I worked at The Ohio State University part-time (More than a year)
It taught me quite a bit about how research is done at a college level, very flexible
Not many hours, not a good job to supplement other part time jobs
Met with the program leader and the professor that I would be assisting. There was very little else to do. Probably the most difficult part was discovering the program and going to find the people that could help me. I spoke with many professors until I located the program that had an open slot for me.
