    If you plan on remaining within the scope of your degree, the career prospects will be heavily associated with lab positions in industry or big pharma.

    The truth is, if you are willing to apply and look outside of your comfort zone (the degree in itself), there are other opportunities available. Sales for big pharma/scientific equipment companies is an option. Other opportunities could be for a consultant, analyst, HR, law, food science, regulatory affairs, teaching, or medical affairs liason (although a higher degree is usually preferred here).
