Jonathan’s Answer

The answer could vary on what you mean by time. In reference to working as an undergrad, I’ll share my experience. As an undergrad and a graduate, I always had a job. Though I was active on campus, there were many events I had to miss out on because of my job. What I failed to realize was that I will have the rest of my life to work. If I could go back and do it again, I would work in the summer and winter breaks as an intern in the field I wanted to start a career in and be sure to network and stay in touch with people I meet. Through my networking, I will try and find out if there are any early talent programs that may interest me so that I could apply for those at the end of my junior year or start of my senior year.

Now if by time you mean when is the best time to look for a bew job, then that’s a different story. If you are not happy with the work you are doing, not just because your boss is “mean”, than it maybe time to start looking for a new job. You will always be happy doing the work you love doing and will not feel like a job.

It is always great to try getting additional income and learn through real work experience. You will feel the difference between you had worked before compared to study only and straight out of college. If you are going to graduate this summer, you should start prepare your resume, talk to your counselor, and start applying. The best way to apply for jobs through school. This gives you a better competitive edge. If you are trying to get a part time job while at school, you can always apply. Right now, we are facing pandemic and high number of cases, it may not be ideal. However, once vaccine has greatly rolled out to the population and things go back to normal, it is definitely an opportunity there. If you are looking for internship, the key is to network with companies and people. Then you apply through school as well as passing your resume to people you know. Having an internship will help you determine whether the field you have chosen to study is for you and you like to work there over next 10 years or so. It helps you to gain experience and acquire social skills that are very different than what you learn from textbook.

If you are close to graduation from any school and or are looking for another job, Now is the time to start looking. Always allow yourself enough time to get your information together and then start submitting resumes and cover letters. Make sure that if changing jobs you give the 2 weeks notice required by most companies.

Thank you so much! Daniella P.
