Work experience?

  • #1
Ok, my major is applied math so I'm obviously going to end up in a scientific or statistical application based job latter on. Does having working experience that doesn't relate to jobs similar to the types aforementioned hinder my prospects later on? I'm thinking that I could get a job over the summer just for pocket change.( i.e jamba juice, tutor kids etc)

It would be better to get a related job, but what's more important is getting a good reference from your supervisors, IMO.

Even at a Jamba Juice, if your boss rates you as enthusiastic and a go-getter, that says a great deal about you as an employee.
