Selling 101
Selling 101

I never knew selling chemicals could be so much fun. For the past two weeks I have been shadowing account managers at Univar, traveling to big name customers all over northeast Ohio. Meeting so many different people and learning about their backgrounds and the industries they work in has been fascinating, as well as all the […]

A Day with Ernst & Young
A Day with Ernst & Young

During my internship with ArcelorMittal, I am lucky enough to attend two Leadership programs put on by Big 4 accounting firms. My first was Ernst & Young’s Emerging Leaders Program. The two-day event took place during the second week of my internship so I was a little nervous about taking two days off so early […]

The Traveling Intern
The Traveling Intern

During the beginning of the week I traveled down to our 26 acre facility in Cincinnati and was lucky enough to observe the company conduct an environmental, health and safety audit first hand. One thing that is extremely important, especially in this industry, is protecting the environment as well as ensuring the health and safety […]

My Buckeye Network
My Buckeye Network

My whole life I’ve been a huge Buckeyes fan and was beyond excited to be accepted into graduate school at Ohio State because that meant I would be an actual part of the buckeye family! Really, I just couldn’t wait to experience the athletics here and all the great sports teams Ohio State has. But […]

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 […]

Meeting with Mark Fields
Meeting with Mark Fields

This week, the marketing interns had the opportunity to chat with Mark Fields, president of The Americas at Ford Motor Company. He offered us some advice that applies not only at Ford Motor Company, but also in our daily lives: Feedback is incredibly important. As tough as it is to hear, it’s best to know […]

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. […]

Pay it Forward!
Pay it Forward!

This Friday I had the privilege to visit the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus with fellow KPMG interns for a little community service.  We brought new books for the kids and read to them – or in my case, let them read to us! After reading to the kids, we helped them paint their […]

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 […]

Tip #3: Find a Mentor, Be a Mentor

It is imperative as an intern to find a mentor – not only to help you build your network and stay in touch after your internship, but also to maintain sanity during your internship! I am lucky to have several mentors here at KPMG already.  One of the great things about the company’s internship program […]

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 […]

Stress Stinks, Arrid Works (when put on)
Stress Stinks, Arrid Works (when put on)

“Oh yea, I didn’t put on deodorant today, hmmm…. hopefully that’s not an issue.”–thoughts I think during a meeting LUCKILY I don’t think it was an issue (whew!) ….Anyone remember that really corny yet unfortunately catchy Arrid commercial, by the way?? Here’s a video to jog your memory. Whenever I think of stress, I always think of […]

Tip #1: ALWAYS be prepared!
Tip #1:  ALWAYS be prepared!

From this point forward, I’ll be posting tips and takeaways from my experience, so here goes #1… On Monday afternoon, I stepped into the hotel elevator to ride down to our opening day session of National Intern Training (NIT).  There was just one person in the elevator already - KPMG’s Deputy Chairman and COO, Henry Keizer.  […]

Reflecting on my Summer at Shell
Reflecting on my Summer at Shell

My Experience Looking back on my summer in Houston, it’s hard to believe how fast it flew by. I mentioned in an earlier blog that I had four major projects to work on and complete and at first it seemed a little overwhelming. All of my projects were fairly lofty and I quickly realized that […]

Informational Interviews and other resources
Informational Interviews and other resources

This summer has been flying by (a little too quickly, I might add)!! As I continue my internship at the hospital, I have also been researching different career paths to follow in marketing. I’ve been researching online and have also been talking with people who have experience in the field of marketing. I know this isn’t directly related […]

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 […]

Words of Wisdom

Hi all!! As a Cardinal Intern, we have what is called “Speaker Series,” which entails attending presentations given by senior leaders of the company. The exposure we get from the series is pretty amazing, considering many full-time employees have never even met these executives. The topics range from the health care industry in general, health […]

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 […]

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 […]

A semi is no longer just a semi

I’m already a third of the way done with my internship in Supply Chain at Dow. First off, that’s hard to fathom, the time flies by! So what have I actually been doing at work? It’s a question I get a lot from family and friends, as well as many co workers at Dow. Dow […]
