You ever wonder what it’s like to work at your college full-time? How does it feel to spend your days helping the professor with the research? How does it feel to be cooking all your food?

I’m not surprised anymore because I’ve spent the last seven weeks as an editor assistant for a literary magazine called.

Come, as I shared what I’ve learned. Even if you don’t plan to go to college, I guarantee you will learn a thing or two things that you can apply to any future internship or work …

College is more political than you think, and I’m not talking about the student government. I’m talking about the departments. Every time I wanted to do something for my professor, I had to email three or four different departments …

One of my responsibilities included ensuring the security of the new computer for the magazine I was working on, and which was linked to the mail sending in Business Office, IT, the coordinator of the department and the chair of the department …

These are the things you probably don’t notice during the semester, but if you’re going to survive any internship (or work), you have to.

Because of the high cost ($200 a.

I was lucky my research was paid, so I didn’ t have to live entirely at the expense of my savings. I could, of course, be much more economical than I was, but I appreciate the good food … and the dop

For the first few weeks, the food of a typical day was as follows:

However, I have accepted the last three weeks inspired by some of the budget-byte chefs in the budget.

All I had to do was remove the lid and put it in the microwave for a few minutes. Healthy and light, especially if I had just worked it out (it’s right, I raise it) and I didn’ t feel ready.

I also opened up a local farmer’s market where I was able to get organic products and free eggs for the mast for a small part of the grocery store …

I’d say my groceries were average.

“Home is where one starts from.”

In contrast, this internship was.

But I realized that more than loneliness.And, of course, I’ve missed my family. I called home once a week and texted with my brother and my parents, but I realized it was the first summer I spent without them. The family is indeed one of the most important things, cliché as it may sound, and this internship gave me an idea of how important it will be.

My average working day was like this:.

  • 9AM-2PM: Relevant work during the day.
  • 2PM-4:30PM: Meeting with the Professor.
  • 4:30PM-5PM: End random tasks per day.
  • In general, my schedule was mine. While I got my job and checked my e-mail regularly, no matter where I worked. Compared to my last summer job at Walmart, I had.

    That was fun. If I wanted to hear it.

    If I wanted to work alongside a waterfall under a tree, I could …

    It definitely taught me the work I want to have, whether I’m done for myself or for the company. Freedom to work.

    If the only thought you have put into the future is that you would like to get a good job, then I encourage you to consider other more specific factors, such as.

    All this freedom was also a curse. Without direct observation of me for most of the day, I was free to look at Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, College Info Geek, and other similar websites, all I wanted. For many days, I have been trapped in a multitasking by editing the log submission, at the same time looking at random crap …

    This is one of the possible workday schedule errors. I paid the same amount for what was there and when I was working or not. More and more companies are finding ways to combat this temptation by forcing employees to account for their watches (

    I can see it as one of the calls to self-employment:

    I can see it as one of the calls to self-employment-you will choose from your work what you put in it, to a point, and, of course, more than a job, where you are just a fist in the clock (though, from what Thomas said, there is so much temptation to delay when you are self-employed) ..

    “I’m not a teacher, I’m a prowler.”

    The best part of my internship is for an experienced professor. Until last semester, I was sure I wanted to be a professor and one day to be a professor. Having learned more about.

    Just sitting next to him while he was editing someone’s work, arguing with him about the review, and seeing what was needed to get a big publication was priceless …

    Whatever your promising field is, find a way to intern it, ideally in the situation you get.

    Seeing that everyday life, as a professor, convinced me that I would rather be dealing with a card that allows me more freedom of location and requires me to borrow less bureaucracy and administrative work, but I learned a lot about what it’s like to plan and teach the class, the information that I will do.

    If you can get any work in your school, especially when you work in close cooperation with an experienced employee or teacher.

    One of my favorite parts of my internship was familiar with my professor out of class. I was fortunate to be present in a small arts college, where it is not uncommon to have dinner at the professor’s house or to see one of them all over the city, but even then my interaction was mostly limited to hours of occupation and office hours …

    “The professors have a life, you know.”

    Every college professor whose students think they’re vampires, who sleep in their office.Outside of our meetings, I had to have dinner at his home (nothing in the home cooked meal), meet his family, and even look at his pets for the weekend while he was out of town …

    I’m not saying that you’re going to do these specific things if you work for a professor or an intern in college, but I know that you’ll know that the people who teach you, rip off your papers and answer your two e-mails are real people, people with hobbies, families, and

    I hope you’ve learned a few things that will help you, whether it’s an internship or a hunt for the next summer (it’s never too early to start looking). Did either of you work for the professor or intern at your college? What did you find out? You can split it in the comments …
