On a more serious note, I have a few first author papers that we're about to send out for review. The journals range from pretty good to great. I know there are other undergrads who have something like 7 papers all in pretty good journals before graduation, but I'm still happy about it.

Senpai, Business calc is a fucking meme.
It's watered down calc. Averages on exams are like fucking 70s whereas I pulled 95s -- I immediately dropped becoming a b-major after that joke of a class. Appending Business to anything is just watering down the subject.

An oracle had declared that any man who could unravel the elaborate Gordian knot was destined to become ruler of all of Asia. Alexander wanted to untie the knot but struggled to do so without success. He then reasoned that it would make no difference how the knot was loosed, so
he drew his sword and sliced it in half with a single stroke.
In an alternative version of the story, Alexander loosed the knot by pulling the linchpin from the yoke.

1. Go to teachers who are teaching subjects you are interested in, ask if they're doing research, and then ask if you can join their team. Some professors have their own website for their research. In that case, find their website and see if their research will benefit you.

2. They'll ask for your resume or CV or whatever, your transcript, and maybe a couple paragraphs about why you want to join their lab and what you want to do in the future.

3. Get lucky(Not really luck, you should be able to convince them you are worth having with your resume/CV and your paragraphs.

4. Get accepted.

5. Research and publish. Do not let them down, these are now your networks.

Woah sounds like applying for a postdoc. I refuse to believe people deal with that bullshit in undergrad.

Poker_Star

I think (in my experience) its difficult yet simple for humanities students. Simple, because publication in undergraduate department journals and invitations to symposiums aren't too difficult because most people in undergrad humanities are just "going through the motions" so competition isn't as stiff. Difficult for big name journals because they want 20+ page papers with banging insights into niche disciplines written through the lens of advanced theory (or alternatively you've found some amazing first hand sources on your subject). Also difficult because a lot of big name symposiums flat out don't accept undergraduates. Its not impossible, just way harder.

Again, success in the humanities is partly contingent on the accumulation on a vast bank of knowledge, so as an undergrad its hard to swim the big boys who have been studying what you've been studying since before you hit puberty.

I do research in math/physics, what said isn't too far off but it isn't as bad as , really all you do is email a prof and send your cv, after that you two meet up and talk. Basically if you have the prerequisites and they have a project for you of a suitable difficulty then you'll do that, if not maybe your research will be more akin to a reading seminar. For me I was lucky, the classes I had taken were just the ones that allowed me to start on research. I've been doing it for over 2 years. The guy I work under has had a lot of undergraduate students, so he's gotten good at gauging them and suggesting the right projects for them, because of a that a few of my projects have yielded good results. At that point all that's left is writing them up and sending them to a journal, as simple as that really.

This was my first research position, so I had my previous job titles on there and explained how they could apply. For example,

"Working at 'X' place taught me to be part of a team and introduced me to the dialogue of sharing ideas and actively working together to solve a problem. It also taught me the different ways people learn and how to best adjust yourself to interact with others and their ways even when you may not understand their creative or academic process."

Of course that's more interview style. On a resume or CV it'd be more succinct and bulleted.

I.e:

"- Worked within a team to creatively solve unique problems."

"- Adapted to a day to day changing environment."

Or whatever. Just try to think what skills you learned or used at your previous jobs and word them in a way they apply.

Also list any relevant skills and strengths you have. For example, I put fast learner and diligent. They've already commented on how I learn things quickly and get them done.

Just make yourself look good, but be honest about your good qualities. Be confident about what makes you worth something to their lab. They know you're looking to just get experience and a degree, but they also want someone who is going to take their position seriously.
