My Fisher Internship

Hello everybody! I am currently a junior at Ohio State dual majoring in B.S. Business Administration: Finance and International Business, and B.A. Economics.  I was majoring in chemistry for two years before figuring out that it was too depressing of a major, so I switched to business and so far, I love it!  But enough with that boring stuff, here’s a little about myself:

I grew up in Orrville, which is a little town in northeast Ohio.  Orrville is home to the J.M. Smucker Co., and legendary NCAA coach Bob Knight.  I lettered 3-years in football and basketball, was in the percussion section of the symphony band, and was an American Legion Buckeye Boys State Delegate during high school.  While at Ohio State, I have been a member of OSU Ski Club, OSU Young Republicans Club, and am currently in the process with a couple of my buddies of establishing the OSU Brewing Club.   I pretty much enjoy what every other dude enjoys: Playing with fire/fireworks, paintballing, 4-wheeling, throwing the football and baseball, mud pits, roller coasters, and anything else that’s crazy.

 Having just transferred to Fisher College of Business from the College of Arts and Sciences two quarters ago, I was really behind on, well everything!  I knew that I had to find an internship this summer because I needed to gain some experience working in a professional environment (my former jobs had consisted of working road construction and installing water pipe).  I previously visited the United Kingdom for Spring Break 2008, and absolutely loved it, so when a buddy of mine told me about an internship opportunity through Fisher to the UK, I knew that I was on board.  The Internship that I am participating in is through Fisher, and is sponsored by a London based group known as EUSA.  This organization specializes in placing university students at U.S. institutions in internships abroad.  My internship is focusing on the areas of investment banking and corporate finance; however what I am looking for most is to gain some valuable work experience.  I could be doing logistics in a sweatshop for all I care, and will be happy as long as I get the valuable work experience that comes with the job.  I know that I will cherish the opportunity to work abroad in London, and will make the most of my stay because this is truly a once in a lifetime experience. 

 If any of my lovely readers have any questions, please feel free to comment on this page, or if you want, you can email me at  Thank you for reading this and my next update will be around June 21st in London, England.

    hello marshal, as a student in the great world of academia i would like to acknowledge doing interships are a great way to gain steps in your chosen field, even though most do not pay. i attend akron and wish i had some of the overseas opportunities that you have attending a university such as osu. you sound like you’ll will take full advantage of the opportunity you have been given and have made me look forward to my future internships. please keep up with the updates i enjoy hearing them and maybe some day we’ll encounter each other in the business. it’s nice to see a great ohioian taking advantage of his future. keep playing with fire and fireworks and i hope more people enjoy reading this blog such as i do.
