There has been a lot of discussion about majors, particularly when it comes to salary and a young adult paying back a $60,000 loan to Yale. Somebody asked what a biology major might earn, since this student expressed an interest in research.
My daughter (biology major, out of school for almost 2 years, current job is not in research) was just offered a job at a very well known facility. She would be working alongside medical researchers, doing a variety of different tasks. The salary is just under $60,000 a year, and it comes with benefits.
She turned it down to focus on returning to school. I posted this to let people know what is currently available to recent (or relatively recent) college graduates who major in biology.
