The bioscience industry needs people with diverse skills. And while education is a good way to get those skills, you may have some of the skills already from your previous work experience.
Here are some examples:
If you find you do have great, transferrable skills, the key is to learn how to talk about your skills in a new way. Just like any industry has its own language, the bioscience industry uses “jargon” that is only used by people employed in that field.
For example, a food preparation worker may talk about keeping a clean work environment. In a bioscience job, keeping a clean work environment is called an aseptic environment. Same concept, same idea, just different words.
