What I liked

I learned a new programming language, python, and significantly improved my programming skills. I also applied the knowledge I learned in my classes in a research environment.

I wish I had time to complete my project, as the summer term ended before the proejct was finished.

Advice

I would say to know what skills you need for your research job and what skills you can learn after you get the job.

Undergraduate Research Assistant

February 2019 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

I liked that I had the opportunity to gain research experience in the field. Also I liked working with wild mice and learning about invasive species.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had a more consistent schedule over the summer but animal trapping requires a flexible schedule.

Advice

One piece of advice I have about this experience is to be patient with field work because things don't always go as planned when you're conducting research in the field.

Diamond Research Scholar

May 2019 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

I loved being able to do independent research on my own schedule. Having the ability to further my academic interests with the support of the University was an extremely bountiful opportunity.

What I wish was different

There is very little I would have changed! Although, sometimes it’s very nice to have a boss to keep you motivated to work. It’s hard to self-motivate sometimes!

Advice

It’s very important when conducting your own research that you are honest with yourself regarding your own capabilities. More importantly, you need to set a schedule for yourself.
