Typical Day (with Batman)

With 9 weeks down and 3 to go, I can’t believe how the summer has flown by!  It feels just like yesterday I was studying for finals and hanging out on the Oval beach.  However the amount of information and knowledge I have attained during my internship is immeasurable.  From excel shortcuts to souring and […]

Killing Time Between Work

One of the things about working in a service industry is finding yourself working very untraditional hours. Even for my leaders, some of them work 7am-4:30pm, 11am-9:30pm, 5pm-2am and even third shift! At the World of Disney (and Walt Disney World), there is never a time when someone is working. That being said, our schedules […]

Average AG Day
Average AG Day

Everyday I carpool with three other interns to American Greetings headquarters in Brooklyn, Ohio.  Once at my cubicle, I check my emails, see what times my meetings are for that day, and then go and wish my manager a good morning.  We then discuss my plans for the day consisting of meetings and projects, and […]

Hi again! Well…it officially has been four weeks since I have started with the External Reporting team and I am in full swing of the 10-K annual report filing for Cardinal Health. I have been assigned to compile numbers/data for footnotes, financial statements, and conduct various searches of money transfers for the legal department. It […]

How To Succeed In Business…

… by really REALLY trying. One of the things that has been interesting for me as an intern, starting on the date that I did, was that I came in at the close of FY11, our fiscal year 2011.  As such, there were a ton of projects being wrapped up, and that meant that they […]

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 […]

“Are you in charge of us?”

One of the interesting things about being the HR intern this summer at OCLC has been my interaction with the other interns.  The positions in our program range from finance, to legal, to digital collections, to web marketing and more.  And of course, HR. Being that I’m the HR intern, I’ve had my hands in […]

Going LEAN

The first two weeks at Accenture has been busy, eventful, and great! Lots of readings, learning, acronyms and handshakes. However the information I am learning is very applicable not just to school, but also my future. My role at Accenture is ultimately a training position for next summer (fingers crossed). I am on a fast […]

Places you HAVE to eat in NYC #10-6

New York is turning me into a foodie.  Sure, I’ve always appreciated a good meal.  My mom comes from a line of talented Italians, and my favorite memories of being abroad in Scotland and London are all punctuated by the meal I had immediately before or following.  But really, New York, this is getting out […]

The Joys of Interning

Dear Readers, It’s been a wild two weeks for me. I apologize for not updating earlier. This past week, at GE Aviation, they took time out of everybody’s schedules to talk about health, and what everybody can do to stay healthy. Working at a big company means that these semi-related to work things are always […]

Week 6: Monday August 10th-Sunday August 16th This week I spent most of my time at the New York Film Academy where I take classes.

“Never mistake motion for action”
"Never mistake motion for action"

Week 3: Monday July 20-Sunday July 27 Fairly slow week, but every day I get insight from conversations with people I work with that is shaping my career plans and life goals. Ernest Hemingway said “never mistake motion for action.” I love this quote and it seems relevant to this week and this post. Just […]
