Abstract

Many young students dream about a career working with marine mammals. Although marine mammal jobs are limited and highly competitive, there are several ways to obtaining them. But, there is no magic formula to pursue a career in marine mammal science. We describe various skill sets and experiences that can improve your chances. Not the least, it is important to actively work towards your career goals and believe in your strengths. We interview marine mammal researchers to inspire students to follow their passion and pursue a career in natural sciences, which may lead to work on marine mammals. In times of climate change, pollution, habitat and biodiversity loss, there is a huge need for students interested in science, technology, biology, engineering and mathematics, to provoke a general change for the better.
