After a busy end of last week and an even busier weekend (undergrad homecoming!) I’m back to the grind of what looks like a very busy Sunday evening. By the end of my time here at Fisher and OSU I will be a professional multi-tasker…as I write this article I am catching up on Project Runway and once I am done writing this I will still be watching Project Runway and writing an email to my group for my “Business 101” class. Then I will be running through some talking points for my interview tomorrow (insert music from Jaws here) and then finally reading for class on Wednesday…in bed…which means I’ll make it through 5 pages before falling asleep. But I planned for that don’t worry.
“Business 101” is actually Business for the HR Professional and it is like getting your MBA in one quarter. Only not as intense. No where near as intense. I’m really glad it is required though because I definitely will feel more confident after this class about the business world and how organizations really work. I’ll also be veryyyy well versed on the Banking Bailout, which is the project topic my group picked. We are presenting a lovely power point presentation in class this Thursday. My group is made up of three other girls and myself and I couldn’t be happier with us all. We are very productive and efficient and get along really well together. We’ve had two group meetings and assigned different parts of the project and then we will meet this week two times before class to run through the presentation. We also did a short presentation this past Thursday which went pretty well. By the time I’m done at Fisher my fear of public speaking will be completely eliminated.
And yes I have an interview tomorrow. I also have one on Tuesday. I feel much more confident about tomorrow because it’s actually for the company my Dad has worked for since the early 90’s so at least I have something going for me. Tuesday is another story….I felt compelled to sign up to be preselected for every interview I possibly could and now I’m thinking that was a bad idea because the industry of Tuesday’s company is not my cup of tea. But at least it will be good practice and who knows…maybe I will change my mind.
So I’m off to be busy and productive with my time and to keep on talking to myself about myself in preparation for tomorrow. Wish me luck!!!!
