Science Career Information for
College and High School Students

Since building this web site, The Scientist's Guide to Traditional and Alternative Careers, I have received many e-mails from high school and college students asking for more information on science careers. Much of the information at my site is geared toward those with graduate training, so here, by popular demand, are a few links to get budding scientists started on their search for more information on science careers. If you would like to suggest a site for inclusion on this page, please e-mail
