What country are you in? What science do you like the most?
There are thousands of jobs in science! Everything from teaching science to experimental physics to product development.
For example, I study biotechnology. Biotechnologists create drugs for medicine, and do genetic research, and use bacteria to produce drugs like insulin, and design GM foods, and do bioremediation… there are millions of different jobs in biotechnology. Biotechnology is a single subset of biology, which is a single branch of science.
At the point you are in your education, my advice would be: do whatever is the most fun. Keep your grades up and take sciences that interest you the most, and do the same in university. Having “a job in science” is like having “a job in retail” — it’s rather broad. If you do that then, wherever you end up, you’ll be doing something you like. And unless you decide to go into something like forensic science, there should be a fair amount of job openings with most major sciences.
