So.

Currently I'm a college freshman, intending to major in bioengineering. I'm looking to work somewhere interesting this summer, preferably in the Boston area, but I'd be willing to relocate anywhere. Right now I have a "maybe" from Boston Scientific and a "maybe" from a professor doing oyster research out in the Pamlico Sound (near the outer banks of NC). I wouldn't mind working in a lab or R&D place somewhere, even if it is grunt work.

If you were a college freshman, where would you work? Any ideas as to what I should do?

I stayed and did summer classes, and worked on campus.

Have fun though and enjoy yourself though. Summer is a time to relax from the regular stress.

Hey goo:

You're young and unattached so go discover. Lots of students with interests in Bio ****(anything) apply through the National Park Service and US Forest Service for internships in lab work and field work. The pay is not that great, but, since you're willing to travel you might get some terrific experience and see a part of the country that you would otherwise pass by.

There is a woman locally who started out in New York City, later Connecticut growing up in a large family. Her father is a doctor and quite well to do. She attended College on the East Coast. As a result of an internship at Glacier National Park during her sophomore summer, she ended up taking a job there years later. Now she is married with 2 kids, three of her siblings live nearby, her father and mother have moved here and one of her brothers, a plastic surgeon, has quite a practice in Missoula, about 70 miles away.

--------------------
I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Intern at a hedge fund. Yeah, it's a sell out, but it;s the last sure path to wealth.
