Opportunity to stay on with the company in the future after graduationthat's what he needs to come an answer.
what are the benefits he will be getting out of this summer job?
is the pay overall really good? Is it good work experience that will help him land a great position either in the future with this company or another in his field? Will he be receiving mentorship that will make the commute worth the efforty? etc etc.
if I couldnt get a travel allowance for hte time spent, then the answers to the above questions would be the deciding factor.
I am not a morning person in the least, so what I am getting out of waking up so early would have to be very worthwhile.
This is a good company and having this on my resume would get me in the door, I think. They offering Mentorship
Travel to another state for a conference
I will have to wake at 4:00am.
The commute would be about 2hrs one way but because of how the LIRR runs I must be in the train station by 5:17am
Its just for 3months
They have not decided the pay yet but it would definitely cover my travel expenses, I will make some money but I am more happy for the opportunity
Its just I don't like waking early in the morning. If I slack and miss that 5:17 am train, my ass is sure to be screwed because I would have to wait for 1 hour and half until the next one.
