If you like Bioinformatics then I say go for it, my friend has recently finished her phD in Bioinformatics and she is in huge demand, especially by companies and research teams in Europe, I don't know about america. She says the world is screaming out for new bioinformatics graduates.

Let's not forget that your friend has a ph.D. degree. With that kind of education level, I think it's easy to get a job...
It's more difficult if you only have a bachelor or master

It does help. but it depends what its on and what university its from. It really helps if you get a pHd from a good uni.

Agreed. And if you have a PhD in paleontology i think it will be hard to find a job. Even if it is from Harvard

In china,bioinformatics, i think it will be easy to find a job.if you can do programme(eg.bioperl) or computational biology and you have backgound of biology.no matter what is a bachelor or master or phD.but it's not a high paying salary jobs look like Europe or USA.but it's in china.
