    Please focus your question.

    What is the recommendation for?

    Go with the people that know you best. I don't know if you can have a recommendation from a student but if a TA knows you better than the Dean, go with the TA. It's useless to have a recommendation from someone who may be high up on the totem pole yet does not know you.

    well i'm just asking a general question. not really a particular thing, i'm just wondering. say, you needed recommendations for an internship at a museum. who would you go to for that?

    If they are generally expecting college students, then ask professors that know you well and have a favorable impression. If it is a general job, then you might consider a professor and a recommendation from a previous employer.
