I am a finance girl myself so I don’t have too much as far as advice goes but want you to know I’m in the same boat with not knowing what I want to do! As far as your path is concerned – I signed up awhile ago for my body to be donated to science research after I pass away. There are a few places (not sure if there are any in Texas) that do research. I know there is a place that basically leaves the bodies in the woods or reenacts different environments to see how corpses react (how fast they decay, etc.) to better determine time of death in the future. Seems creepy to a lot of people – I find it extremely fascinating but not to actually work in so I will donate my body when I’m done with it haha 🙂

Sounds fascinating…

I did a quick GOOGLE for you – Forensics – and as I am Canadian got an immediate hit on this Website

Canadian Society of Forensic Science = http://www.csfs.ca/eng/general-information/careers

It has a lot of interesting info (guessing there is probably a US equivalent too)

Lol, if you don’t have a fear of “dead bodies”… you might also want to look at becoming a Funeral Director / Undertaker.

Not as scientific or “glamourous” perhaps as someone working in Forensic Science / Criminology…

BUT it is a Career that is always there no matter what the economy does… it is transportable (every town / city has a Funeral Home).

Sadly, will grow in need in the next 40 years (as Baby Boomers die)… and provides a very needed, often overlooked service to the community

Something to think about.
