You're majoring in psychology at UC Berkeley and have 2 summer internship choices. You can work in the purchasing department at Safeway for $17/hr. Or you can work in predictive research at Google without pay. Which do you choose?
one of the best opportunities to get a heads up in psychology is to deal w/as many different types of personalities on a day-to-day basis. You see the good, bad & ugly of all & are able to study the full spectrum of society in a area that all use.
Sort of depends on your financial situation and what you already have on your resume.
Google will look better on a resume; plus, if you are good at your job they may keep you.
Since I've never been lucky enough to have the means to support myself without working, I'd take the money so I don't end up homeless.
You lost me at "U.C. Berkley..."
I'm not even in school and I'd like to work for Google, even for free. One of these things has the potential to open up an unlimited future. The other gives you a taste of corporate drudgery for seventeen bucks an hour.
kind of depends on how badly you need their money...
Id love to be part of something interesting. I've worked at Safeway and it's so stupid. They are way too lax.
I don't work for free.
With kids need the money
Too little info. How am I paying for college? Do I have manageable loan amounts? Am I just emptying the trash cans over in the Google predictive research group? Am I going to get something I want to do out of Google?
Google. It'll look better on your resume when you go for your next job.
Google. Plus Safeway just got bought.
Google if you Can.
Sales is sales. Stuff rarely changes in sales. Google is evolution. I'd rather push forward into the 21st century.
Kind of depends on how bad I need the money. Google would be great, but if I can't eat, it's no good.
Because that psychology degree will probably earn you less than Safeway.
do you really think so? Psychology is considered by many to be a valid science. were you maybe confusing it with philosophy? Psychologists do a huge number of things from working for huge fortune 500 companies to running their own private practice
charging people 100 dollars an hour to provide therapy.
If they have a masters or doctorate. A bachelors in psychology isn't very useful.
It would depend on how badly I needed the money. I would love the life experience that Google could provide.
I choose the one I can afford.
This is also why internships should be paid.
