My high school motto was “Learn not just for school, but for life”. This summer has put that saying to the test! With my internship drawing to a close, I can’t believe everything I have learned. From life advice to college specialization recommendations and even a suggestion to transfer to Penn State (which will not be happening) everyone has learned something from their college days. Here at Accenture everyone has sat through some boring classes and have had great professors they adore. I am no exception. At Fisher there are classes I loved (Business Management 331) and some that I dreaded (Accounting). Never the less, these classes have helped me so much throughout my internship experience.
The classes that most helped me excel in the work world are:
No matter what the future holds, I know my classes will prepare me for it. Now that I am half way done with college (fingers crossed), I can only imagine how much more I will learn and how it will help me in the future. However no matter how good your hard skills are; soft skills such as patience and confidence are still very important. Hard skills you can teach while soft skills must be developed over time. It just goes to show that employers are looking for well rounded people but understanding your course work is the first step!
Until next time,
