Biotechnology

Biotechnology is a high-demand, high-growth, and high-wage field, especially in the Bay Area, where it’s a $8-10 billion dollar industry, with about 1500 companies, and expected to grow by about 13% over the next 10 years.

There are jobs available at all levels of education, with about 25% of jobs available for folks with community college coursework, and 37% of jobs for those with a bachelor’s degree.

After earning certificates or degrees in biotechnology salaries for California biotech workers more than doubled (to $30,000 for a certificate-holder, and to $48,000 for a degree-holder).  This is definitely a sector where you can find good employment!
