I'm currently studying to get my BHSc in Bioinformatics. However, lately I'm discovering from a few MSc graduates in the field of biology that it is not a very good degree to pursue as the career prospects are very bad. Is this true? I was really looking forward to become a scientist, but if I have to struggle to do research and get good pay to not only support my family but also pay off my student debt, it doesn't seem like a viable option.
You all seem to be pretty knowledgeable in this area. I would appreciate any feedback you might have on this matter to help me make an informed decision. Thank you kindly.
