Dear student,

Your interest in these three fields, given your love for biology, is appreciable. All three fields have a lot of scope currently in India and abroad. This is a good time for you to explore different areas as in the coming one or two years you will have to make your decision.

Pharmacy graduates can work in the field of production, maketing, research, regulatory affairs and in academics as well. Other than the obvious option of working in or running a pharmacy in a private or hospital set-up, they can also be employed in the Government sector in the drugs regulatory authority. One of the major sectors they can work in is the drugs/cosmetics production market where they can either work in production, marketing or R&D. Registered professionals have a lot of scope in US and UK.

Biochemistry graduates can find work in pharmaceutical firms, food and beverage production companies, chemichal manufacturers, research labs and companies, cosmetics production, ec. Again, in the private sector they can work in production, sales and marketing or R&D. They can also be employed in lab services for research institutes, public health labs, blood services, forensics and other such scientific laboratories.

Similarly, graduates from biomedical sciences would also be great assets for research and laboratory sciences.

So the best kinds of jobs for all these three fields would be in laboratory services and research organisations, where the pay also would be higher.

Entry level graduates from these fields are generally paid 3-5lacs per year in good research or production oriented firms. In the US salaries would start at $ 25000 per year. In fact, according to the US Bureau of Labour Statistics, in May 2011 the average salary for biochemists was around $85000 PA. A word of caution, dear student, these attractive salaries are generally available for more qualified professionals in the field who either hold a MSc or PhD. Therefore higher studiesare recommended for these fields.
