I always believe if you are looking for a career in BIOTECHNOLOGY, you definitely need to plan ahead. Most of the biotech aspirants are not truly opted for BIOTECHNOLOGY. Reason is simple, before coming to BIOTECHNOLOGY, like me, you might have tried your luck in Medicine entrance exams.
It is not because we don’t have jobs, it’s just planning and finding information. Let me give an example. During my MSc studies, in first year I have decided that I will be doing research. So I need a fellowship to get in to PhD. So I started preparing for GATE and CSIR exams from beginning of the second year and prepared so well that I was able to clear my GATE and got admission in JNTU. Some of my classmates might have thought I am crazy for getting ready for so early for the exams.
Now a days with internet, we are flooded with information. Please spend some time on web find out which sites are offering admissions, fellowships or biotechnology jobs (for example helpBIOTECH, Moster, Naukri etc. Register with them to get updates.
