Hey there everyone,
I am a student in a Bachelor of Clinical Research program currently, and scheduled to graduate in May 2012. In January 2012, as the last part of the program, we are supposed to do an internship. I read several of the discussions in this forum, and it seems many of you are already in the field, so I was hoping this would be a good place to get some questions answered.
My first goal in this future job (besides landing the actual job) is to travel. What are the possibilities of scoring a job in this area that will let me travel? Or, I was also considering just moving somewhere new, like taking the internship in Europe somewhere. I will be 24 when I graduate, and although I have a big family, I have no real "strings" to keep me in the States. Any suggestions/comments in this area?
Also, I was curious as to what my salary starting out might be. Let's say I land an internship and the company offers me a position after the internship is complete. What kind of salary could I expect out of the gate?
It seems like it is hard to break into this business. How many years experience should I have before trying to move my way up the ladder?
These are just a few questions I've come up with, and have lots more. So any answers or recommendations or suggestions are highly appreciated and helpful. Thanks so much in advance for your time, and please feel free to add on any advice you may have for a student!
