I'm from Russia. I majored in biology(genetics), wrote a bachelor's diploma in the field of psychogenetics, and graduated with mean grade of roughly 4 out of 5. Back then some circumstances arose that prevented me from an academic career (including lack of biotech companies in my area), so I had to make do with an entry-level job. Biotech companies in Russia can afford to be picky and hire only experienced staff even for an entry-level position such as lab technicians. With a lot of people in the field looking for a job, and a few biotech companies, I don't have a lot of chances there.
I've heard that Russian diplomas in STEM fields are valued abroad, probably more than they are in Russia; that brings me here. What are my chances of finding positions as a junior lab member, lab technician, etc. in a biology-related field overseas with my higher education diploma and practical experience (achieved during two years of lab work in the university)? What skills/qualifications do I need to get to improve my chances? What direction would you suggest to start my research on possible employers? Could you give me any further tips on career track?
