I found a research technician job which requires references.
The application requirement includes resume, cover letter, and two or three contact details of faculty references.
Will the employer contact the faculty reference?
Because I have reference letters from some faculties, is it possible for me to give these letters to the employer?
Or can I just send cover letter and resume to the employer and wait for a response? Is this a bad idea???
I haven't seen one reference for 8 months, and two of my other references for 2-3 years. They all know me very well, but I need to catch up with one of them in person and update him about my progress in college. I graduated this last June. He was my former chemistry professor for a few years, and the community college he works at I want to try for a hourly job at. He knows me well, but still needs to meet with me. It's up to me to arrange the meeting. The hourly job is open until filled, so my time is limited by an unknown short amount of time. Do I apply for it now, given the desperate times in finding a job given all the hiring freezes everywhere, or do I wait to meet with my cc professor next week to make sure HR doesn't contact him before I do?
I'm not getting any responses from major biotechnology companies (my major was in biochemistry) after over 7 months of applying for career positions (entry level research technicians). My application (resume, cover letter, and references) is solid and has no major flaws. I even did an undergraduate research project in my field. So I'm trying for hourly jobs until I can find that career position. I heard back from a contact agency and a company hiring for a lab tech, but that's all. I chose not to choose those companies, hoping for a research technician instead (I believe that I am capable and qualified to work in this title).
Obviously most serious research jobs are out without more education, but I'd like more options. Teaching (elementary or high school) is the only one I could think of. Thanks.
Before you judge, I can deal with people, but I'm looking into trade skills since normal college classes just aren't for me. Like I said, I can deal with people, but I'd prefer a job where I do work without being bothered with civilians, I put a lot of effort as an overnight stocker at Wal-Mart and it was easy, but here and then you get those jerks that be rude cause they can't find something. I felt bad for how bad some of the customers treated the cashiers.
IDK, it could just be that retail jobs aren't for me.
Another thing is, in some ways, I kinda know what I want to do (Mostly interested in Welding), but then again, I sorta don't know what I want to do with my life. Don't bother saying Military, cause truthfully Military is out of question, got med discharged from ARMY cause I needed a waiver for high arches on my feet (Pes Cavus), so now I have to wait like 2 years to reenlist and I still might not be able to join with the way the military is down sizing and the way the economy is going hurts my chances. (MEPS fault for not telling me that I needed a waiver)
I was looking at Plumbing, Electrician, different types of mechanics from Elevator Mechanic, Refrigeration Mechanic, few technician jobs, and welding.
I've been doing a lot of research on Welding, my college does Stick and TIG welding classes and I was recommended to do and get certified for both.
I was told to join a union, then again I was told not to join a union, but I was told if I join a union, I'd get free training and then get a job working with the union.
I want a good description of any mechanic, electrician, technician, welder, or any job that I listed above that are in high demand, so I can do some research and see if I'd be interested.
I might like any skilled labor jobs honestly, it could just be that I dislike retail jobs.
I'm looking into moving to Australia and will be seeking a job as a research assistant or research technician when I arrive. I am wondering if my qualifications will be sufficient to get a job in research lab that will allow me (a 22-year-old fresh out of university) to support myself.
I applied for a position of lab technician few day ago. I had a missed call from the human resource today at noon. she left me a message to see if I am still interested in the position. I returned the message when I was available but It was after her work hours, I guess ( around 4 pm), so I couldn't talk to her. Do I still have a chance to get the interview? what should I say when I return the call tomorrow morning?
In many cases, workers take on starter jobs as they prepare for their targeted career. For example, one might work as a chef at a restaurant while saving up to take advanced culinary classes, while a business person might start as an intern at a corporate business as he or she saves up for grad school in business. What is the equivalent for someone going into Clinical Psychology? Because volunteering does not generate money, I'm wondering what type of paid experience is relevant to the job.
One position is as a research technician for an oncologists lab (cancer research) and the other is as a immunogenetics tech trainee (making sure donor organs are good matches).

Ive worked in the restaurant industry for over 5 years. Im tired of it and my dream has always been to be a Software Engineer or a Computer Repair Technician. How much schooling would I need? What classes would I take? How long will it take? How much does it cost? Ive searched online and have come up with nothing... Your help is very much appreciated! =o)
I'm thinking about becoming a microbiologist in the future. What sort of jobs would help me become one, or do you just need the degrees? I'd like to be able to have some job experience before I do become a microbiologist, if I do.
I've always wanted a job as an animal caretaker/trainer (NOT a vet) such as those seen on shows like "Growing Up" on Animal Planet. However, I've had a hard time finding out any information about this job, such as the official job title, job requirements, average pay, etc. If there is any information people have from experience, or if anyone knows any resources for additional information it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! =)
Im a biology major and i haven't graduated yet, but i was just wondering what type of jobs i could get. My focus is agriculture and ecology because i don't want to do medicine. Where could i possibly work?
if you must know, i like biology. it interests me and excites me. that's why i chose it as a major.
I'm planning on becoming a research doctor/ lab technician whatever you want to call it. would it be wrong to go to a technical school and get certified to be a pharmacy technician or something and do that while i'm in school in order to pay for the enormous tuitions to follow?
Something b/w a pharmacist and chemist maybe? I don't know about a pharmacy technician though..... But I'd really like specific answers! Thanks!
I will graduate soon with a BS in Psychology. What is a job that I can get and what will the pay be? I plan on going to law school but I will have one year between undergrad and law school in which I will need a job.
Also, I have a DUI from my teenage years, can I still find a job? I am really depressed about my DUI.
Tell me what kinds of jobs I can get.
I'm interested in being an ultrasound technician, but it seems it may also be called diagnostic medical sonography? I've been trying google but it's confusing me. So whats the difference?
Also, any tips to get started in that field? i've been looking up ultrasound tech schools, would i just enroll in that after i get my A.A.?
Ok thank you! So I would just do general, cardiac or vascular?
Basically what is says. I want to help nature and animals preventing extinction in both categories. I am also a falconer so I want to teach about animals as in a zoo. What job field is this and what degree do I need for this area. I start college this spring.
I am in between transferring colleges and also changing my major as well. So not only do I need more experience in the field. But I am searching for volunteer and financial aid oppertunities. I did my research on Fastweb but they were mostly financial contests, you win or lose, like that. This is after two months of research. Please help it is for the spring semester 2013.
