Your biochem degree is very employable because of all the transferable skills you've gained.
What's the best type of cheese?
