Sizing up job prospects for biology degree

Q. I am working on my associate’s degree in biology. I was going to pursue my bachelor’s, however, I am afraid that I will not find a good job because of all the rumors I’ve heard about this degree. Eventually, I want to pursue a higher degree, but wanted advice as to what to do next. Should I keep going with a bachelor’s degree, or should I major in something else, like nursing or something specific? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A. It is probably better to rely on facts, rather than rumors, about the job prospects for a biology major.
