Date: Apr 11 2007 Major: Biology (This Major's Salary over time) Highschool and college students should do job shaddowing or an internship for an extended period of time as part of a degree. Students should also speak to people in their field about available opportunities, pay scales as well as the difficulty of finding possitions. Colleges/Advisers should speak to students about hot fields or fields that are lacking employees even if that means they might loose a student from their department. Colleges should offer less generalized degrees which do not help students get jobs and offer more specialize degrees that employers are looking to fill.Liberal arts majors are almost doomed to getting a minimum wage low paying job even with their degree. Biology majors learn a great deal when they get their degree, but there are so many students graduating with the degree that a master's is required. Often the degree is over looked as broad and companies don't respect it because many students do not graduate with Laboratory experience because their college didn't offer it. This is not always the case and when a Biology major graduates it's important to make sure possible employers know of your lab experience if you have it.
