Anticipating Internship
Embarkation Week in Pittsburgh, PA
Embarkation Week in Pittsburgh, PA

My journey with Giant Eagle began at Embarkation week in Pittsburgh, PA.  I had expected our orientation sessions to be in-depth training on how to do our jobs, ex. how to write an order. However, I was very wrong. We embarked on a benchmarking project, where we compared Giant Eagle’s banners (Market District, Giant Eagle […]

My Great American Road Trip, and First Day Jitters
My Great American Road Trip, and First Day Jitters

Five days and some 2,250 miles later, I’ve arrived in Los Angeles to begin the first of my nine weeks with Ross Stores, Inc. My drive was anything but boring: my brother and I left Columbus in search of some of America’s greatest landmarks, like the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, MO and Grand Canyon […]

A Week To Remember
A Week To Remember

My first week with Univar can be summed up in three words: overwhelming, exciting and eye-opening. From the first day I walked through the doors of the Strongsville distribution center, I was caught in a whirlwind. From meeting all of the employees and my program mentor, touring the Cleveland facilities, going through new hire training, […]

The Journey Begins
The Journey Begins

This past week has been a whirlwind. From somehow fitting everything in my small car, including myself, and arriving in northeast Ohio to getting used to my new environment for the remainder of the summer, I have had plenty to keep me busy. My internship with Univar USA does not start for a couple of weeks, […]

Mixed Emotions
Mixed Emotions

I’m excited to have moved to a new city and start an amazing internship. I’m nervous about being in a new place and worried what will happen if I don’t perform well. I’m eager to learn more about the Human Resources field and meet new people along the way. I’m a little sad and missing […]

Preparing for a New Kind of First Day

Hello everyone, my name is Kelly and I am so incredibly excited to start my first ever internship. It’s crazy how not even four months ago I was preparing for my first career fair and now, here I am! As only a rising junior, I only went to the career fair to scope it out […]

My Summer with Ford has Begun!
My Summer with Ford has Begun!

Hello my lovely Fisher family!  I honestly can’t believe this is my last summer as an undergrad at OSU.  I’m not quite sure I’m ready to step into the “real world” next year, but hopefully interning with Ford Motor Company this summer will help me feel closer to being an adult! When I was first […]

Hugs and Kisses – Culture at Dow
Hugs and Kisses – Culture at Dow

Week one of working with The Dow Chemical Company was an abrupt contrast to the somber corporate accounting department I was expecting to be a part of.  It was week 3 of co-location and the Brazil team was getting ready to head back home.  To my surprise the level of emotion in the room was […]

Helpful Hints

Coming into the 10th and final week of my internship at Exel, I thought that I’d give a list of advice that I learned while interning this summer.   Always have a pen and a notebook with you. I don’t know how many times I might be walking from a meeting or sitting at my […]

Better Late Than Never
Better Late Than Never

I have finally made it to Brazil! The process of getting here has not been easy, that’s for sure. But if nothing else, it has certainly taught me a lesson or two. Most notably, I learned to get creative with the resources available and to be persistent to no end. Let me explain. The entire […]

Cannot believe my first week is done(scream.....lol)

Hey guys, I’m back to blog. I’ve been in Dublin, Ireland for two weeks already. Because of the design of the EUSA academic internship program, our first week is basically to have a brief interview with my supervisor and get familiar with the city of Dublin and its transportation system. I also did some sightseeing, which […]

The OC Chronicles: Orientation Part I
The OC Chronicles: Orientation Part I

*OC = Owens Corning…not to be confused with The OC as in Orange County, Cali or that once-popular tv show following over privileged teens living in said city. This first week has been so crazy, I’m still not entirely sure what just happened. The best way to start, I guess, is at the beginning (deep, […]

So, I get off the A train...Now what?

I gave the commute a trial run this weekend, and on Monday when I got off the subway at 59th and Columbus Circle, I suddenly felt like the internship was real, more tangible than it had been before.   (The NYC Subway app might be the best $0.99 ever spent, by the way, maybe with the […]

Learning to Hem
Learning to Hem

Oh my goodness.  My new suit sleeves were slightly too long, so I decided that I could fix it in the two days prior to my internship.  Halfway through the process, I had to vent to a friend in a state of anxiety, disbelief, and frustration.  It has taken me about seven hours, and I […]
