Are you kidding? Getting paid for 14 weeks of SA level 'work' is the dream.

I know. I just like sitting at home. I realize it's objectively unreasonable.

Next week is my last week. I've basically run out of assignments (1 left but it's minimal). What's the best way to coast without seeming completely worthless?

I got an easy assignment that is due the middle of next week. So that's what I am doing a couple hours a day. Other than that just grabbing coffee with ppl. I was told that was all I needed to do as long as I had enough assignments already complete

If anyone asks you guys what you are working on just say you are winding things down for the summer but would be happy to help if they need you. Don't proactively tell anyone you are out of assignments they won't notice or care.

One more week, and starting to look for new jobs. This was not a good summer, and it wasn't my fault. Ugh.

I concur. Loyal readers of this thread have suffered through dozens of posts like this: "I put too much butter on my bread last night at a firm dinner. No offer?"

We deserve some real no offer stories. Use the anon feature if necessary.
