My Fisher Internship
Networking
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 […]

I’m already 1/4 of the way done with my internship?
I'm already 1/4 of the way done with my internship?

Week Three.                 This week I have really dove down and achieved some good progress on my projects.  I’ve learned how to successfully sort several thousands of rows of data in excel, and then analyze and interpret the data in order to deliver a final presentation that will show all of my findings next Tuesday […]

Three P’s
Three P's

So much happened this week at American Greetings that I will break it down into three categories: projects, people, and places. Projects: My manager gave me the outlines for my projects.  I am in charge of compiling line lists (lists of merchandise, in our case, cards), making sure the forum  (the card display room) is […]

Recalculating
Recalculating

Recalculating….the earth-shattering, panic creating word I heard again and again throughout my first week in Houston. Although my trusty Garmin had gotten me through the 21 hour drive to Houston, it seemed that lately, in the 100 degree heat, it had become just as disoriented and out of place as I had. Despite being directionally […]

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 […]

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: […]

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 […]

My Final Hoorah.
My Final Hoorah.

Hello Fisher, As you know, summer is winding down. Ohio State has already won their first couple of football games, Brett Favre is back for one more year, and the Reds are dominating the National League (kinda).  Well now is my time to give you one last blog post.  First of all, thank you so […]

Officially a Nerd: Part II
Officially a Nerd: Part II

“My Doodle Jump high score is 78,050! Beat that!” Yep, that’s an e-mail I received shortly after the conclusion of Time Inc.’s Reverse Mentoring program, which has been one of the highlights of my summer.  While my mentee wishes to remain anonymous, I can reveal that she is an amazing executive at the company who […]

Connecting the World
Connecting the World

Coming fresh off our (Greater Cleveland Sports Commission) last event, the 2010 Cleveland Clinic Sports Health International Youth Sports Festival, it was time to bring it once again for our next international sporting event (see my post below for details on that event).  From July 21-24, I had the opportunity to work as an integral […]

Working on the Wings
Working on the Wings

Now that I’ve gotten the hang of my job estimating for the interiors group, I realize it’s pretty simple, and consequentially pretty boring.  The projects that I am building estimates for are basic, non-technical changes happening to the interior of the aircraft.  So to find something more stimulating, I walked over to some neighboring cubicles […]

Hello blog buddies! I owe you some pea pictures, and here they are! Here are some fun pea facts: -Once peas are ready, you have 24 hours to harvest them -Since the window to harvest peas is so small, people harvesting peas will spend up to 20 hours in the fields a day! -You drive […]

A TRUE Cultural Experience
A TRUE Cultural Experience

Coming off my first time working an event with the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, I have to say I am unbelievably shocked at the amazing cultural and memorable experience I had last week.  From July 1-4, the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission hosted its own, authentic event, the Cleveland Clinic Sports Health International Youth Sports Festival.  […]

The Importance of: 91
The Importance of: 91

People are starting to get on me because I have not posted in a while. 91 people to be exact. 91: the number of interns working at Cardinal Health this summer.    And they are 91 of the most ambitious students I have ever met; from Harvard to the University of Chicago and Notre Dame to […]

First Days in Dublin, Ireland
First Days in Dublin, Ireland

I may never leave Dublin. My ideal type of weather is a football Saturday in the middle of October and the weather in Dublin is very comparable, even in July.  While the weather in the United States was approaching 95+ degrees, Dublin was at a very comfortable 65 degrees (18 degrees Celsius) every day last […]

Springfield, Illinois: Lincoln, Horseshoe Sandwiches, and Auditing
Springfield, Illinois: Lincoln, Horseshoe Sandwiches, and Auditing

Springfield, Illinois is known for being the city where Abraham Lincoln, one of America’s greatest Presidents, got his start in politics.  It is also said to be the place where corn dogs were created (although that claim is disputed), and is the home to the famous Horseshoe Sandwich. I had the great privilege of sampling […]

Hi Everyone! I know I owe you a blog on my projects and my work life, but I just gotta let this blog out first! What did you do Monday night?  I had to work late.  With Nestle, it never ends, well, the fun never ends.  My buddy and I went to a Ludacris concert […]

The New York Stock Exchange: One Week in Heaven
The New York Stock Exchange: One Week in Heaven

If anyone would have told me that the first person I would meet last Monday morning would be the 70′s/80′s rocker known as Meat Loaf, I would have told them that they were crazy!! I don’t even know where to start when discussing my week at the New York Stock Exchange. First of all, how […]

Training, networking, and life in NYC.

I’ve managed to complete the first two weeks of my internship, and so far I have nothing but good things to say about Deloitte and NYC.  The first week was basically an introduction to the culture of Deloitte.  As far as I can tell everyone seems to be very helpful.  So far they have stressed […]

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 […]

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 […]
