My Fisher Internship
Positive Attitude
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 […]

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 […]

“Confusion, Concern, & Set Up for Failure”
"Confusion, Concern, & Set Up for Failure"

The title of my post sounds a lot like something Joan Rivers would say on Fashion Police on E!; however, it actually refers to an email that was sent to me regarding one of my tasks I had been working on! “Sending it out to the Field Specialists as is would likely lead to confusion, […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

A euthanizing shot

I did the dumbest thing this week. Another intern and I were asked to help videotape the top 5 finalists of an innovation contest going on within Cardinal. We shot the video as the finalists prepared to present their idea to a panel of senior executives. While prepping one of the finalists, we joked about […]

My Great American Road Trip, and First Day Jitters
My Great American Road Trip, and First Day Jitters

Five days and some 2,250 miles later, I’ve arrived in Los Angeles to begin the first of my nine weeks with Ross Stores, Inc. My drive was anything but boring: my brother and I left Columbus in search of some of America’s greatest landmarks, like the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, MO and Grand Canyon […]

A Week To Remember
A Week To Remember

My first week with Univar can be summed up in three words: overwhelming, exciting and eye-opening. From the first day I walked through the doors of the Strongsville distribution center, I was caught in a whirlwind. From meeting all of the employees and my program mentor, touring the Cleveland facilities, going through new hire training, […]

Mixed Emotions
Mixed Emotions

I’m excited to have moved to a new city and start an amazing internship. I’m nervous about being in a new place and worried what will happen if I don’t perform well. I’m eager to learn more about the Human Resources field and meet new people along the way. I’m a little sad and missing […]

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 […]

Greetings from Marysville!

I have now spent nearly 6 weeks interning at the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company’s (collectively known as “Scotts”) corporate headquarters located here in Marysville, Ohio. Its’ location is about a 30 minute drive from Ohio State, but I was fortunate to be able to rent an apartment only 10 minutes away from Scotts. I still have over 4 months left, as […]

Approaching the Finish Line

As I prepare to start my last week of the internship with KPMG, I find it important to take a minute to look back over the last eight weeks with the company and decide if public accounting, the Big Four, and KPMG specifically is the right career path for me. I was chatting with a […]

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 […]

The Best Advice I’ve Ever Received

It’s week six here at Ford Motor Company and I’m doing better. There are peaks and valleys when it comes to anything that you do and I’ve been through plenty of peaks and plenty of valleys. Rather than sit and get frustrated, I’m taking the advice of one of my mentors. Do something extraordinary. I’ve […]

Tip #2: Be Patient
Tip #2:  Be Patient

Let this be not only an internship tip, but also a life lesson… I am hands down one of the most impatient people on the earth – ask any of my friends or family members.  Therefore, being asked to complete tax compliance work for a client while navigating new software and complex systems all on […]

My First Day
My First Day

Hi Everyone! My first day at KeyBank left me utterly exhausted.  Initially, our orientation had four people, giving me the mistaken impression that the internship pool at Key was small.  To my surprise, when we took our picture, it looked as if the pool was 50+ strong!  This was very exciting, and I got to […]

Moving Out!
Moving Out!

Hello everyone! On Monday at 7:30 AM, I will need to report to Key Bank HQ to begin my internship! Thus, I’m happy to report that I am moving out! Sayonara to those days filled with playing Team Fortress 2, browsing Reddit, and goofing off with abandon; I am now heading off to Cleveland from […]

The Challenges of Working Abroad

As June ticks away I am still sitting here in Columbus anxiously waiting to get to my summer internship. I am set to work in the finance department at Votorantim, a Brazilian industrial conglomerate based out of São Paulo, just as soon as I get through all the red tape. If nothing else, my experience so […]

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 […]

Finance Intern Event: Harvard Case Study
Finance Intern Event: Harvard Case Study

One of the events planned for finance interns at Scotts is a case study project and presentation. We had to block off most our schedule for this day because we only had those 9 hours in a workday to complete the case! There were four of us all together: two accounting majors, one finance major […]

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- […]

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, […]

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 […]
