Hey! You want to help your country be safe from food insecurity or the pandemic of deadly possible diseases?

You want to provide the best for your country and bring better scenes to the role? If this is you then you surely need to know the various areas where biotechnology can help!

Careers are fun to be involved with. You find yourself doing something that ignites your passion and adds value to your life!

Biotechnology helps by involving various technologies to create an innovative product or modify an existing one. The end goal remains the same: helping human needs!

And it covers industries like food, textiles, pharmaceutical, agriculture, animal husbandry, presenting their need for biotechnologists to expand and involve in research. The scope of biotechnology has extended to immunology, virology, and other subjects like health, agriculture, cell biology, plant physiology, and seed technology.

We are not saying things are good only when careers are made right. Even though you might feel a bit stressed over your career decision, how about deciding to not run away from this thought but finding, if biotechnology can help your career grow or not?

The course fee charges between 1.5 – 2.25 Lakhs per annum, and the average salary of a fresher is 4.2 lakhs per annum, which means you can earn back your salary in less than two years! Let us now see what aptitudes a biotechnologist should have!

1. Emotional intelligence

Vaccines are all-time most helpful things that happened during covid. The end result was not only helpful but was lifesaving!

To get to this end result, we need to be intelligent not only on the normal days, but also when we get to witness those emotionally difficult days!

Controlling emotions is a vital skill needed and if you think, you are up for it, then let’s get started!

2. Collaboration

Some people prefer working alone while some prefer working in groups. Every work opportunity is a sum of opportunities that require working alone or working in groups.

And for a smooth operation, we need to make sure we are comfortable in collaborating with others as well as while being ourselves.

We should be able to research together tally the results to come on a better page and develop a good product together.

3. Complex problem Solving

Things do not come easy and this applies to every field that we would work in. Willing to bring better solutions on the table is a wilful art.

Does your urge to solve the problem and to bring something better on the table remain the same even when you go through difficult situations?

If your persistence remains constant through the stress and everything that may come up, then surely you should try a hand here!

4. Diversity of thought

Willing to think out of the box and bring better results at hand? With so many repeated solutions, would you like to take a dig and try something new and unique?

If you are willing to bring newness in the era, how about trying your hands in biotechnology?

A field that demands you to be different and bring newness every single time!

5. Communication and Time Management

Having the right way to communicate and tell plans in a group is necessary. Having verbal as well as written communication is necessary. This helps in making sure we are passing the plan clearly in the right manner.

Are you good at managing your time while multitasking? Do you find it great to find yourself working on various projects? If this is you then you will be able to multitask, easily!
