Should I help a colleague with a job? Even if I find them mildly evil?

This is the prettiest question I've asked and I feel pretty crap asking it. However, I'm a student about to enter the working world for the first time, so I don't know what the rules are around this kind of thing. Help please? [more inside]

Applied for a research position, multiple labs responded. What do I do?

I applied to intern/assist at a number of research labs under the same university, and unexpectedly received multiple positive replies asking to meet in person. I don't think each professor knows I applied to other professors at the same university at this point, but they probably all know each other. How do I handle this properly and politely? (I don't want to offend anyone...) Help! (Longer explanation inside.) [more inside]

How to choose between several internship options in a graduate program

I am currently doing a two-year M.A. program at a European university, and soon I have to choose between three options for a 10-week internship to begin next quarter. I want to choose the internship that will best set me up to be a competitive Ph.D. candidate, but it's hard to make a decision between options that each have their own pros and cons. What criteria should I use or what aspects of the programs should I give the most weight to when making this decision? [more inside]

How to work out what to do with too many "eggs"?

I applied for a scholarship to do a Masters program starting next April, but I might also be offered an internship that starts then.

Goodbye unpaid internship...

I am currently interning at a company and yesterday I was offered a job at another company. My problem is they would like me to start immediately next week and I have yet to tell my supervisor, where I am interning, that I decided to take the job. The internship had no set time or commitment and it is unpaid. How and what should I say to my supervisor by email? I intern three days a week and will not be able to see him today or tomorrow.

Best route to a nicer future

I'm about to finish second year of Software Engineering at my mid-tier Canadian university and have no intention of continuing any further. I'd like to transfer into one of the more prestigious colleges in the US, although getting in seems like a complete crapshoot given my current circumstances.

How do I get the job I really want?

I want to become an investment banker, badly. After finding out as much as I can about what i-banking actually is, the more I want to do it. There's a short list of about 5-10 "top 40" institutions that I think make a good match in what kind of culture I want, what I'm looking for in a company. I'm a senior (err, graduate a semester early in December). The problem is I'm at a non-top tier college. [more inside]
