Hello everyone. I would like to know if any of you have a degree or career in environmental biology, ecology, biogeography, GIS, or any other closely related field and if you could share some thoughts on you career, job, and/or degree.
What kind of degree do you have? What is your area of study? Do you work for the government or in the private sector? Do you conduct lots of lab research or field studies? How’s the pay? Etc, etc, etc…
I ask this because I know that I want to go into biogeography and similar areas, but I am not at a level where deciding what to specifically go into is easy. I just reached sophomore level at my university, so I have not taken any courses that are concentrated on a specific subject. The classes I have taken have given me a general view of several fields (genetics, geology, microbiology, and so on…). I have so many interests (amphibians, climate, CP’s, soil/water/air quality, insects, etc.) and deciding to focus on just one is hard. I have talked to a couple of my professors and advisors, but would like more insight and examples regarding jobs and experiences in the described field(s).
Thanks for sharing….
