"I knew that I enjoyed doing science and working with other scientists on various and challenging projects but I also knew that an academic career path was not the best fit for me.  With my skills, background and interests in mind, I investigated various science related career paths including teaching, science writing and even consulting but in the end decided that the biotechnology industry provided the best fit for my skills, background and interest in both doing and communicating challenging science. This career path is different than what I expected I might be doing after grad school but I'm excited to be moving my career in this direction.
