Since you have completed M.Sc in biochemistry you can work in any of the Biotechnology or Pharmaceutical Company as Research associate. For fresher pay package is little low and job availability depends on the institute from which you have done your PG. Food industry does not offers much jobs as compared to Pharma/Biotech sector, mainly microbiologist are employed there. To survive in this field and for getting promotions in research jobs PhD is must. After completing M.Tech in Biotechnology you have to again look for the PhD and if you are not interested in research field don’t prepare for CSIR, UGC-NET or for GATE. You can look for M.Tech in Bioinformatics because in bioinformatics good jobs are available after M.Tech, but M .Tech should be from good institute or if you are interested in management you can go for MBA.
