Where to Find Science Jobs

where to find science jobs

In the current climate, finding jobs in any industry can be challenging. With unemployment rates rising due to COVID-19, we're seeing more and more people heading online in search for their next job.

One of the great things about looking for science jobs is that you'll almost always find something you can apply for. Even in times of crisis where other industries struggle, science job vacancies continue to appear. In fact, the demand for inventive science professionals is higher than ever as we struggle to get this new virus under control.

Knowing where to find science jobs can help you get ahead of other candidates with experience in your field. We'll help you find science jobs that you can apply for right now to get your science career moving in the right direction. Here are a few ways you can find science jobs that fit your criteria quickly. 


Make a list of key criteria

Finding the right science job for you can be daunting if you haven't outlined the criteria you're looking for. Ask yourself the following questions and note down your answers. This will help you look for the right kind of science jobs in the right area:

  • Would you be willing to travel for your dream job, or do you want to work where you currently live?
  • Do you want to work part-time, full-time, or do you want an internship/apprenticeship?
  • Would you like to specialise in a particular field?
  • What level of experience do you have? Is this enough for the types of science jobs you have in mind?
  • What are your salary expectations?

Most science jobs websites will allow you to filter jobs down using criteria not dissimilar to what we've outlined above. This means you can quickly turn an overwhelming list of 350 science jobs into an easy-to-digest selection of 40-50.

Specialist job sites vs typical job sites

One of the main errors people make when trying to find science jobs is turning to very general job sites. Now, in our experience, most science companies will avoid sharing job adverts on these kinds of sites, because they want to attract a very niche group of professionals.

If you want to know where to find science jobs, we'd recommend looking on websites that specialise in jobs in the science industry. Not only will it save you time (because you won't have to sift through hundreds of irrelevant/vaguely relevant jobs), but it will also help you find opportunities that aren't listed on your average job site. 

A lot of science job sites, like ours, will allow you to create a candidate profile. This means you can upload your CV, set up job alerts and apply to new science job vacancies as soon as they appear.  

So, if you're wondering where to find science jobs, this should help you make a start! Remember, we have a whole team of science recruitment professionals working here at Hyper Recruitment Solutions, who are eager to help you find the science job dreams become a reality.
