SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Any idea where I can work during my gap year? I feel like it is difficult for post baccs because we lack the strong science background needed for research. Ideally, I'm looking for a job in the $60k/year ballpark so I can pay off loans, but I don't think that is realistic. That's what I was making in the business world. I have had no luck finding a science teaching job because I don't have teaching certification. What can I do with my economics degree??
