Hi all, I'm about to finish my first year of university and I need to find a job for the summer. I'd like a job that will give me good experience and will act as a nice resume booster for applying to graduate school. I'm really unsure of whether I should just stick to the typical college student job (waiting tables, God-forbid retail, etc.) or try to find a more medically-inclined job (i.e. lab work, working in a doctor/dentist's office). My question is.. how do I go about getting that kind of a job? I've read posts from people who basically just did grunt work in a dentist's office but got some great experience out of it, and I'm sure it'd look great when applying to dental school. (Also, nice pay, i.e. $10/hour or more would be great, but that's probably asking for a lot.) Should I just look up random dentists over the internet and just send out dozens of cover letters/resumes saying that I'm interested in dental school and would love an opportunity to work in their office/gain some experience? Or should I stick to looking at labs or retail/restaurant jobs and just do some shadowing on the side? I'm still unsure of whether or not I want to steer myself towards dental or medical school, but I've been leaning in the direction of dentistry. The job seems to fit me better, the hours and stress level are likely not as bad (compared to most physicians), and the friends that I've talked to about it have said they can see me as a dentist (for whatever that's worth! haha).
