I was hoping to ask some professionals to see if I'm on the right track for a Bioinformatics/Genomics career once I graduate with my master's degree.
My master's degree is in Individualized Genomics and Health at Johns Hopkins University. It is concentrated in genomics and bioinformatics (mainly focused on biology rather than programming, but I do have experience in R, Python, and Java from some of my courses).
I'm mainly concerned about my current job and how that will translate into my future career as a bioinformatics scientist. Currently, I'm working as a Research Associate in the Systems Engineering department. My duties are more in line with statistical evaluation, data visualization, and data collection from classified Naval missions (has nothing to do with biology). I chose this job because they offered me a part-time position while I finish up my Masters's.
Here is a copy of my Resume with some private information left out: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qyReaRUzX2daHDpFNbf0YIy-OnVmo3_A/view?usp=sharing
tl;dr : I graduate next year, and am worried about my current position being useful as a bioinformatics scientist. Should I keep the job or start looking for something else?
