Things to Think About Before Pursuing Grad School

This summer, I lived with a revolving cast of roommates, one of whom was going to go to law school in September. One night, my roommate mentioned that he was going to go through law school so he could “meet the right people,” and then he said he’d apply to med school because that was his real passion. I may have choked a bit when he said that. I was in college for seven years because I did a master’s program in English literature, followed by a Master of Library and Information Studies.

My Summer as a Librarian for a Canadian Elections Agency

Last summer, I worked in the library at Elections Canada. I got the job through FSWEP, the Federal Student Work Experience Program, which allows college students in Canada to get paid work experience through short contracts in the Federal Government of Canada.
