Is a wildlife biology PhD or Master's degree useless? UNBIASED Pros & Cons

Is a master's degree or a PhD worth it in the field of biology, ecology, environmental science, and wildlife biology? The answer: sometimes. Watch to the end to find out which situations I recommend that you get an advanced degree for, and when it might not be necessary. disclaimer: I have been rejected from every grad school I applied to so I don’t have first hand knowledge of what it’s like to job search with every level of education, but I do know what it’s like to job search with only a bachelors. Grad students, feel free to chime in with your thoughts!
