peacebyinches Posted December 11, 2011 Share Posted December 11, 2011 While I am not accepted to any schools for Fall 2012 yet (since its December still) I have been applying to a lot of schools and assuming one of the numerous programs I applied to accepts me, I will be going to graduate school (for psychology if it matters) next fall. My issue right now is that I am currently unemployed and my savings are running out quicker than I realize. I am desperate for some advice on what to do, my internet searches haven't helped much at all. I want to get a job, but am aware that it may not be in my best interest to get a "career-type" job since I would be leaving the job this next summer (in like 6 months or so). I also am adamant that I do not go into a minimum wage type job. I know it may sound conceited, but I am not going to do a demeaning, bottom rung, low pay job, having graduated college (with honors, good grades, a research internship etc...). I have already played that game. I worked as a manual labor stock-boy at Target for about 7 months, where my coworkers were mostly in high school or had no education, and my bosses were younger than me and never attended college. The job was basically hard physical labor, in between getting yelled at by customers. I really would like to get a research assistant type job, but is this a feasible goal since I would basically only be able to work there for a few months? I don't even care about the pay, I just want a source of income that doesn't involve being on my feet for 8 hours straight and being treated like I'm a moron. If any of you have been in a similar situation or have some advice for me, it would be immensely appreciated! zep and pinkrobot 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
