My Fisher Internship
Paul Sobecki – Welcome To My Home!

Written by:

Tall.  Skinny. (Although college is being credited with slowly, but surely altering this)  Pale.  A 5 on a scale of 1 to 10 in the looks department?  And if that all isn’t enough, how about coming to visit me in Mark Twain’s hometown.  Sound like someone you may be interested in?  Probably not, so it’s a good thing that I have a good sense of humor.  Give me a chance and follow my blog this summer.

My Summer House

Hey Everyone!  My name is Paul Sobecki and I am a third year in Logistics and Operations Management at the Fisher College of Business.  If you don’t know what those two specializations mean, don’t worry, I’m still figuring all the details out too.  Last summer, I worked at The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company World Headquarters, located in Marysville, Ohio.  I had the great pleasure of working in their Supply Chain Innovation group.  This summer I am working for General Mills in one of their field locations, located in Hannibal, Missouri.

I grew up in Centerville, Ohio, just south of Dayton, where I attended Archbishop Alter High School.  Throughout my years there I played basketball, football, and soccer.  I spent a lot of my time from 8th grade until my sophomore year of college working at my grade school, The Church of Incarnation, with my best friend Dan Biga.  Shifting from soccer to football during my junior year in high school, I found a true passion for the sport.

After deciding to forgo the opportunity to walk on the Penn State football team and deciding to attend The Ohio State University, I put my best foot forward (no pun intended) and took a shot at becoming a member of the Buckeye football team.  When the news came in that I did not make the team, I decided to shift my efforts towards school.  However, I am now the all-star intramural punter for my team, Sampson Simpson, 2009 Intramural Football Champs!

I am really looking forward to my summer at General Mills:  meeting new people, expanding my horizons, doing some traveling, and making a difference in my role.  I am very excited to be able to share my experiences and instill some of my wisdom (the little I have) upon all of my followers.

Until we meet again on my next blog
