I started my graduate job two weeks before handing in my dissertation. I knew just how competitive finding graduate work can be across all fields of study, so I started applying and attending interviews around half way through my one year MSc.
I secured a job as a Graduate Laboratory Technician at the University of Exeter, splitting my time between two main roles:
- Working in fish husbandry supporting academic research within a Home Office licensed environment.
- Assisting the management of the biosciences research laboratories.
I have subsequently moved to a position at the National Marine Aquarium as a Scallop Hatchery Technician.
