Summer job

Discussion in 'Pre-Medical - MD' started by GatorWell, May 23, 2002.

  1. I have recently gotten a job at non-medical related area (bakery store). Do medical schools look upon the job as a plus during the application process. It's hard to keep up with classes and also work at the same time. Thanks.
     
  2. Thread continues after this sponsor message. SDN Members do not see this ad.

    Im sure medical schools would love to see you do something medically related during the summer, but to be realistic, these opportunities are rare. The ones that are easy to come by, like volunteering, dont pay well or dont pay at all. Medical schools realise that many people need to work and make real money to get by, and certainly dont frown upon it.

    i know it this idea might be sort of late for some of you...but I have been substitute teaching since I graduated april 27th, and the pay is good (~85$$/day) and its easy because there is no responsability except showing up. its not easy, but it can be fun at elementary and high schools, but not so much at middle schools where they throw things a lot!
    most school districts need subs and will hire you with 90+ credits of college (no teaching certificate).
    there might be summer school or something near you. or school might not end until later, but its short term and you dont need to be committed for long periods of time. they call you in the mornings (540am) for jobs and you can say no if you cant).
    just a thought :)
