    I worked at The Ohio State University part-time (more than 3 years)


    The laboratory position was very beneficial in terms of seeking a future career in the pharmaceutical industry, such as positions in marketing or in a research laboratory.


    Working in a research laboratory is quite limited to the topics you can research and more time is put in than is compensated for.
