Summer Jobs

  1. Apr 27, 2008 #1
    Any suggestions for summer jobs? Guess its kinda hard to go from physics to flipping burgers. I have a part time job as a tutor at the college, but that doesn't really pay the rent.

    If you already have you BA in physics, couldn't you find a job working as a lab technician . That kind of job is more frugal than flipping burgers.

    It's not too late to get a research position at a local college or university. Ask around to see if the professors would be willing to pay you with grant money. That's how I got my first research position after freshman year of college, just by asking right before summer.

    Or see if you can supplement your college tutoring by getting hired as a private tutor (which can be even better – no taxes).
