That's the kind of magic that I get from mercurial spirits. Jobs, short term windfall-opportunities. Doesn't tie you down long.
can you define what you mean by your use of the word "mercurial" in this case? I know to different meanings that might both apply in this situation =)
I have to say, at least in my University, that's a pretty unusual situation. Professors here either expect you to be hired by a student-work program, to work for class credit, or to work for free (because they figure the work looks good on your resume).But hey, on the bright side, you won't be completely broke while looking for the next big opportunity =)
