If you can write, you can always try your hand in science writing.
There are a variety of options...univeristy and corporate PR jobs are
most plentiful, while science reporter jobs are harder to come by but
are available for people with good skills. Because you know micro, you
could specialize in that beat. Let me know if you want some
pointers...one place to start is the National Association of Science
Writers...nasw.org.
