Man, mine is trying hard to find something in her field. But its hard in that area. What does she want to do? thats the big ?
We'll both be straight out of undergrad with psychology major/business minor and she wants to go to law school after I do. As such, it's not as important that what she does - just wants to be able to pay off her student loans.
Hmm...maybe she can find some full time work in her immediate field of psychology. Perhaps there is a lab she can work in at UVA or a college close by. My s/o is finishing her undergrad and has worked in a few university labs on research grants. She is also a psych undergrad and will be doing grad school at Johns Hopkins which isn't to far away (Baltimore). We are both pretty excited about how our grad school locations ended up in terms of proximity to one another!
Thank you for the suggestions, and congratulations on y'all both having such good opportunities close by - 3 hours is not bad at all! My GF wants to go to law school at LSU next year and that would be reallly far.. hopefully we can find something in Virginia for her to do
