How can I ensure a successful future with a biochemistry degree?
I'll be graduating in December with a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry. I'm currently debating whether to go to grad school (whether I can afford to go to grad school) or to look for a job. I'm not sure what types of jobs are available for someone with less than a year of experience and only a bachelors degree. I'm most interested in working in a laboratory setting but I'm not particular as to the setting because I realize that any experience is a step in the right direction at this point. What's the best way to get started and to ensure a long future in this industry?

I know a really groovy Episcopal priest with an MS in biochemistry who runs a hamburger drive-in during the week. I also know someone who has a BS in biochem who works as an aircraft parts mechanic (and makes good money.) It's not the degree, it's doing what makes you all you want to be.
