Excitement in Ireland
Excitement in Ireland

Here is a small list of things I’ve done around the office as well as Ireland the past few weeks: 1.  Helped train some of the newer workers how to do some basic tasks regard the technologies used at Equinoxe Technologies from the accounting module we use called Invest One,  our Transfer Agency platform used for […]

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 […]

I lived through my first California earthquake!
I lived through my first California earthquake!

Well, the time has come-I’m all packed up, my last day of my internship is tomorrow, and I just checked the weather for the first time this summer (Ohio is much more unpredictable than California).  AND Mother Nature was kind and didn’t want me to leave without experiencing an earthquake, so on my 2nd to last day- […]

Is there such a thing as typical?

To follow a timeline because I know all the bloggers this summer have been blogging like crazy so posts are a little delayed – I have 1 week left of my internship. With 3 weeks to go I felt I was at crunch time, now with 5 days to go I have a presentation to […]

Traveling Business Woman
Traveling Business Woman

After all this talk about Physical Inventories, you may be able to tell that I have enjoyed these trips.  It is nice getting out of the office and walk around the warehouses and manufacturing plants to see our products in action.  It can as a surprise to me to hear about this third physical inventory, […]

Switzerland Week 1 – Nänikon-Greifensee
Switzerland Week 1 – Nänikon-Greifensee

My first week in Switzerland was a real learning experience. I was introduced to different aspects of both business and private European culture. The first thing to always remember is bring a map or directions. After sitting on a plane for 8 hours I had to haul my luggage 5 blocks (which turned into 8 […]

Fun Things to do in Houston
Fun Things to do in Houston

It had been just a few short weeks in Houston but I already felt like I was making serious headway when it came to fitting into the Southern culture. Let’s face it, in the past few weeks I had discovered and devoured Tex Mex food, tackled the biggest plate of the best BBQ in Houston […]

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 […]

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 […]

Food for Thought
Food for Thought

On my bus rides to and from work, I have been reading the book The 360° Leader, by John Maxwell.  In this book, he discusses why some organizations falter or don’t reach their potential.  One of the topics “THEY DON’T KNOW THE VISION. When it comes to results, there is absolutely no difference between people […]

Give My Regards to Broadway……
Give My Regards to Broadway......

….Remember me to Heralds Square…. So this past weekend I went to NEW YORK CITY with the other interns for a concept shopping trip and it was SO AMAZING. Our flight left Friday morning at 6:15 am and arrived in New York around 8:30.  We drove straight to the Abercrombie & Fitch 5th Avenue Flagship store and were […]

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, […]

Settling In
Settling In

DAY 1 As I set out for my first day of work I could not help but feel very excited and a little nervous.  I was not totally sure what would take place during the day- Who would I meet?  What would I do?  Was I wearing the right clothes?  Should I bring a lunch? […]

Dont be Late!

The previous spring quarter, I, along with some other students interning in Ireland had a class to prepare us for the different culture. One of the main highlights of the class was the fact that the Irish have a more casual work experience. Between what they wear, what they speak of at work, and their […]

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 […]

After the Dust Clears

It has been almost three weeks since my boss resigned, and the dust is finally starting to settle. With no immediate plans to hire a new category manager, it looks like the new status quo is starting to solidify. Although reporting to two different people, one of which is on another continent, can be difficult […]

Life in the Burgh
Life in the Burgh

After 4 weeks of living in Pittsburgh, it is safe to say I finally have a routine. I take the 71A bus in every morning and enjoy $4 lasagna on Wednesdays from Mama Lucia’s. I love having my own place and a city to be a tourist in. So below are some of my recommendations […]

Interns are treated like royalty

This past week, the interns at Cardinal had the luxury of being treated to an Intern Welcome Dinner now that all of the interns had officially started working. The dinner was sponsored by the CEO, George Barrett, which is a pretty big deal considering many full time employees have never even seen the man! All […]

“And I’m proud to say that I love this place…”
"And I'm proud to say that I love this place..."

Not a weekend or even a day has gone by when I haven’t had something to do. And I am definitely living in “small town USA.” Midland, MI – where Dow is headquartered – has a population of about 42,000 people yet there is never a dull moment. While I haven’t stayed in Midland for […]

Day 1: It’ll never be dull here!
Day 1: It'll never be dull here!

“It will never be dull around here” is what my manager has been telling me on day one.  The HR staff welcomed us with an invitation to a new conference room where they offered us a light and tasty breakfast as well as all this great information on Scotts’ benefits and facilities. Scotts has its […]

Can I Please Scooter to Work?
Can I Please Scooter to Work?

Yes you can if you work at the Abercrombie & Fitch Home Office in New Albany, Ohio. My first day of work as a merchant intern was on Monday, June 27th and it was AMAZING! I am interning with a class of 9 other students (5 from Northwestern, 1 from Dartmouth, 2 others from OSU and […]

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 […]

A Summer Break Before My Internship?
A Summer Break Before My Internship?

What more could a girl ask for? Well it is all over and done. After 3 final exams and a final project I am on summer break! I am so excited to have some downtime to spend before I start my internship with Abercrombie & Fitch on June 27th!  Until then I have three major plans.  I […]

A Summer in Mark Twain Nation
A Summer in Mark Twain Nation

Hey Everybody! As I begin to look back and evaluate my summer in Hannibal, a lot of emotions come to mind.  This summer has been one of extreme growth for me career wise and personally.  It has had its ups and downs, but I am confident in saying I have come out of it dressed […]
