Check a website called biospace.com.....

Don't limit yourself to bacteriology.....your degree also qualifies you 
for other types of work....molecular biology...cell biology....to name a 
few. The field of medical technology requires ASCP certification, but 
check with local med techs to see if you can work toward certification 
while you work. Quite a few years ago, I took a bacti job at a major 
medical center with just a BS in Micro. I studied and took the 
Microbiology Specialist test and got my certification as a clinical 
microbiologist. I don't know if doing it that way is still possible. 
Contact private testing labs....biological and chemical....
Check with the state and local health departments....
Sales is a possibility, but most companies prefer someone a bit older 
than a new graduate....with developed "people skills" and some practical 

Good Luck....
