Let’s talk about a real epidemic in zoology jobs.
Back when I was still in uni I managed to get an interview for a research assistant position with orang-utans in Borneo for a year, on the Gunung Palung Orang-utan Project.
Graduating uni is a big achievement, but it’s also a big change. I knew I loved studying and would miss it, but wasn’t quite prepared for some of the challenges of transitioning to post-student life. And it’s only been two months!
This is me! I’m a recent Zoology graduate currently working an office job in Bristol. Over the next year I have two volunteer positions confirmed – at a seal rescue and rehabilitation centre in the Netherlands, and a sea turtle research project in Costa Rica.
