Hi everyone. I'm a recent graduate from an undergraduate B.S. Human Biology/Molecular Biology program. I've applied to and been accepted to a few very good Masters in Bioinformatics programs. I'm excited about this opportunity to learn more about Bioinformatics and gain more experience before starting the job hunt (!), but the thing is that I don't have any practical experience in the field of Bioinformatics. Is it smart to start with my Masters degree in this field even though I don't have work experience with it?
A caveat: I worked with research during my undergrad and have had an internship working with Epic technology systems at a hospital where I studied, but just no experience with Bioinformatics per se.
My worry is that employers will be off put if I have a masters degree in the field but no work experience. The reason I would take the opportunity is because there's no other way I can think of to get into the Bioinf. field.
Any advice or feedback is appreciated. Peace xx
