    [–] Doubts of BS in Bioengineering? TheNoobtologist 4 points ago in bioengineering

    The only problem with doing a BS in BioE is that it’s not going to fast track you toward a particular subspecialty within the field. You’ll need to narrow down what you want to do and build those skills if you want to have luck with the job market.

    [–] Bye-Bye USA, Apple Legend Steve Wozniak Heads to Malta to Develop New Blockchain TheNoobtologist 1 points ago in CryptoCurrency

    Bitcoin is a protocol and more analogous to TCP/UDP than an ISP. And FYI the internet still works on TCP/UDP.

    [–] When a scammer tried to scam you, but you scammed him instead. TheNoobtologist 19 points ago in Bitcoin

    Don’t feel bad for him (or her). These people are a scourge that prey on the weak and vulnerable.

    [–] Healthcare Data Analyst TheNoobtologist 1 points ago in datascience

    School set me up with a solid foundation. But I’ve learned quite a bit on the job.

    [–] Healthcare Data Analyst TheNoobtologist 3 points ago in datascience

    It requires both creativity and establishing a routine. But it comes with practice. I wouldn’t worry about what you can do right now. Just focus on learning and getting better.

    [–] Healthcare Data Analyst TheNoobtologist 4 points ago in datascience

    I work in health care analytics. It’s a lot of health econ and outcomes. Using claims databases, EHR records, etc. I would recommend learning SQL and Python.

    [–] Has anyone risked FIRE to start your own business? TheNoobtologist 3 points ago in financialindependence

    Most successful businesses have CEOs in their forties. The young Silicon Valley founder is not representative of the entrepreneurs at large.

    Are you boys feeling the market yet?

    [–] Asking Salary TheNoobtologist 3 points ago in biotech

    I see your points, I just disagree that asking for 85k would spoil a relationship. I know plenty of people who started at 85k+ and a few that started well over 100k who ventured outside biotech.

    [–] lmao my life is a joke TheNoobtologist 8 points ago in bioengineering

    Key words should be skills or a more specific area of interest. You can also add boolean operators to help refine your search, although not every site has this feature.

    E.g.

    'medical devices' AND ('computer aided design' OR 'CAD')

    ('medical devices' OR 'pharmaceutical') AND ('data analysis' OR 'python' OR 'matlab')

    [–] Any other BEs who went to Biostats? TheNoobtologist 1 points ago in bioengineering

    Pretty cool, definitely a good field to be in!

    [–] Any other BEs who went to Biostats? TheNoobtologist 1 points ago in bioengineering

    I did data science, which is similar but more heavy on programming. Biostats traditionally is involved with clinical trial design.

    [–] lmao my life is a joke TheNoobtologist 5 points ago in bioengineering

    As others have noted, these are not BME jobs that a BME should be looking for. If you’re searching for bioengineering or biomedical engineering on your job search as key words, you’re doing it wrong. Most jobs that are optimal for BME won’t list them as a preferred major.

    [–] 31 years old $160K in debt from student loans with a bullshit degree making $15/hr (I need advice) TheNoobtologist 1 points ago in personalfinance

    Totally agree, but I could see people crying out that only the wealthy can afford college if you were to remove the government from backing loans, ie someone would politicize it for ulterior motives. Ironically, you can still make that argument that only the wealthy can afford college. I think the problem is more of a systemic.

    Universities waste a ton of money on administrative costs, new buildings/luxuries to attract students, high salaries for senior admins, and offer degrees that are not likely to produce a return on investment. Also, the schools that receive the most donations are often the ones that need them least.

    [–] Asking Salary TheNoobtologist 3 points ago in biotech

    Scientist positions in biotech are historically underpaid. But the labor market is the tightest it’s been in 50 years. What’s the worst that can happen if you ask for 85k?

    [–] Asking Salary TheNoobtologist 3 points ago in biotech

    Don’t be afraid to ask for that much. 85,000 is not unreasonable.

    [–] Fidelity and Baakt? TheNoobtologist 1 points ago in Bitcoin

    Sounds like a good way to get fired

    [–] Technology Requirement TheNoobtologist 1 points ago in biotech

    Bioinformatics is a specific sub field with biotech. As for health care analytics, there’s a lot more than just bioinformatics.

    Or adderall/ritalin. How many software engineers have ADHD?
