PIs, does your department have rules on outside part-time employment for your graduate students?
Explicit rule against: 40%
Implicit rule against: 15%
Up to the PI: 17%
No rule against: 28%
Not talking about secondments to industry, etc. I'm talking about grad students moonlighting driving pizzas, etc.It seems pretty reasonable to me for schools to discourage outside employment (pizza delivery at night, etc.), but perhaps I have a limited imagination. If I were a PI, someone would have screwed up -- but if I were a PI, I'd be pretty unhappy if you had a swing shift at McDonald's down the way. That said, maybe PIs don't care?
Anyone have a strong feeling one way or another? Curious if folks have stories around this.
