  1. Hi! so I just started my job as a new SLPA, working with kids at a preschool.. They gave me cases so I started calling parents and give start dates to the coordinator. I’d like to know, what do I say to parents? What things do I discuss? How do I properly introduce myself? “Hi Im the SLPA, calling from ‘insert business name’ and I like to schedule an appointment”? Thanks
  2. Hello I come from India, and I'm final year undergraduate student in political science honors. I have admission at Hertie School in Master in public policy. I have a 35% waiver. However, the course fee is extravagant still. As I will be taking a loan IF I plan to go to Berlin, I am very much concerned about its repayment. So, what do you think says the Berlin job market for MPP international students? Any additional information about Hertie will help me make this choice!
  3. Currently admitted/ prospective or alumni of Evans, what has been your impression of Evans for MPA degree? The corses, career opportunities? I am highly interested in policy making/analysis and I feel like Seattle is not an ideal place for that. So who reputed and prestigious is Evans name, would it help me in my job hunt? Please let me know about your impression and experiences in Evans. I have to decided between GPS, Harris (15k fuding ) and Evans and it is increasingly getting stressful! Thank you
  4. I’m new to this so I hope it’s in the right spot but anyways I started a temp to hire position three months ago under the premise I was going to get hired while applying to PhD programs. Long story short, my employer is now saying that they may not actually hire anyone (everyone in my department is currently on the temp to hire track), but I’ve accepted an offer to a school out of state, far out of state. School is more than five months away. Should I tell my employer that I’m leaving now with the chance of never getting hired in the interim or wait until a month out so I can train my rep
  5. Hey everyone. I recently graduated this semester. My plan is to work for two years in order to save up money for a masters program. Right now I have my sight set on the masters program at University of Houston in ME/Aerospace Engineering. However, I am in a bit of a predicament. I graduated with a BS in physics from the University of Texas at Austin. My GPA was low. I got a 2.94 gpa on 63 credit hours. I only had 63 credit hours since I transferred from the University of Texas at San Antonio. My GPA there was a 3.78 on almost 80 hours. However, when you combine the GPAs, it comes out to 3.42.
  6. Hi all, I have the following credentials: Undergrad degree from Canadian University (in progress) Work experience relevant to my field (co-op) Canadian citizenship I want to do a Ph.D. right after my bachelor's degree. Since this is rare in Canada, I was looking at some American universities for their Ph.D programs. Hence, I was wondering, will a USA Ph.D. receive the same equivalency as a Canadian Ph.D. in the Canadian job market? I ask this because I noticed that many students with a Ph.D. from overseas (such as Asia) often find it hard to get a job here because th
  7. I have a M.S. degree in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience. For the better part of the year, i have yet to find a job in this field, better yet, Im having issues with finding a job at all. What are my job opportunities with this degree? I want to get into neuromarketing but I dont know how to go about doing that. I may have an upcoming teaching position at my old university however that's not something I would want to do for a long time. The other options I have are to go back to school in either counseling or I/o psychology. I just want to know what i should be doing.
  8. Hi Grad Cafe, I've been selected as a top 3 candidate for full time position in an English department at a community college. I have a final interview with the college president and the dean in a few weeks. Any tips on how to prepare for this? They didn't provide any extra info. I did a teaching demonstration and 60 minutes worth of question and answers in the initial interview. Like many people in the field, I'm feeling a bit desperate for this. It's my only successful application, and I'm terrified of my future if I don't get the job. Thanks for any help!
  9. I have an internship that will leave me about 5 weeks to do something else, and I'm hoping to find something during that short time to do. I'm in law school, with broad interests.
