Yeah the exact opposite of ours, well a 1.3 is fucking good then. I've no clue how the german economy and research has a focus on research but I hope you'll get hired as soon as possible! mathmanchris I can understand their way of thinking, though I suppose having both specialists ( so bio engineer and bio researcher) helps you to work on the project from several perspectives which is seems to be a better, but more expensive, choice

#85 - mathmanchris (07/29/2015) [-]
Totally agree with you. I took economy courses in uni so I slightly understand how managers and business people think, but it's just dumb if you campare a salary of, let's say 70,000€ a year, versus the cost if you mess up projects worth tens of millions. Maybe it's just me.
1.3 is the second best grade you can get for exams and term papers, so yeah, it's near perfect score. On that note, congratulations, datgermanguy.

Thank you, I appreciate it. I worked hard on my studies, and since i'm far from a natural talent for learning, it was pretty hard at times.
Just wishing it would finally pay up with a nice job...

Exactly, I'd rather invest in specialist to secure a good project than take the chance of fucking up because I was too cheap to hire them and took only all-rounders. €70.000,00,- is a huge salary, but only a fraction compared to millions.

#89 - datgermanguy (07/29/2015) [-]
Most of the jobs don't require specialists, since many tasks are routine that can be done by allrounders as well as "specialists", especially in entry level jobs for scientists.

Companies, however, tend to write high requirements in their job descriptions - even in entry-level jobs - in order to sort as many applicants as possible out. That way, they don't need that many interviews, and time equals money.

A logical thing to do, of course. But it takes your chance away to impress the interviewer and show why exactly you are good for the job. You are basically just a simple array of numbers which gets compared to other arrays.

#26 - mathmanchris (07/28/2015) [-]
It's pretty hard to find jobs with a pure bio degree because a lot of companies rather employ bio engineers or even chemical engineers. In most cases you need a link between research and build the damn thing, so in their logic it's easier to hire people who can "do both". Bio engineering is becoming quite a thing in Germany though and universities like Dortmund seem to concentrate a lot more on this these days (from what I hear).

I'm heading into my 3rd year for biokogy. The plan I decided to take was to go for both education and just my Bio degree in general.

A lot of things factor into this choice, most of all is the state of the job market. In America here, good biology (and STEM) teachers are in high demand and will be for the next decade. So by getting an education major added on i can find a job in there once I've graduated and have a steady source of income.

I also wish to provide a more hands on and realistic approach to teaching biology. Actually show students there is more to biology than just "mitochondria is tge powerhouse of the cell". But that's something else entirely.

Then, once I have things fully figured out I hope to pursue my masters and do field research on my off time, possibly incorporate students into that who are interested.

Idk, I've thought a lot about what I want to do and where I want to go, and I still do. But this seems to be the thing I consistently go back to.

Ohh alright. From what I've gathered research work is usually being done by participating in 4-6 year projects, but I suppose you knew that
User avatar
#21 - datgermanguy (07/28/2015) [-]
Yes, that's exaclty true!
It's just very hard getting those research jobs. Finished my Master with a 1,3 and I was only middle class of all students from that semester. Obviously almost all professors give their students very good grades, so it's hard to show companies how hard you worked for yours. Which in turn makes it hard to get a job.
