Undergraduate Research Assistant

I liked the chance to do research within my major of cognitive science. It was wonderful to be able to do the research remotely too!

What I wish was different

Maybe more consistent research work from week to week.

Don't be afraid to just email professors if you're interested in their research! You don't necessarily need to have prior experience -- they often just want to see someone who is curious and really eager to learn. There's a lot of learning on the go too!

Research Intern

May 2019 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

I was doing real writing and contextualizing data using open-source history rather than usual academic sources - a lot of my work was based on gathering knowledge of broad historical political and economic conditions rather than gathering specific arguments from previous researchers. This allowed me substantial flexibility and allowed me to form theories of my own, instead of just combining previous opinions of 'more qualified' individuals.

It's important to not let the 9-5pm drain you so you can do the projects you're interested in outside of the workspace. It's also important to utilize spaces like the Fast Forward U building to separate course work, paid positions, and exploratory efforts.
