I work as an EMT in the local ER. It's a level 2 trauma center so some pretty cool stuff comes our way. Fun job, but overnight shifts are killer!

Pathology Assistant...fun stuff.

Bart, I'd recommend doing research with a faculty member at your school. You might be able to get your work published too.

Americorp Internship with the Red Cross. You get do some pretty school stuff like respond to fire and go out on national disasters. I went down to Gustav for 2 weeks to work in a shelter. It was cool because my boss let me take days off for interviews and was in my hometown.

Tried to get a job in biotech or research as a lab tech or anything related to my field, sent out my resume to tons & tons of places, but in this economy, as my professor said, even PhD's are willing to work for lower wages and doing minor tasks. It sucks!!
So I'm working as a promotional model to be honest it has kept be busy full time and I definitely can't complain.
But I still volunteer at my undergrad's research facility doing research a few time a week.
I wish I could get a full time at a "real" job even if they pay wasn't going to be as good.... :(

Assistant Microbiologist at Abbott Nutrition ;-) Great job, almost a shame (almost..) to leave it for dental school. Great pay, benefits, but 3rd shift. Testing baby formula, machinery, and raw ingredients for microbial contamination.

I am doing research at my top choice school which i just got accepted to. :) My boss totally helped me out with rec letters and the whole application cycle. I am glad that I am gonna stay here and work with him for next 4 more yearssssss. I get to make some extra cash and get some papers published before starting dental school. And I am gonna take classes that are taught by him and other faculties that I know as a dental student. so nice to work at a dental school that I will be attending next year! So freaking excited for next year!
