Hi everyone-- this is one of my first posts here but I've been stalking for a while. Thanks for all the past advice... here's my question: 1. I'm looking for any advice for obtaining an RA position, hopefully with a clinical / assessment component, in New York City starting around August or September 2008. I have a decent amount of RA experience under my belt and finished my psych bachelor's in 2006. I've never lived there before soooo, I'm a little confused about how to go about the job hunt. I've already scrolled a few online sites (monster.com, a few university/hospital HR sites, etc) without too much luck. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions about the best way to find a position. Is pounding the pavement upon my arrival the best way? 2. I'm a little nervous because I'll be applying to PhD/PsyD programs in the fall. It's true that a lot of RA spots request/require a 2 year commitment, right? What should I do about this? Thanks sooooooo much for any help/advice you can offer.
