Daily Life And A Retrospective Look
Daily Life And A Retrospective Look

You would think that an intern would have a typical day with routine tasks and expectations. However, that is far from the case. I walk into the office in the mornings and have completely new experiences, and each one of them challenges me in new ways. That is the ultimate benefit of an internship, to […]

How We Operate
How We Operate

I am now officially over the halfway mark for my summer internship with Univar. Time has been flying by, but I am still learning new and exciting things every day. This past week I spent learning about operations by observing truck drivers, material handlers, warehouse supervisors, operations managers and lab technicians in their day to […]

And these..are the days of our lives.
And these..are the days of our lives.

Happy Friday! I am about 2 months into my internship and am truly feeling like a member of the team here at Goodyear. I thought I would share what a normal day looks like as an intern here. I get up around 6-6:15 depending on how many times I hit that glorious snooze button. I […]

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, […]

Going Places in the Middle of Nowhere

As you know, I’ve had the opportunity to travel quite a bit in my lifetime. Having moved every 3 years or less, I figured another move would just add to the list. In fact, I actually enjoy moving to new places.  This was until I was about two and a half hours in on my […]

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 […]

Feels Like Home

  Moving to a foreign country where you don’t speak much of the language can be a challenging and frustrating experience at times. You come to accept that everything in your day-to-day life, absolutely everything, is going to be more difficult. Sometimes this is a fun and exciting challenge and sometimes you want to pull […]

Chicago Cuisine
Chicago Cuisine

I am now entering my 9th week here at Accenture in Chicago. I have had many opportunities to explore the city of Chicago, as well as the different food offerings. Below are my top 7 places to visit on your next Chicago visit. Warning: Do not read this if you are hungry! 1. Chicago Style […]

Living the Chicago Life
Living the Chicago Life

I have only three more weeks before I head back to Columbus! The summer is flying by and soon enough we will all be back for football Saturdays and late study sessions in Mason. One of the great things about an internship is not only the exposure to new work but the chance to live […]

Rapid Rides
Rapid Rides

I hear the low rumbling of the rapid transit approaching and my standard leisurely stroll becomes a full out sprint, and I flail and stumble to the rapid station in my suit and heels. I avoid eye contact with the amused passengers, slide sheepishly into a seat and breathe a sigh of relief as I […]

Alec Baldwin!
Alec Baldwin!

One of the many unique things about this internship at the Met Opera Guild is that there is a Professional Development aspect.  Every Wednesday, a small group of us meets to discuss whatever reading or PD exercise we may have been assigned for that week.  Most recently, we discussed chapters of Outliers: The Story of Success by […]

Lessons of Culture

Just two weeks into my internship, I have already had to quickly adjust to the subtle differences of working and doing business in another country than my own. Brazilians, at least everyone that I’ve met, are very friendly people, hardworking, and fun-loving. Just as you or I. But there are a few specific differences in […]

East Coast Weekend Trips

Living in Ohio my whole life and really travelling only to Florida, east coast living is different, to say the least.  Some people here act like I’m from some foreign country or anything instead of just Ohio.  There are lots of things I don’t know though.  Like pork roll….it’s a breakfast meat, who knew?  But […]

A $300 Mouse
A $300 Mouse

I recently got a new tablet. This makes me grateful for the work-life balance that is emphasized here in the world of Corporate Finance.  I love being able to leave work and then being able to take a few hours to sit in front of the computer doing what I want– namely, drawing recently. This […]

Building a Network While Roaming
Building a Network While Roaming

This past weekend I competed in a scrimmage through GCRA (Greater Columbus Rowing Association) along with one of my teammates from Ohio State. The majority of the members of GCRA are people that are out of college with full time jobs, some further along in their career than others. Anyway, during some downtime at the […]

Consulting in the City of Lakes
Consulting in the City of Lakes

A key part of the consulting experience is being at the client site and the Deloitte Consulting Summer Scholars are no exception. This summer, I’ve been staffed on an engagement in Minneapolis, MN, the City of Lakes. Last Monday, I arrived at the city for the first time and have been impressed all week. First, […]

Irish Business Environment vs.the States

Ok. I’ve been typing and deleting my openning for half an hour already. So I decide to stop wasting time and just jump into my topic: the difference between irish business environment and the States. 1. Irish Business tends to be smaller. People might argue with me becasue there are also plenty of small businesses […]

Need. More. Sleep.

I genuinely thought that my summer was just going to be a lot of relaxing and sleeping. Of course, things don’t always go as planned. I knew that I would be spending 8 hours a day, five days a week at work and that my internship would be stimulating and busy, but I didn’t think […]

Today we venture into the dainty world of Corporate Finance Life at Key Tower in Cleveland, OH.  We shall begin with the environment. The Environment Populated by humans, the environment of the Corporate Finance world is conducive […]

“Switzerland” Week 2 – Konstnaz, Germany
“Switzerland” Week 2 – Konstnaz, Germany

Most of the weekend was spent in the Alps. We rode a cable car up Mt. Pilatus, just outside of Lucerne, Switzerland. On the ride up you have the opportunity to get off and ride down a hill in an “Alpine Sled,” which is essentially a 1-man bobsled with wheels on a metal chute. On […]

Team Fortress 2
Team Fortress 2

Hello! One thing that I find myself consistently doing every evening after work is playing a video game called Team Fortress 2.  It is an online team based first person shooter game, and I like it for the silliness, the graphics, and the overall gameplay.  Oftentimes, the players are whimsical and the weapons are silly. […]

Vague Clothes and Who Knows?
Vague Clothes and Who Knows?

As the week is slowly coming to an end (can you believe it’s already Friday?!), I contemplate many things.  Among the many things, one rises above all others– the question of “Huh?” For example, this is my first internship where I have to be business professional all days of the week.  The past four days have […]

It All Started With a Mouse

My HR Professor shared with us a quote that (I am horribly paraphrasing) like this, “I blinked and I found out twenty years have flown by.” It’s been a hectic, but amazing four months working at the Walt Disney World Resort. While I still have three more months to go, I have some final thoughts […]

FAQs about Disney CP

I get a lot of questions about my program everyday at work. Here are just a few of the most commonly asked questions about the Disney College Program. What are you doing? I am currently on a semester long internship with Walt Disney World working in the parks and resorts in hopes of getting into […]
