"I highly enjoyed my experience at Drexel University. I found the environment to be overly friendly, helpful and positive. I would recommend Drexel to anyone looking for career change. The additional bonus of being able to complete a Masters Degree while working for the University is a benefit that everyone should take advantage of if they are able to do so. Drexel also offers many opportunities to get involved outside of you 9-5 job."

Research Assistant

"Research is both your job and your education, so there is no conflict there. Some of the faculty can be very helpful."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"This is a research university, so let your nerdiness show. However, stick mostly to relevant topics. The chemistry department doesn't care about your Renaissance Faire habit."

"Taking on hundreds more undergrads than in past years, and then hurriedly building more dorms to house them, is not a good long-term strategy for making money."
