Jobs in healthcare are plentiful, but there are certain opportunities that go unexplored for the simple fact that not a lot of people are aware they even exist.
Biostatisticians gather and analyze data obtained from studies on a diversity of subjects. Publications on health related findings, such as the negative side effects of certain drugs, are the work of biostatisticians. A bachelor's degree with a major in statistics or mathematics is required for entry-level positions in this field.
Cytotechnologists spend a lot of time peering through microscopes and communicating their findings to pathologists for the accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of cancer and other cellular abnormalities. If you have a bachelor's degree and a desire for laboratory detective work, this may be a worthy avenue of pursuit.
Opportunities for employment in either of these fields can be greatly aided with the help of professional recruiters who do the legwork for you in locating potential employers.
