My Fisher Internship
Let’s Get This Started!

Written by:

So, my name’s Katie and I’m a third year accounting major.  I’m from Saint Paris Ohio, a little tiny town north of Dayton.  After graduating from my small high school I was more than ready for my big move to Columbus.  In late winter I got an offer from Johnson & Johnson to work in the finance department their pharmaceutical division for 6 months beginning in June and I jumped at the chance.  I’m working in New Jersey, but I’m living in Philadelphia with family and driving to work.  I moved out here last Thursday and it’s been a whirlwind so far.

This summer I’m really hoping to learn a lot about the real world.  Although I’m an accounting major I don’t think I want to do public accounting.  So far I’ve found that I prefer corporate finance, which is what I’m doing for J&J.  I’m looking forward to finding out if I really do like it or if maybe public accounting looks more appealing, or, who knows, maybe neither!  In a nut shell I really just want to learn and take in everything I possibly can to carry with me throughout my last year of school and the start of my career afterwards.

I start work tomorrow so I’m just there will be some exciting news coming up!

    Best wishes to you in your new endeavor working and living in the Philadelphia area. I’m curious, how do you commute to your internship at J&J and how long does it take to get there?

    I’m driving to work everyday and it really isn’t that bad. I’m driving away from Philadelphia and most people are driving into the city so I don’t have the problem of Philadelphia rush hour traffic which is nice. It takes me about 45 minutes to get to work but it’s much more common to have long commutes here than it is in Ohio. Some of my coworkers have longer drives.
