Is there anything she can do to broaden the job market for herself?

We dont have, I think, any medical manufacturing companies in NY. We have labs, hospitals, clinics, and the like.

What would you guys say would be the best course of action to get use from the degree?

If you're curious about who would hire in your area, go to Monster.com or the like and do a search for jobs that hire biomedical engineers.

Hope this helps...

This is definitely true - adcoms like the people who differentiated themselves through liberal arts, business, etc. I think the engineering side gives med students a lot more problem solving skills, as well as a good basis for physiology.

Like I said, at our school, a third went to each. Most of the ones in my class who didn't do grad or med have gotten jobs in BME straight out of the gate, if not before.

I see that not much has changed in the field. A biomedical engineering degree is essentially learning a mishmash of sciences, without becoming an expert in any. I graduated with a bachelors in bioengineering in 2002. Very few jobs specify bioengineers or biomedical engineers. It was very difficult for me to find a job, especially since I didn't want to go to grad school where I would have specialized. When I finally found a job it wasn't what I initially wanted, but each job position essentially built on the other until I could do something i liked. I started working as a laboratory associate, then QC work at a medical device company, to automation work / R&D at my current biotech company.

The best bet is to focus on biotech companies and pharmaceuticals. Look for positions such as research associate, laboratory associate, or even jr level engineers (mech, ee, etc.). The hardest part is getting your foot in the door. good luck.
