Happy Fall, everyone! The temperature is dropping here in Columbus but some beautiful fall colors were seen these past few weeks! Fall at Ohio State campus
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.
Time has still been flying by around here, and there has been lots of excitement. Notably the end of our first terms, and our first round of exams. Each semester at Fisher is divided into two 7 week terms, which means a new set of courses every 7 weeks, just to keep us on the bounce. In addition to new classes, the internship search seems to be coming along, with people attending conferences out of state, second round interviews, and some starting to receive offers.
This week I had the opportunity to participate in the first big case competition of the year on campus, which was sponsored by Proctor & Gamble (a consumer brand goods company based in Cincinnati, OH). The case was marketing based, using a real P&G brand, and interacting with members of the brand management team that actually works on the product's marketing strategy.
