"Peatland specialist."
As a new biologist in the peat industry. I had a good experience in growing media formulation, plant growth and growing media physical and chemical characterization. I developped conservation plan for degraded peatbog.
July 2016
Pros: The challenging environment.
Cons: The low pay-to-work ratio.
August 2017
"Wacky Zoo World."
Biologist in Chicago:
Pros: I love working with different people across the country on zoo related biology and conservation efforts. My job involves customer service, data analysis, technical writing, project management and software testing/upkeep. I also get to travel quite a bit.
Cons: Being an NPO and trying to enact a corporate structure is hard for scientists apparently. Rules are not made clear or followed in terms of salaries, department structuring and business decisions are not always based on what's best but who they know. The pay for this position is extremely low for the city location and living is hard.
