But when I was officially on the job market, I didn’t see a ton of science communication jobs posted. And when I did, I found out that employers wanted communications professionals interested in science rather than science professionals with a social media presence.

Also a lot of people don’t realize that most science communicators are freelance, so they don’t have permanent jobs. 

In this episode, I talk all about my experience attempting to get a job in science communication and how I eventually decided to do it on my own. 

You’ll learn about the ways that you can start your own business in science communication and the major ways you can make money doing it.
