Can someone tell me how RA gigs work?
« on: February 03, 2009, 10:18:31 PM »
If I am unable to secure anything during OCI, there is one professor that I would really enjoy working for this summer. Can anyone tell me how that works? Do I contact the professor? Do they contact students they want? Thanks for any help.

Well, it's a lot like stabbing a possum to death with a makeshift axe/machete.  I hope that helps.

Here, professors post jobs sometimes, or you can just email the professor. The advantage of the second approach is the professor won't have twenty people applying--it will just be you.

That said, I agree with the possum/axe thing.
