As a Bacteriologist you conduct laboratory experiments to determine the presence, structure, and function of bacteria in a physical sample. You perform extensive research to learn about the nature of certain types of bacteria. As a Bacteriologist you may work in a clinical setting, helping physicians make proper diagnoses and prescribe the correct treatments or in a scientific research laboratory conducting independent research on different bacterial substances.

A few skills needed to be a successful Bacteriologist is your ability to analyze and process information, use scientific rules and methods to solve problems and strong understanding of math, chemistry and biology. A bachelor's degree is a typical requirement for bacteriologists and a Ph.D. is necessary in order to conduct independent research or work through a university.

To prepare for your interview you'll want to reach out to your network and even people working within the company you are applying to. Be prepared to speak about your education, any published writing and past work history. Because your interviewer can see your education and accomplishment on your resume, you'll want to practice your behavior based questions. Be able to tell the interviewer what role you've held on a team, how quickly you make decisions and your strengths and weaknesses.
