Biotechnology has become one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States. Almost half of all biotech jobs require only a bachelor's degree, which gives you plenty of job opportunities right after graduation—no further education required! Of course, should you want to take the pre-professional route, there are plenty of jobs available there too. The short story is this: biotech majors have options. You can choose to be a technician, biostatistician, engineer specialist, business development manager, pharmacist and plenty more.
