Professional organizations and journals are also good sources for job leads.

The strongest growth areas for jobs in this profession include molecular biology, laboratory animal medicine, toxicology, immunology, diagnostic pathology, environmental medicine, aquaculture, and comparative medical research. 30 GETTING STARTED YOU SPENT FOUR YEARS IN COLLEGE.
