As a MHRM student, a question I get asked a lot is "What made you want to get into HR?" So, here we go. I came to Ohio State as an undergraduate in Engineering. I had a rough couple semesters when I realized thatengineering was not for me. So I started looking into the business school, and once I finished my general courses I had to choose my specializations. My choices? Operations Management or HR. I picked Operations Management.
One of the greatest games ever invented is golf. There are a number of cheesy quotes from either Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, or Happy Gilmore once said in reference to the game. Any way you look at it, golf is the best frustrating game out there.
Two days ago I sat in one of the most impressive presentations I have witnessed during my time here at Fisher. I was able to learn the story of success and failures of a popular American outdoor brand, Patagonia.
I know that preparing for interviews can seem like a waste of time sometimes. In the basic sense, it is just having a conversation, so why not just go in with the attitude of: "I'm just gonna go in there, be myself, answer their questions with great stories, and knock the interviewer's socks off." And the answer is, because that probably isn't how it will go at all if you don't do any prep work, like having answers for common questions prepared.
I had several choices when choosing a MAcc program. The programs were good but in retrospect not quite as good as Fisher. Of the three programs I applied for, and was accepted to, I visited two. When it came down to it, each school was equally affordable and relocating would be an equal hassle. My decision was purely based on the quality of the school and the fit of the program. My visit to Fisher made that decision for me.
