My background:
I have a BSc in Applied Sciences (Biology & Chemistry) (General Degree)
in 2016 I finished my MSc in Forensic Ballistics
I had work as School Science Technician, and Admin (Engineering) in my home country
Since my graduation back in 2016, I struggle to find any jobs in forensic sciences and analytical laboratory. Opportunities in Forensic Sciences is extremely rare, and most of the analytical lab role require experience.
Now, I am in my early 30s and the only thing I have is a low skilled part time job with no future, and received offer in a partially funded PhD (partial bursary to cover tuition fee only) in developing a multilayer biomaterial for ballistic and impact trial. I have doubt about this PhD, afraid spending 3 years of not earning anything and the future development.
Both my MSc and BSc offer some modules in Analytical chemistry, and I have always show a strong interest in it.

My question:
Would be doing another MSc in Instrumental Analytical Chemistry help getting into the industry?
or there are better route I should try?
Appreciate for any comments and apologize for my poor english

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (710)
Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (895)
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (395)
I think there is a better option than the ones suggested (let us know in the thread!) (93)
