Throughout my academic career I have been trying to find out what exactly I want to do with my life. For right now I just want to find a way to provide for myself. As for where I want to go I do not have a preference, for now I should stay near my parents just in case something goes terribly wrong. So finding what I want to do in New Hampshire will be difficult but it is the safer option for me right now. I tried to find something I could do with my degree that can be found everywhere and with some help from the people running the Career Clinic at Keene State College I started looking into being a clinical lab technician or a clinical lab technologist.
A clinical lab technologist requires a B.S in medial technology or life sciences and may require licensing. A lab technician requires an associates and licensing.
Licensing usually requires work in an approved site and an examination.
To start I need to find somewhere nearby that is hiring for those positions.
Then I need to fulfill the hiring requirements.
set up an interview.
Hopefully get a job!
These jobs may need lab experience, some do not for those with Bachelor’s or Master’s degree. These jobs will be heavy in lab skills.
If I find something I am interested in, I will want to hone my skills that are related to the field. If they are working with DNA, for example, I may want to get some more experience with PCR.
The steps will then be similar to those listed for the Clinical Lab Technician/Technologist.
I have some options. I just need to figure out what I am more interested in and what I can afford to do.
