Employers are searching for people who can critically think, problem solve, and communicate.  Research is a great way to pick up all these skills.  If you are interested in participating in research over the summer, you should spend a few minutes to check out NSF REUs (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) opportunities.  Besides enhancing skills, it's an opportunity to visit other parts of the country and world.  You also can develop new friendships working with students from around the country.  Several of our students have participated in an REU.  The application deadline usually occurs in January, February, or March, so you want to start investigating possibilities and working on applications now.
