Hopefully the prospects are better for health sciences! It feels very frustrating to have found something that I actually love and think I would enjoy, but now may not actually be able to do anything with 😢

I did a biomedical science degree and regret it. I wish I did nursing. I think you need to have a set career path and possibly go on to do post grad course to have success in science. I haven't worked for quite a few years, but pre kids I did pick up a couple of jobs in the field, but nothing I would want to do long term.

Yes the majority of the course went on to do medicine, but a lot of the subjects were the same as the other science degrees, but just more human biology/health fields in 3rd year. Originally I was considering pathology or genetic counselling, but life didn't allow me to do a post grad course. I worked in a research facility lab at a university and also in a lung function testing lab in a hospital.

They were ok - like a lot of jobs they became very repetitive and didn't pay great.

It's good to have a look at some career paths and then work back from there. You might enjoy something in a lab or medical field of science, or research.
I know a lot of folk in enviro science and I work in endangered species policy. The jobs are few and far between unfortunately but they are out there.

I think it is just jobs in general are few and far between at the moment especially in mining fields and government I wouldn't let that put you off as the job market changes all the time and it is often just the first job that can be hard to get. Mind you we are always happy to move to where the work is so maybe it is different for us ☺

I don't have a science degree but I have 5 friends who do. 2 are based here in SA, 1 is going to be out of a job at the end of the year. They are in cancer research only, the other is skin tissue and burns. The other 3 went o/s, 1 in Toronto earning an obscene amount of $ based in health science the other 2 are in Princeton in New Jersey they are also in health sciences
