Hi! I’m a senior graduating with a B.S. in Psychology with a specialization in Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience and zoology minor. I’ve changed career paths quite a few times from initially being premed, to possibly prelaw, and then I decided on neuropsychology. I’m graduating early with the intent to travel and explore other cultures and experiences before I officially enter the work force and start my career but I’m no longer sold on a PHD and being stuck at a desk. Any advice?

What advice are you looking for?

You’re picking a very difficult time in the world to travel. One of my friends was just quarantined in Turks and Caicos (stuck in a hotel room with an MP outside their door) and my boss is now quarantined in a London hotel room, both after getting COVID.

Not sure what you’re interested in, but consider UX Research as a career path. Your background would be a good fit. While you need be “behind a desk” at times, it’s a job that allows you to visit various locations, interact with a lot of ppl, and work creatively often away from a computer

I’m on my 2nd day of a new job and it’s nothing like what I was expecting or what the hiring manager said.

I just don’t know what to do, I feel like this isn’t the place for me but I haven’t even given it a full week yet. Has anyone experienced feelings like this before? What did you do?

Hey y’all so I’m about to graduate with my masters in microbiology- I am a lab coordinator (3yrs) with lab assistant experience and from what I’m seeing I mainly qualify for jobs that require a bachelors degree in the biopharma industry ( I fall short in the experience department for jobs requiring a masters degree) I’m not sure what to do or where to look for a job that requires my degree level with limited experience. Any advice? ( open to other industries).
