My Fisher Internship
Most Important Thing I Learned
Shifting Focus
Shifting Focus

  This summer flew by. Last week I presented my final project and wrapped up my internship with Univar, and I can not put into words how valuable my time there has been. I am wiser and much more focused on my future goals, and I am so thankful for the opportunities, guidance and help […]

Saying goodbye to ArcelorMittal

My time with ArcelorMittal was better than I could have ever planned. I stepped into the internship with zero knowledge of the industry and limited knowledge about accounting, yet I never was afraid of failing. Every person I met did their best to help me to understand more about their specific position with the company […]

“What did you learn this summer?”
"What did you learn this summer?"

I just have 4 days of my work left at my internship, and before I leave, I am required to give a final presentation, on which I will be assessed for a full-time job offer. Scary. My presentation is Monday, August 5, but I also have to have a final meeting with my supervisor about […]

Adieu to You, Sweet California!
Adieu to You, Sweet California!

Cue the sappy music now–my summer with Ford is coming to an end.  I can’t believe my summer in California is almost over.  I spent the past two weeks tying up loose ends to my summer project and working on my final presentation–and I can honestly say I am so sad this is over!! I […]

5 Tips to a Successful Vendor Appointment

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, in the off-price industry for retailers such as Ross, maintaining positive relationships with your vendors is the most important part of forming a concrete foundation for your business. Without these relationships, the vendor will never have you in mind when they suddenly have a cancelled shipment of higher-end merchandise […]

Mission Impossible: Rebranding an Entire Store in Just 1 Week
Mission Impossible: Rebranding an Entire Store in Just 1 Week

Most Marketing majors will never get the opportunity to rebrand a product during their summer internship, but I had the privilege of helping re-brand the Dublin Giant Eagle and re-open it as the brand new Dublin Market District. So far in Ohio there was only one existing Market District in Upper Arlington, now we have […]

How to Survive in Retail: 101
How to Survive in Retail: 101

If there’s one thing you need to know about retail, it’s that it never-ever ends.  When you work in a Grocery Store that is open 24 hours a day, you realize that your 8-4 workday is more or less a guideline. If retail was a city, it would be New York; the city that never […]

A new appreciation for health care
A new appreciation for health care

I started to feel like I was truly settled in this week. A few coworkers, another intern and I traveled to New York to visit Kinray, a company that Cardinal Health acquired 3 years ago. Kinray is a pharmaceutical and generics wholesaler for retail independent pharmacies and is headquartered in Queens, New York. During the […]

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 […]

When in Doubt, Brunch it Out
When in Doubt, Brunch it Out

Things are definitely kicking up at Ford!  The days go by so quickly–maybe because I’m working with Quick Lane…I am not sure if I mentioned this already, but my project this summer is all about Quick Lane.  Quick Lanes are light repair and maintenance centers, but are for all makes and all models!  Bring your […]

First Week at Goodyear!
First Week at Goodyear!

Hi everyone! I’m Annie, about to be a junior studying human resources  (make time stop please?) I have just completed my first week as an HR intern with Goodyear in Akron, OH! One word can sum up my first week: overwhelming. But, overwhelming in the best way! From meeting everyone in my office, finding my […]

So many Interns!
So many Interns!

The past two days, Exel has put together a program for all of their interns, including interns not working in the Exel Americas headquarters in Westerville. I got to meet interns from the operation side that work in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. Overall, I think that it was a very well run and insightful program. […]

Always Learning

One thing my mother has always taught me is that you’re never finished learning. This has been absolutely true for me this summer during my internship at Votorantim Cimentos. I would like to say that I walked into the office on day one with all the knowledge and tools necessary to complete my project but […]

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 […]

Take your child to work day
Take your child to work day

Remember Take Your Child to Work Day? Yeah. Let those memories just come pouring in for a second. Being on the opposite side of the equation – the side where you’re not the one running to the supply closet every ten minutes pretending to be your mom or dad’s oh-so-necessary personal assistant for a singular […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

Where DOES the time go?

Ask me that question, and I will have absolutely no answer for you.  This is the wrap-up of my 10 weeks here, and it feels like I started yesterday!  Is it because I’ve been having fun?  You bet! This experience has broadened my horizons more than I had thought possible.  Although I’ve had experience in […]

Words of Advice

The past twelve weeks have been more than I could ever ask for. I have personally grown so much and more than I could ever imagine. Whether it was learning new technology or about the business world, I know that learning will never be the same for me. My favorite part of the summer was […]

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- […]

See ya later, not goodbye!
See ya later, not goodbye!

Hello Hello, So my days at Cardinal Health are finally coming to a close :-(. I will be wrapping up my time here on Friday, September 9th. I can’t even believe how fast these 12 weeks have flown. It feels like yesterday I was just stepping into the office, using my ID badge wrong, and feeling beyond confused by this […]

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, […]

If you are an aspiring business major or are currently in Fisher, you know that one of the most dreaded pre-requisite classes is CS&E 200 (Computer Science & Engineering).  For those of you who do not know, this class teaches the ins-and-outs of Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. When I took the class, I took […]
