I get asked the same thing all of the time: How do I get a job in marine biology? The first thing I say is, do you have some time to talk? Marine Biology is a career that many people want when they grow up. They watch some great documentaries and TV shows and now even social media content of scientists and conservationists sharing their work in incredible places do some amazing things. When people graduate from university/college and start to look for a job they get frustrated about a number of things: not getting a job, not getting paid enough, having to move to remote places, etc. The career isn't for everyone and there are a few things that you should consider before you jump into the pursuit of a career in marine biology. Dr. David Shiffman shared an exercise he conducts with his students so they know what to expect when pursuing this career. I want to share it with you because I think it's super important.
