My Fisher Internship
First Day
The First Day
The First Day

Getting There My first rush hour! Not as bad as expected… Once I made it to the parking garage, the Cincinnati Police did us all a favor by rating the safety of everybody’s vehicles in the garage. By taking a peak in everybody’s cars they were able to assess the likelihood of getting broken into […]

Hello Full-Time…bye bye boss?
Hello Full-Time...bye bye boss?

As I began to transfer back into a full-time roll here at Mettler, I anticipated doing much of what I did last summer – designing and running reports, conducting RFPs (a bidding process for suppliers who want our business) and helping resolve travel issues for our multitude of globe-trotting employees. Boy was I in for […]

PGR ARP PCA
PGR ARP PCA

That’s what I was having to learn for most of my first day…acronyms. My job title, listed up top, being one of the easier ones (Progressive Accounting Rotation Program – Progressive Commercial Auto unit). DWP, LAE, PIF, and CR to name a few others. Here is my timeline for a day in the life of a newbie: […]

My “Grown Up” Summer
My "Grown Up" Summer

Well I think to safe to say I have had a crazy week!  Three Finals, moving out of my dorm room back to Cincinnati and then to home for the next ten weeks, Pittsburgh. Monday June 13 8:30am, I entered the “Real World”. This summer I am interning for Accenture as an Associate Consultant. My […]

A Day full of Surprises
A Day full of Surprises

What is the one thing every true Buckeye fan cannot stand? The Michigan fight song (or anything Michigan related) in my mind. Well on my first day of work I met my boss who is a huge Michigan fan. As he was wearing his maize and blue striped shirt he “honored” me by playing the Michigan […]

I hopped off the plane at LAX…
I hopped off the plane at LAX...

Week 1- Wow! Since I’ve arrived in LA on Sunday night, June 12th I have… Rented an amazing SUV (brand new Ford Escape) paid for by Nestle for the next three months…I’d say that’s a nice little beach car :) Moved into an amazing apartment complex on the same mountain as the Hollywood sign.  Every […]

CHANGED for good
CHANGED for good

When it finally hit me and I realized that I was actually living on a different continent, working in a new environment, sharing a    home with twelve people I’d barely met, and was without my Iphone, Chi hair straightener, & every college kid’s staple – Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing, I thought to myself ‘I […]

First Week at Basketball Ireland
First Week at Basketball Ireland

My first week at BI was an experience like that of anyone’s first week at a new job.  I took a lot of time to learn where things were in the office and got to know the staff.  I found out that two of my co-workers have played professional basketball in Europe.  I was very […]

KPMG Chicago: The First Days
KPMG Chicago: The First Days

The accounting industry is driven by deadlines.  Clients require work to be completed by a certain deadline in order to file reports with various regulatory agencies.  I was aware of the importance of deadlines before starting at KPMG and even had first hand experience meeting deadlines before I started!  With my last final ending at […]

First Week @ Boeing
First Week @ Boeing

My first week at Boeing has come to a close so I will give you all a short recap.  Firstly, I’ve deciphered what exactly my department (Pricing and Offerability Estimation) does: when a consumer wants to buy a plane from Boeing, they often want it customized to their preferences.  This can include special luxury seats, […]

Very Aerie
Very Aerie

Week one is all done, and while navigating the streets of downtown Pittsburgh hasn’t exactly been a joy ride (even with my trusty GPS), working for American Eagle has been! My internship is essentially a ten week interview, and its definitely going to be a great learning and networking experience! Think meet and greets with […]

You should have been there…
You should have been there...

Well, let’s just say it has been an interesting couple of days. I flew to Florida for a few days on a long weekend vacation to get away from Buckeyeland. I could not have asked for better weather but had a little anxiety about coming to Cardinal. The first thing I did wrong: not re-apply sunscreen. […]

Ten Week Interview
Ten Week Interview

Well, I survived Week One, and what a week it was! After navigating the subway, finding the Time and Life Building, and making up to HR, I sat down for orientation. In orientation, I heard a phrase that I have continued to hear throughout my first week, and one that will certainly be on my […]

Week One & Sports Galore
Week One & Sports Galore

One week in the books at the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, and I am already grateful for the opportunity presented to me this summer. To review, the Sports Commission is charged with seeking out, planning and executing sporting events for the Cleveland area, to help improve the quality of life and image of the city. […]

My Unofficial 1st Day: ALS Awareness Day @ Cincinnati Reds
My Unofficial 1st Day: ALS Awareness Day @ Cincinnati Reds

I had my first official day of work on Monday, but I kicked off my internship with the ALS Association the day before at the ALS Awareness Day at the Cincinnati Reds game!  The organization rented out the party deck for over 100 people including patients and their friends and families and staff.  The Reds […]

First Day in the Big Apple
First Day in the Big Apple

Overwhelming… That’s the best word that I can use to explain my first couple days in New York City. Of course my flight was delayed and it wouldn’t be New York unless my shuttle ride from the airport took more than 2 hours. So it’s 9 PM, 2 suitcases and a back pack in hand, and I […]

First week: Check!
First week: Check!

I have had a good week. A great week, in fact. The week went fast after two days of training and many handshakes. The preparation for the first week was an important key. I prepared accordingly, typical questions that passed my mind were: What will I wear? What questions will I ask? Who am I […]

General Thoughts about being an Intern

Hi everybody. My name is William Robinson, I’m majoring in Logistics at Fisher, and I plan on graduating in June 2010. I guess I’m starting this blog a little late, but here is an update on my experiences over the last four weeks. Seeing that I only have two quarters of classes left, this Autumn […]

Arrival in Dominican Republic
Arrival in Dominican Republic

Arrived a little past midnight due to the delays, the two interns from HOPE graciously picked me up from the Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic’s Capital) airport since my Spanish isn’t up to par, I studied French in high school… oops! They showed me back to their apartment, which was tiny, I’m extremely surprised they made […]

First Week at HOPE International

June 2-5 Tuesday: Originally was going to leave for Lancaster tonight, but oops… change of plans, I haven’t studied enough. I’m taking my last exam tomorrow at 8 AM; off to cram. Wednesday: Finished my last final and head back to the apartment to pack for the summer. It’s kind of surreal that I only […]
