    Jobs after MSc in Microbiology?

    Hi, I am a post graduate in M.Sc microbiology (2008 pass out). After my M.Sc i joined a BPO as i dint had proper guidance and wanted to earn money for my family. Now its been 3 years, i am earning good money but still i feel my M.Sc went in vain so i want to do something related to my Subject. I am interested in management work, hence i want to know if we have any such job requirement in this field. It would be great if i could utilize my subject knowledge and work experience to get a better job. Please advice me some job profile or training that would help me to get a efficient job matching my profile. Thanks!
