While we know well ourselves here at Hyper Recruitment Solutions how exciting, fascinating and rewarding science jobs at all levels are, we are equally aware that the science and technology sectors have long been burdened by a dull reputation that simply doesn't reflect their everyday reality.
If you are considering why you should choose a career in a science or technology field such as pharmacology, bioinformatics or immunology, here are a few reasons that may help you to make your decision.
A chance to change the world
Holders of science jobs have been at the forefront of some of the most significant developments underpinning how we live, how we eat, how we sleep and even how we die.
Whether you find a role in biotechnology, medical, telecommunications, engineering, food technology or all manner of other science or technology fields, you can be sure of helping to shape our world.
It's not just for academics
The stereotypical image associated with STEM fields has often been one of staid academia. But in a world in which science and technology are now widely understood to be instrumental to everything from smartphones and tablets to medicine and in-car satellite navigation, even the once-stuffiest areas are now being thrust into the mainstream.
That trend is being further encouraged by the rise of such science and technology-related TV programmes as The Gadget Show and The Big Bang Theory.
Creativity is vital
Have you long thought that science recruitment agencies are only interested in brainboxes? Think again. Imperative to all of the big science and technology breakthroughs, past and present, has been imagination and creativity.
If new innovations are to keep being achieved, new entrants into science and technology will be required who are able to dream up original ideas and theories, whether they are working on a new food or drink, discovering a potentially life-changing drug or devising exciting engineering solutions.
You'll never be bored
Returning to our observation at the top of this piece, technology and science jobs are rarely the dry, uninteresting roles that they have often been portrayed as being.
How could that be the case, when you could be developing a new chocolate bar, researching ways of making cars more eco-friendly or gazing at the stars? If you want to be at the forefront of the latest developments that are coming to define the 21st century, science is the field to be in.
Whether you are seeking openings in research and development, packaging and sustainability, procurement or any of a wide range of other science and technology functions and fields, allow Hyper Recruitment Solutions to be your science recruitment agency partner.
