I went to grad school. Currently 3rd year genetics PhD student. I chose grad school for two reasons
> PhD guarantees six figure job 5 years after grad (if you publish well) >You get paid <peanuts> to be a student
I am also a computational biologist. 6 years programming. Perl, Python, R, UNIX (bash shell), AWS, machine learning. If I can't score a faculty job one day I'm definitely going to score a quant job either at some finance firm or some other data mining gig.
>tfw already a Nature author
>learn some skills and money will come. Get rich quick only works with large equity which I don't really have.
What are you're interests? I have 12k in meme Vanguard Roth IRA
My interests are in writing, journalism, and economic policy. I'm trying to break into either of those fields in DC, where I'm originally from. There are always plenty of jobs in that area, so I'm not too worried about not finding something there. It's just stressful trying to find a job.
My GPA will be a 3.3 upon graduation.
>inb4 money is the only thing that matters
I don't want to be consultingfag rich, but I do want to be well off.
Yeah I might just go the physical labor route after I finish my degree. Thinking about getting a CDL and OTR trucking. I'd rather be underemployed than start a career I hate. Sucks wasting time and money going to one of the top public universities in the country and realizing this now tho.
>>1090087 It's all open office plan now, senpai. Businesses don't trust you to not watch porn all day so they got rid of offices and even cubicles. If you happen to need some peace and quiet to concentrate, you're pretty much fucked.
