A summer job in industry is a priceless educational opportunity. You get to assess your professional interests, the working environment of a company, and the living conditions in another region of the country. It is an unparalleled opportunity to try a corporate situation and leave with good will all around.
We encourage all students to take advantage of this opportunity, even though it usually delays progress on our projects. People, not papers or projects, are our most important product.
Even if you have already done so, please tell your research advisor whether or not you want to work on our project this summer, the number of weeks, and the fraction of time. If you want to change projects, negotiate that with both your present boss (courtesy says tell him first) and your proposed boss.
Any information, partial or tentative, will be useful and welcome. We will not consider any statements you make at this time to be binding. You can defer deciding whether to take our offer until quite late (April), after you have explored other opportunities.
