"So far, my favorite thing about my job is conducting testing on the total cell counts of probiotic products. This is a project that my company has been trying to introduce for quite some time and I am taking the lead in conducting the tests with guidance from the microbiologist supervisor. In addition, being able to apply my degree towards my job almost immediately after graduation has helped with the transition from student to employee."
