I guess this can go here because soon I will be applying for serious jobs but how do you become close with your professor so you can use him on references w/o being a total brown noser?

Just make an effort to be active in class and be personable when you see him on campus. I never even approached some of my instructors about it and had 2 of them tell me they would be more than willing to write a letter of reccommendation or would be fine with me using them as a reference if I would like.

Most profs are more than willing to write you a letter of recommendation or recommendation, you won't need to go out of your way assuming you were/are a good student. The only advice I can give you however is if they sound even slightly hesitant, just move on. A lukewarm recommendation is pointless. Also, talking to them about your specific plans and goals will allow them to tailor their recommendations, which should help.

also, on that note, looking for teaching jobs is a horrid life experience

I'm jealous. I'll be graduating in August, but all my summer courses are online (except for 1 which is a 1 week GHA in May). Summer at PSU is the best and it's not even close.

I talked with him about possibly doing some marketing stuff for the team, and he said all he could offer me was a ticket sales job and he really encouraged me not to do that. Just old me to stay at my current job and get back to him when I have more experience.

However, I wish I would have taken it because I know I can sell baseball tickets, and it would give me an in to work myself up into the marketing position eventually.
Nah, I'd be an Event Logistics Assistant for their non-gameday events (so like Color Run, Weddings, Corporate meetings, concerts at the stadium, etc). It literally is nearly identical to what I did as the Distribution Management Director for Penn State Homecoming this past year (we had over 16 events, with like 12 of them crammed into one week including the largest collegiate homecoming parade in the nation).

I have a very diverse experience background. On one side, I have a very analytic/logistical background from starting out as an Industrial Engineering major, and on the other side I have a sports marketing heavy based background from my work with the athletic department (marketing intern for 2+ years, PR/Marketing Chair for Nittany Nation, and President of Nittany Nation).

I wouldn't mind doing ticket sales. One thing I've found out about myself is that I'm not amazing at talking in front of large groups of people, but if I get in a 1v1 convo or even 3v1 convo, I can get people to do nearly anything.

For professors, just find one or two that you like and go kick it in their office hours. You can begin talking about a topic that you are interested in and then usually pretty easily go into a normal conversation (if the professor is normal/cool).

As far as jobs go, I work in television production. Our season is ending soon though and I think I might try to make a change. It's been solid experience and I have met some REALLY good people, but my work/life balance is awful and I want that to change. Looking towards a possible move into advertising.

I'm also pushing hard for a job in London for personal reasons so that makes things a bit more tricky. Would be sweet if it all worked out though.

Here you go:

Scottyboy is a wonderfully positive person. He posts with sincerity and is appreciated by the rest of his community for his good humor and witty banter. He is also extremely hirsute. I feel that these qualities allow him to be a great teacher. Especially the part about the hair.

I do sales for TCF Bank. I don't know how much I really like it and I definitely don't want to do sales forever, but I'm pretty good at it and there's opportunities for advancement within the company which is in my target industry, so I'm cool with it for now.

What kind of sales? Also, make sure you document your process and the company's process. Extremely useful down the road.

I'm a Chartered Accountant and just got back from 6 and a bit months holidays and found that apparently my resume is recruiter krptonite as I got multiple job offers within a week of hitting the market.

It's really easy to find a job right now for me which is nice. Got the nice pay jump that starting somewhere new gets you as well just for shits and giggles!

As for the job, accounting is as boring as the stereotypes would imply but it's very easy, pays very well and has great long term prospects as well as being an outstanding foundation for just about any kind of business career. It's not intellectually rewarding or anything like that and it certainly isn't fun but it's still quiet a decent career and allows me to live a pretty good life and it's great knowing that you can drop it for sustained periods and come back to it and easily find a job.

Na I won't be on campus. I'm part of their online campus. They had the best online program I could find at a reasonable price and the great thing is I can log in my course hours while at work, which is incredibly convenient for me.

They have a good engineering program there for a state university so I'm looking forward to it.
