Scope of Biotechnology Jobs and Career

Biotechnology is basically a research oriented field that is combines biology and technology. The concept of biotechnology is is not new but if we talk about modern biotechnology then it is just three decades old. In biotechnology, microorganism performs number of functions to yield a new product from the old one. Different sets of technologies are used in modern biotechnology industry leading to better and improved variety of products. Among all one of the major advantage of biotechnology is to conserve the nature by replenishing its natural resources and saving energy in one form or the other.

Although modern biotechnology is a new concept yet the traditional have been used by humans for the past many decades. Products like yogurt, cheese, vinegar, alcoholic beverages etc are the result of this technology only. It is an effective tool for producing food, storing as well as preserving food.

Scope of Biotechnology
Scope of biotechnology is increasing with the more need for cheaper but the quality varieties. This includes

  • Genetic Engineering
  • Gene Therapy
  • Immunotechnologies
  • Tissue culture
  • Stem cell techniques
  • Enzyme engineering and technology
  • Photosynthetic efficiency
  • New DNA technologies
  • Plant-based drugs
  • Rational drug design

The main branch of this study is Genetic Engineering that is done on plants, animals (especially marine animals) and microbes. In this the DNA is transformed so that animal, plant or microbe start doing the things that are expected. Numerous drugs and vaccines are produced by genetically modified microbes. This include insulin, erythropoietin, and hepatitis-B vaccine. Some of the plants are so modified that they produce their own pesticide and resistant to weedicides.

Then Gene Therapy is applied to the human beings who suffer from any genetic disorder. By applying this they can lead a normal life.

Both plant and animal cells are subjected to Tissue Culture. A plant can be grown from a single cell in a lab through tissue culture. Tissue culture is actually used for micro propagation of exotic material and used to produce useful compounds.

Also some plants with biotechnology gets the photosynthetic efficiency through which they start producing more biomass from the same amount of light and other associated things.

Biotechnology is seeing major growth in India and so there are great number of biotechnology jobs in India. There is a great network of research laboratories in India along with rich agriculture, biodiversity, abundant sunshine with skilled and trained manpower. As it is quiet a new field yet there are many hidden and stored scopes of biotechnology in India that are yet to be explored.

All about Overseas Jobs

Overseas jobs are not so easy to get as it seems. You need to prepare every thing from documents to your professional skills and overall personality. Although preparation and getting these jobs is difficult but search for overseas jobs these days has become quiet easy as almost all recruiters publish their requirements online in their company's portal or collectively in job portals. So you can search for these jobs online. Also it has been found that most of the people rely on websites rather than going to recruitment agency to find these jobs. And just one-fifth of the job seekers check the jobs in international newspapers.

Once you are through with this thing, check out the next step that is to impress the selector or recruiter. As you are not alone who is dreaming big and finding these jobs so you will have to be very smart in presenting your self. Give yourself an edge over others.

Your letter of applications should be well-written. The curriculum vitae or resume should be clear and very neatly filled. Along with this if the application requires recent photograph then it should be very professional and you must have the photo copies of all your educational degree with you. Spend productive time in making and writing your job application.

Submit this application with overseas job recruiters. They will screen your application and once your application is screened you will get an interview call. In certain companies clearing written test is compulsory and in some it is the voice and accent round that is mandatory. The actual requirement depends upon the project and the profile. Also in some cases the recruiters take the initial interview and if you clear that you are asked to sit for company's interview.

In actual selection your interview, documentation, reference and experience matters.

Most of the process for overseas recruitments by the big organizations has know been outsourced to reduce the cost and to improve the quality. This is also called recruitment process outsourcing (RPO).

The major problem in overseas recruitment is the low rate of labour market mobility. But the motivation behind people who want to travel outside their country for work is the broadened experience, career development with better salary and additional perks.
