Although some forensic graduates faced some difficulties in my country, many people still pursue the path of forensic.
Thanks to various investigation TV series and movies (especially CSI), becoming a forensic scientist is a dream job of many people. By collecting and analyze physical evidence, such as fingerprints, blood, semen, saliva, etc., forensic scientists can use scientifically analyzed evidence to accuse a person’s guilt or innocence in court. You do not need to have the healing power to save the cheerleader, and save the world. You can easily save the world by nailing down the criminals with all the evidence they leave in the crime scene.
The average annual salaries for forensic scientists in United States are between $35,000 and $50,000. Forensic scientists work in laboratories and collecting evidences in crime spots, hence they are not required to have contact with any criminals. This minimized their risk being hurt by the criminals during the crime investigation. Most forensic scientists are employed by government, which means there is a high job security (however the job is limited due to the funding pressure).
