Looking for a summer science research opportunity and didn't make it out to the VCU BEST event, check out the running list on our website: https://tinyurl.com/SummerSciOpp My summer research experience at VCU allowed me the opportunity to pick up on the necessary mentality, skills, and work ethic required to continue with professional research right out of my psychology degree. For any student out there considering whether to apply to a summer research opportunity or not, I would encourage you not only to send an application but continue looking for other opportunities. Your experience is what you make it, so get started early and put in the effort to set yourself up for success down the road. - Ronald Romero-Barrientos, @vcupsychology alumnus.

An advantage most students have is being more up-to-date with technology than some seasoned professionals. But they lack industry trend knowledge. Try visiting the VCU library and read up on professional journals each month. These provide an in-depth look at the changing landscape inside your particular field and will better prepare your future career field. . . . #HireVCURams #HandshakeatVCU
