Physical Chemistry Researcher

June - August 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I enjoyed the opportunity to get hands on experience in physical chemistry which is something I am considering specializing in during graduate school.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been more oversight and direct interaction with the head of my lab group instead of just working with the graduate student.

Advice

Always chase down every opportunity. Don't just passively wait for something to fall in your lap. This goes for both finding career/internship/research opportunities and for when you actually land the job. There will be times where you have to choose between staying in and watching Netflix, or going out and attending that educational seminar or career/grad prep workshop. Always choose the unique opportunities.

More freedom with Master's programs can be good or bad depending on how you use that time. Don't fall into the trap of becoming unproductive.
