Question Working For The CDC?

Hi! Can anyone give me some insight into working for the CDC?
Would they hire me as a medical laboratory technician or a graduate with a BS in clinical research (emphasis on pharmaceuticals)? I have done much research on the CDC website, and have found no mention of either of these degrees being needed...however, I really would love to do research for them someday. I did read the few threads on here about the CDC, and most were from civilian contractors, not actual government employees, such as biologists or scientists.
I would love any general information about the area, also. DH will be leaving the Marine Corps soon and we plan to move to the area.
Thank you so much for any and all help! : )

I don't have any FYI or insight into employment with the CDC. I'm certain they have multiple applicants for each position. For background on the CDC you might find something at this site for CDC employees. The AJC/Atlanta paper has done many articles on the CDC in the past few years.>>>

The CDC is located in the Druid Hills area of NE Atlanta near Emory University.

Your best bet to get any job at the CDC is to know someone. While some external candidates who do not know any one get hired occasionally, usually they do if their skills are coveted and hard to find. If you have at least a Bachelor's degree, it will help you tremendously to get on at the CDC. My advice is to apply to whatever you can, to get your foot in the door.

Did you ever get your job at the CDC? I'm also looking to relocate and get a job at the CDC?
