    Former Intern - Undergraduate Researcher in Riverside, CA

    I worked at UC Riverside as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    The Doctoral candidate I worked under was very nice and supportive. She is very intelligent and was helpful inside and outside of the undergraduate research assistant.

    Cons

    I received 4 units, so I had to put in 16 hours a week, which was an overload at the time because I took four classes. But it helped me with time management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was great! I am thankful I had the opportunity to hold this position and be a part of. It was something I gained experience and knowledge from and was able to put on my resume. Although, it was unpaid, I received units, which was very helpful towards the end of my senior year to graduate on time! :-)