  10. As the title suggests, how do I do it? I already know when I'm going to quit (end of May. Moving to my graduate school state in June. Giving them a month to find someone to replace me). The issue is how do I do it? If I tell them that I'm going to graduate school, they'll probably feel betrayed because I've only worked there for a year and had every intention of quitting if I got accepted (I work as a Paralegal in a law firm). I would tell them sooner, but then there's the off-chance that I immediately get fired, which I wouldn't blame them for. How have people told their employ
  11. I am having trouble deciding between a few school's Biomedical Science PhD programs and would appreciate any insights people may have about these programs relative to each other: UW-Seattle Northwestern DGP U of Michigan PIBS Somethings I am curious about are Placement after graduation Research quality and breadth I am not completely sure what I want to study but am interested in virology, microbiome research, and genomics Environment and culture of program Interaction with and quality of other students Reputation/Quality of life
  12. Hey everyone, I made a post earlier regarding WFU's masters program in particular, but I wanted to make a thread about the general experience of what people have chosen to do when they're not going to a PhD straight from undergrad. I'm new here so I'm still learning the posting etiquette on gradcafe, but I apologize if this topic is too closely related to the other thread. I feel that this is a different question though, whereas the other thread was about WFU specifically. Hopefully this is OK. Basically, I was wondering what people's experiences have been with doing a non-PhD grad progra
  13. Hi, I'm in my second semester as a Ph.D. student in Comparative Literature. I know some people might think that it's too early for me to start worrying about what to do to get hired, others might be thinking that it's never too early, others might be saying "you're a comparative lit. major, there are no jobs" lol, but please just stick with me a moment. I'm looking for advice on how I can become a more competitive applicant when applying for assistant professor jobs (and similar jobs) after I finish my Ph.D. I'm technically first-generation college student (my parents dropped out of coll
  14. Hi, everyone! I am an international student applying for 18fall Ph.D. in computer science programs in US. Now I've applied for 15 universities but only two of them are in California (i.e. UCR and UCSD). Here is my list of choices: Lotteries: CMU and U of Washington Top tier: GATech, UCSD, Wisconsin-Madison, UTexas Austin Realistic choices: NEU, Stony Brook, PSU, UCR, UVa, UMN Safe schools: George Mason, W&M College, UTexas Dallas So I made up these choices based on my backgrounds as well as the fact that the competition on PHD positions is fierce especially for this year. I
  15. I want to leave my PhD program and am in the process of looking for jobs. I am wondering how to report the "future graduation" date, while trying to avoid confusion and having my application outright rejected by recruiters.
  16. Hi everyone, I am about to go to the US for a masters in chemistry. My intention is to apply to a PhD program after my MS degree is awarded, but I was wondering about the possibility of working before continuing to a doctoral program. As an international student, what would be my chances of getting hired by any company? I know that companies try to avoid hiring foreign workers since the visa and/or residency permits are costly to obtain. But has anyone here been hired under these circumstances? How was your experience? Please share stories or comments that you consider to be useful for
  17. Which one should i choose for MS CS: Rutgers, New Brunswick, NJ North Carolina State University,NC Which one has better internship and job opportunities??
  18. I'm about to finish college (Bachelor's in Computer Science) and I've been thinking about applying for a master's degree. I got really good grades in my first year of college, I was in the top 5% students, but during my second and third year I worked full time as a software developer so my grades dropped quite a bit (receiving mostly unremarkable and even some poor grades in my second year). That is in great part due to my attendance, since for most of the subjects that I've had, your activity throughout the year influenced the final grade. I've been thinking that I can offer an explanation re
  19. Hey everyone! I'll be attending BC in the fall to get my MSW. I'm very excited because it means taking out minimal loans as long as I find a part time job. I'm not worried about being able to juggle school work and class work (as I am juggling 35 hours a week at a preschool, 10 at a crisis hotline, an internship and 9 academic credits currently). However, I currently work in a field that is loosely related to social work as I'm working with children. I would most prefer to work in a field that is also related during my masters program in Boston, but it doesn't seem like child care will be
  20. Hi you guys, I'm preparing for the next year cos the application results are not ideal. I want to continue doing research to accumulate experience, but at the same time, I have to work to support myself. So I'm thinking about full time or part time lab manager or RA position. But I don't know where I can find relevant information.
  21. Applicants are being sought for a half-time or full-time Research Coordinator position in the WELL Center (an expansion of the Laboratory for Innovations in Health-Related Behavior Change) at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, under the direction of Dr. Evan Forman. Drs. Forman, Butryn, and Juarascio are conducting multiple NIH-funded clinical trials in the areas of (1) using innovative approaches to improve diet, health and weight, including new forms of behavioral treatment; (2) computerized "brain training" neurocognitive trainings; and (3) smartphone app-based machine
  22. Hey everyone, I'm having a little dilemma about whether to enroll in a PhD program or not. In some ways I believe I must and in other ways I am wondering if I really need to do it. It's just such a long road that I don't want to waste time on if I don't need to. So here is my background: I have a BS in chemistry from a very good public US university. I performed undergraduate research there for about 1.5 years but didn't really accomplish anything significant (was just to get exposed). After my junior year, I did a summer research fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering
  23. I have read on several websites that the WGS departments nationwide are still expanding and hiring. Can anybody provide some background information on the origins and histories of WGS departments? To what extent does this claim holds true? How possible for a WGS phd focusing on sociology approach to secure a position in sociology departments?

  25. Hey everyone. I've got a question for those of you who are already doing your phd, finished, or professors, etc. So I've just graduated with a degree in politics, and I'm changing my field to comparative literature or english or media studies (Brown). There are a few schools in the US that I find ideal for my studies and interests. They got top scholars in the field and so on. Ok so my problem is that I got a gf who wants to move with me and I'm not American and neither is she so we'll need visas. But America doesn't allow your dependent to come and work there so she can't really come wit
