The journal Science, published by the American Association
for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), has an online news center
with a special science career section.
Here you'll find a collection of recent stories on careers in
science from a variety of news publications. There's also a lively
science career discussion forum where science students, academics,
employers and current scientists give each other tips on navigating
their career paths.
There's also a job search tool to look through an updated
listing of current science employment opportunities. For example,
we put the term "research" into the search engine and pulled up
1289 job listings in scientific research from around the world.
There's also a library of employer profiles, so that you can get to
know some of the larger employers in the science industry.
You can even open an account on the site, post your resume, and
get up-to-date job openings emailed to you. Your account allows you
to make your resume and profile available to headhunters and
employers in the science industry.
This site will help you imagine all the opportunities you'll be
able to explore with your bachelor's degree in
biomedical science from National University.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAS),
through its online journal Science, has a free digital
booklet available on science careers. The 2012 Career Directory spotlights several
of the largest employers of science graduates.
The good news presented in this booklet is that you don't need a
PhD to start a science career with a large corporation. According
to the booklet's article, "Wanted: BS and MS Scientists in Life
"As corporations expand beyond their
basic research and development foundations, there is a greater need
for MS and BS level researchers who can plan experiments, conduct
investigations, and lead teams in crucial areas such as operations,
quality assurance, and engineering."
Pronouncing that today's BS and MS scientists are strategically
vital, the article states that:
"For many leaders in life sciences,
the role of BS and MS scientists cannot be overstated--they are
regarded as vital to the growth and advancement of companies and
The article interviews both BS and MS graduates launching
successful new careers, as well as executives in charge of hiring
new employees to fill personnel needs at large science
One key to success mentioned in the article, is creating a
scientific specialty in your education, such as cell physiology.
That's one reason why National University's bachelor of biomedical
science degree program allows you to tailor your course selections
to create your own portfolio of scientific expertise. You can focus
in on anatomy, or biochemistry, nutrition, or any combination of
courses that fit your interests and goals.
It's great to know that the AAS agrees that the future for
science grads remains bright!
