    So now that I finished all the paperwork for my co-op program I'm now looking for positions and I've found this one. Looks awesome, I'm going to apply to it and hopefully get in since I've got pretty good chances of getting it.

    Of course they'll pick someone with a GPA > 3 (me).

    Do you get to do the embryo transfer? I almost took a job last fall doing vascular surgery on rats - giving them strokes in a specific artery in their brains. The procedure was fun, I did two during my interview (6 hours!), but the pay sucked (25k).

    The pay for this one sucks even more :(

    But I still want the job oh so badly. I just wish I could have taken vertebrate biology lab this semester instead of the lame invertebrate biology lab. That would have given me another leg up on it.

    I work one day a week at my current job (sundays). This job would be a four or eight month position.

    Finished off all the paperwork and applied. Now I get to wait a week and see if I'm short-listed for the position.

    I didn't get the bccrc job but I did get offered a job for the position that I interviewed for today. It's a lab tech position at the animal care facility on campus for an eight month term.

    Should I accept?

    The pay is kind of crappy, but I know it would look good on my resume and I'd probably enjoy playing with the 500lb piggies.

    I've always been told that experience is a huge plus on resumes...I'd say go for it if you think the pay is acceptable for the amount of time/work you will be investing in the position.
