You can choose to be specific, or if you don't want to, you can just give a generalised answer.

Well, my career is longer than most here. I am older than many here. I am a molecular biologist but I currently have my own company that trades in biotech stocks and advises those looking to acquire biotech companies. I got my PhD back in 1988 and worked initially in bacterial genetics studying gene regulation. I later moved into mice, studying site specific recombination and gene regulation in mammals. Throughout my career I have studied a variety of topics including straight gene introduction to the molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis.
I moved onto the business side of the field, working for a pharmaceutical company where I initially ran a lab but eventually ran a marketing group. I have worked for a number of pharmaceutical companies and have lived in a variety of companies. My last role was as VP for an entire business unit.
I decided that I didn't like working for someone else and began to trade for a living, building my company from a one man operation into something larger. It is very demanding work, involving understanding the future trends in research as well as the current climate of the biotech business.
I know that is a long winded answer, but it has been a long career.1
