Brainstorming--Nontraditional Career Choices with Micro

Hi there,

I have also recently graduated with a BCs in microbiology in the UK.  I am
currently seeking employment.  I have had most success with job agencies so
far, as I have nought experience, and about a head-full of knowledge (other
people's experiences ...since the first human figured out the kinetic energy in
a piece of wood).

I can't be of much help, but what I would recommend would be sell your
house, move to a developing country, and set up your own business doing
something you are keen about in a self funded way - you should have enough
funds to run a very basic shed full of cheap apparatus (bunsen powered
incubator, petri dishes, specimens for local population, local-grown agar
substitute), and enough money left over to survive the low costs of living.
That all sounds rather exciting, and certainly of the beat.  Agree?
