It’s a wonder what a less painful set of shoes can do to impact your impression of the day. Today I wore a pair of TOMS shoes on the trek to the workplace from the parking garage. Then, right before entering, I switceroo’d and wore my professional shoes for the rest of the day.
Do you know what’s an interesting phenomenon, like a Theory vs. Reality clash? Skirts. Today I wore a skirt. When I look at other interns around the workplace, skirts are definitely an inch or two above the knee. Don’t get me wrong– I think one or two inches is a very good length. It’s just that all my skirts are about two inches below the knee, making me feel like an old granny.
I am still shadowing my manager and his employees. Hopefully, by the end of this week, I will know what is expected of me, and I can vocalize what I want to see in my project for the next seven weeks.
There was no huge event on this day. I mostly sat about and read presentations, watched modules, and then was tested on those facts. KeyBank is huge on confidentiality and information protection, so I can’t go too much into details about what I do or see; however, I hope to provide the clearest vague descriptions of my activities.
There is the huge pop culture stigma against corporate culture. I do not know if I necessarily agree with it, but I look forward to discovering if there are any grains of truth to such an attitude.
