    It is new - the instructor was teaching at the college level, but wanted to be home more with her young kids, so she is starting classes for the homeschool community. She has her PhD in Biology (not sure which field), but if she'd be willing to teach a lab into to chemistry for highschool - I'd be over the moon - ha!

    Oh that is exciting! Fingers crossed and good luck! Let me know how it goes! When are interviews?

    In general, interviews for next summer's internships are going on now through October/early November, depending on who is hiring. He talked to Sandia's representatives on campus at a career fair last week and applied online, and is now waiting to hear back.

    In the meantime, he still has an offer from the company where he interned last summer (and is working part-time for now!!), a job offer in hand from them for when he graduates (in 2 years!!), and interviews with two other companies this week that went really well. He's a hard worker in a demand field. I remember waiting 3 months after graduation before I landed a job!!

    Wow! You must be so proud!

    Yes, my first degree is in community health, finding a job was not easy and the salaries were awful. After working in the field for 3 years, I decided I needed to go back to school!

    Many (many) moons ago DH did a couple of internship at Sandia one on non-invasive glucose monitoring and another on monitoring nitrate contamination from sewage lagoons. (eta) He enjoyed them both, but ended up taking a job in MI after graduation.

    RTB,

    Update: DS was contacted by Sandia Labs for an interview! Hopefully it will take place next week. He's already gotten through two sets of interviews with other companies, but he's SO much rather work at Sandia. I'm so excited for him!
