What kind of jobs can I get with a bachelor's degree in Biology?

So I absolutely love biology, and I was wondering what kind of jobs I could get with a biology major. I used to want to be a nurse, but then I realized that that is more taking care of people, and not really looking at the science part of it. I kinda want to do something with medical research, and I'm really good with genetics particularly. Im just kinda worried about the job outlook aspect of it, like how hard it will be to find a job and that kind of stuff.

Are you interested in microbiology? My sister works as microbiologist and she says that it is a very good and interesting job, salaries and benefits are OK. You can start as a trainee and work your way up. Check out this website it is dedicated to microbiologist jobs, she found her job there.

Well, I don't know about specifics as far as getting a job right out of college with that degree, but it's the perfect Bachelors when applying to Med School and also for applying the Masters-level PA programs.

It will be nearly impossible to find a job with an MD or a PhD in the life sciences. It will be completely impossible to find a relevant job with just a BS in biology, and you'll be overqualified for all the unskilled retail and food-service jobs you could have gotten otherwise. Nursing really is the best option.
