The next big step
Our daughter Keely graduated from college in December, with a double major in Chemistry and Biology and a minor in Math. We're really proud of the words "cum laude" on her diploma, too. She worked hard to earn them. Now she's job-hunting.
Today, I went with Keely, and she applied for a job at a laboratory. The director of the lab brought her into his office to talk about career opportunities there. He seemed happy that she had applied and thanked her for her interest. He told her that he'll probably have a temporary position available within a few weeks and several permanent positions within a few months.
They gave Keely a tour of the facility and invited me to come along as well. In the photo below, Keely's posing with an electron microscope that she greatly admired. A microscope of this sort costs several hundred thousand dollars, and it can photograph a virus with amazing detail.
I hope this works out for Keely. It's exactly the sort of job that she wants.
