The Perks of Being an Intern
The Perks of Being an Intern

Goodyear has an amazing intern program for the summer. In total there are about 140 interns, co-ops and new campus hires that are involved in this program. We meet as a group every Tuesday and Thursday scheduling events, speakers, tours or planning the annual intern picnic. Last week I got to take a tour of […]

Getting Antsy to Start With Giant Eagle
Getting Antsy to Start With Giant Eagle

My first day of my internship is with Giant Eagle will be June 3rd. Although I will be working in Columbus all summer, Day 1 begins in Pittsburgh for orientation, called Embarkation. Pittsburgh is where Giant Eagle headquarters are located and I am looking forward to going there because; I have never been to Pittsburgh […]

First Day: Complete
First Day: Complete

Today I began my journey as an intern in the steel industry. I arrived at ArcelorMittal in downtown Cleveland at 8 am and was excited to meet seven other interns. However, after introductions I realized that all seven of them were mechanical and electrical engineers and I was the only financial intern. But, of all […]

What up, dorm life?

Nothing makes you appreciate the closet-sized room that you have on campus like sharing a one-person hotel room with a complete stranger for ten weeks. I guess we’re starting with the bad news first.  It’s true; my company has squeezed eighteen interns into nine rooms within an extended-stay hotel.  The rooms are as small as […]

Greetings from Marysville!

I have now spent nearly 6 weeks interning at the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company’s (collectively known as “Scotts”) corporate headquarters located here in Marysville, Ohio. Its’ location is about a 30 minute drive from Ohio State, but I was fortunate to be able to rent an apartment only 10 minutes away from Scotts. I still have over 4 months left, as […]

Relationships With Co-workers
Relationships With Co-workers

Friendships with co-workers can be tricky.  Obviously everyone wants to be friendly, however it can become tricky at work.  This isn’t a new problem either, its been a tough topic for years.  There can be issues with scandalous events becoming the topic of conversation, there can embarrassing photos from Facebook, or there is the always tempting office prank […]

KeyKlubhouse
KeyKlubhouse

“Area of Refuge,” reads a sign above the entrance to the stairwell on the sixth floor.  When I first noticed this sign, I had visions of exasperated interns suddenly throwing all of their papers and pitch books into the air and bolting into the refuge, maybe to return.  Since my deceivingly quiet and unquestionably hilarious […]

Meetings, Meetings and more Meetings
Meetings, Meetings and more Meetings

I’ve met a great deal of people thus far and it’s only the start of week two. Stuffed inside the Regent Court building are thousands of employees from all different backgrounds, working in all different fields. I think the most nerve-wracking experience thus far has been attending meetings. I always thought commenting in Schoenbaum 105 […]

Finance Intern Event: Harvard Case Study
Finance Intern Event: Harvard Case Study

One of the events planned for finance interns at Scotts is a case study project and presentation. We had to block off most our schedule for this day because we only had those 9 hours in a workday to complete the case! There were four of us all together: two accounting majors, one finance major […]

That’s some good Craic!
That's some good Craic!

I have to say, since I’ve been in Dublin, I’ve seen sports in a whole new light.  I don’t have a TV and there is a huge time zone difference, so the only way I can stay up to date on sports in America are looking at scores and articles on ESPN.com.  Being a sport […]

Family-Like Environment
Family-Like Environment

One thing that has stood out to me from working with Scott’s so far is the close-knit atmosphere. I already mentioned that coworkers share their stories about their families with one another (at appropriate times of course), but Scotts as a company whole makes you feel a part of their own family.  Throughout the summer […]

Window Washing and Weed Wacking
Window Washing and Weed Wacking

Time is really starting to fly here in St. Joes.   Throughout the summer there have been many   ways to get involved.  One of the groups that I have taken the most interest in is the Young Professionals Network (YP!)  here at Whirlpool.  Over this past week there was an  event – YP! Reach 100.  The […]

Eveything’s bigger in Texas and Smaller in Mackinac
Eveything's bigger in Texas and Smaller in Mackinac

While I know Dow has locations everywhere I never thought I’d get to see any of them outside of Midland this summer. Like I’ve blogged about already, I got to go to Philadelphia my 3rd day here. Now I have also been to Michigan Operations (which is here in Midland but it’s the big plant […]

NESTLE: Good Food, Good Life.
NESTLE: Good Food, Good Life.

  Taste Testing- My title couldn’t be more accurate.  Nestle is 150% providing me with a summer full of “Good Food and Good Life”.  About three weeks after I started working at Nestle this summer I finally went downstairs to the basement to participate in the daily taste testing of our potential new products. Since then, […]

What Color Are You?

Don’t worry, that question isn’t nearly as offensive as it sounds. Here at OCLC, that question refers to your Birkman color, an assessment that identifies what your interests are, what your usual behavior is like, what your needs are and how you react if you do not have those needs met. It is a tool […]

Midway Point in Midland

Countdown continues, my summer in Midland is already half over, meaning 5 weeks to go. Although I have only had 6 weeks of having an internship within the corporate field I feel I’ve picked up a few good tid bits of advice I can share: Know what time zone people are on: making an international […]

All work and…play!
All work and...play!

The biggest fundraising weekend for the Hocking Valley Community Hospital Foundation is now over. While the weekend events required much planning, the actual weekend proved to be really fun – not only for those attending as guests, but also for everyone who works at the hospital that worked the event! Overall, the hospital’s foundation raised just […]

“Are you in charge of us?”

One of the interesting things about being the HR intern this summer at OCLC has been my interaction with the other interns.  The positions in our program range from finance, to legal, to digital collections, to web marketing and more.  And of course, HR. Being that I’m the HR intern, I’ve had my hands in […]

Could life be any better?
Could life be any better?

Four day weeks: Very much so appreciated when you’re working full time!  We had a 4 day week last week because of the 4th of July and this week we have another one (sort of) because Nestle is holding an “Offsite Logistics Event” this Friday at Universal Studios.  I don’t know that much about the […]

Show me how you “Shake and Bake”
Show me how you "Shake and Bake"

So I know the phrase “Shake and Bake”was made famous from the movie Talladega Nights, but we also use the saying here at Abercrombie to describe  the process of being able to react, re-evaluate, and develop a plan in order to achieve the best quality product for the brand.  During my time at A&F I am already […]

Three P’s
Three P's

So much happened this week at American Greetings that I will break it down into three categories: projects, people, and places. Projects: My manager gave me the outlines for my projects.  I am in charge of compiling line lists (lists of merchandise, in our case, cards), making sure the forum  (the card display room) is […]

Week one of the real world
Week one of the real world

Hi all, This past week was my first full work week at Cardinal Health and so much has happened already! The first day consisted of intern orientation, in which we learned the logistics of Cardinal (technology, expectations etc.) toured the facilities, and met our managers for the first time face to face. I had never […]

True Life: Lexi Merritt went to Vegas.
True Life: Lexi Merritt went to Vegas.

Vegas.  Yes, as crazy as this sounds- It’s true.  My nice, laid back, relaxing weekend I was planning on having turned into a trip to Vegas with another Nestle Intern, Kelly Sipple!  We met one of my really good friends from Virginia in Vegas for a night!  Everyone who really knows me knows that this is […]
