Jobs Before Grad School

Postby ajrasmus » Sat Mar 02, 2013 12:51 pm

Hey guys,

Is anyone planning to do work this summer before starting grad school in the fall? What kind of work will you be doing?

I think I want to work at least part time but I know it's already pretty late to start thinking about this. And now that I'm done being an undergrad I know that a lot of opportunities I would be interested in (like REUs, research at my undergrad institution, etc.) are longer really available to me. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I managed to get an official 6 months research internship at a top tier department - hoping to make contacts and perhaps even a paper. This was by emailing professors directly to ask, so perhaps you can try that.

I am thinking about the same stuff, too.
I tried REU, but since I am graduating, there are only like 3 or 4 schools I can apply.
I tried to find an intern, same reason, company doesn't like me.
So hard

I've thought about that as well. I've had research jobs since high school though. It would be so weird going back to a job scooping ice cream over the summer.

You should look into some teaching jobs. There's lots of SAT-prep style jobs you can get, and they will be good practice for TAing. Plus most of them don't require any experience teaching, and they pay fairly well.
