    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
