Lot depends on your degree. I interned as a junior, got the job offer, accepted it. Spent 2.5 more years in school through my masters then went to work.




Im pretty much doing the same thing and im going to graduate this spring and thinking about going back to get my MBA. How much did it help as far as getting better positions or increase salary?

I interned with a big construction company my last year of college and was hired on full time upon graduation.


Im interning right now with a construction group and hoping to get on fulltime when a graduate. Most people say the starting pay is around 50-60k....How much truth to this?

I had a signed, sealed, delivered contract before I graduated, before I had taken the National Board exam, and before I had taken the State Law exam….

that was a while back, and now BR is super saturated for pharmacists…. seems like Bossier/Shreveport is the hot bed now for jobs… Lafayette/Lake Charles too….
