    ... specifically in bio or a bio related (i.e. marine biology/zoology/ecology/environmental/ just anything that can give me more of a chance to be outside or more "hands-on"). i know there are, but i mainly wanted to know how many options are available for people who dont want to do research (or med). basically living in a lab for a good portion of my life doesnt sound too fun to me -

    look for an environmental inspection job, your outside all the time! Marine biologists dont get paid well but if its not about mone then i'd do that!

    I work in blood banking. A fun job, but am currently applying to physician assistant schools.

    Science majors tend to have a narrow outlook on jobs, but there are so many out there that utilize your degree.

    Plus a degree is a degree. A lot of companies just want you to have a degree and don't care.

    You chose a tough one to make great money, but if its what you enjoy then keep looking for a job until you are satisfied.

    Good luck!
