Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
Caltech's Career Center is very useful, and it helps place students in all types of programs, internships, jobs, etc. They help with off-campus jobs and internships, as well. The school is very small and on-campus jobs usually consist of lab work within a student's respective field. The in-field jobs involve finding a professor whose research interests you and approaching the professor and expressing that interest. Most professors here like having undergrads work with them, so it is usually not a problem finding research.
