Vague Clothes and Who Knows?
Vague Clothes and Who Knows?

As the week is slowly coming to an end (can you believe it’s already Friday?!), I contemplate many things.  Among the many things, one rises above all others– the question of “Huh?” For example, this is my first internship where I have to be business professional all days of the week.  The past four days have […]

Packing is like a game of Tetris..

It’s true. Packing is a game of Tetris. As I sit in my hometown of Howland, Ohio, I’m glad I took this internship, but not so glad I’m packing. Working for Ford Motor Company, specifically the Lincoln brand will prove to be an exciting time. A lot of interns are already on site and are […]

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 […]

Could you have a sleep disorder?
Could you have a sleep disorder?

I have now finished most of the work I have been doing for the sleep lab at the hospital. I gave a presentation to the Director of Cardiovascular, Cardiopulmonary and Sleep Medicine at HVCH and presented to him my ideas for advertising, website updating, etc. It was nerve racking to prepare for, but well worth it! He was […]

Excitement in Ireland
Excitement in Ireland

Here is a small list of things I’ve done around the office as well as Ireland the past few weeks: 1.  Helped train some of the newer workers how to do some basic tasks regard the technologies used at Equinoxe Technologies from the accounting module we use called Invest One,  our Transfer Agency platform used for […]

That’s some good Craic!
That's some good Craic!

I have to say, since I’ve been in Dublin, I’ve seen sports in a whole new light.  I don’t have a TV and there is a huge time zone difference, so the only way I can stay up to date on sports in America are looking at scores and articles on ESPN.com.  Being a sport […]

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- […]

Just another day at the office…sort of
Just another day at the office...sort of

When you think of the phrase, “just another day at the office” what do you typically think of? Desk work? Meetings? How about field trips? Last week, I had the luxury of going on two field trips, yes they happen after elementary school at real jobs too. I was able to visit the two main […]

Fun Things to do in Houston
Fun Things to do in Houston

It had been just a few short weeks in Houston but I already felt like I was making serious headway when it came to fitting into the Southern culture. Let’s face it, in the past few weeks I had discovered and devoured Tex Mex food, tackled the biggest plate of the best BBQ in Houston […]

If you want something done right…
If you want something done right...

you have to do it yourself. That was one of my grandfather’s favorite sayings, and it is now taking on a whole new meaning with me. As I mentioned before, I have been assigned the task of developing a Key Performance Indicator report for our GIP team. After finally deciding what metrics we wanted to […]

Give My Regards to Broadway……
Give My Regards to Broadway......

….Remember me to Heralds Square…. So this past weekend I went to NEW YORK CITY with the other interns for a concept shopping trip and it was SO AMAZING. Our flight left Friday morning at 6:15 am and arrived in New York around 8:30.  We drove straight to the Abercrombie & Fitch 5th Avenue Flagship store and were […]

NESTLE: Good Food, Good Life.
NESTLE: Good Food, Good Life.

  Taste Testing- My title couldn’t be more accurate.  Nestle is 150% providing me with a summer full of “Good Food and Good Life”.  About three weeks after I started working at Nestle this summer I finally went downstairs to the basement to participate in the daily taste testing of our potential new products. Since then, […]

What is a Hedge Fund?
What is a Hedge Fund?

Did you know according to some estimates that at the end of 2010, there was over 2.8 Trillion dollars worth of assets under administration or that there are nearly 12000 hedge funds?  Do you even know what a hedge fund is? Before I blog about anything that I actually do at Equinoxe, there are probably […]

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 […]

Taking Physical Inventory
Taking Physical Inventory

Wear jeans and a tshirt, expect it to be very hot, bring snacks, and know you will be working overtime! Sound intimidating? These were suggestions for me before I went on my first physical inventory.  I was sent to Orriville, OH to a warehouse that Scott’s owns to audit our inventory held there.  Traveling with […]

Accenture 101
Accenture 101

When I tell my family and friends I am interning with Accenture, many of them have never heard of the company or they just see it was a Consulting firm. They are always asking “What exactly do you do?” So from now on when someone asks, I will direct them to this blog! Many people […]

The Finance Fair
The Finance Fair

Week two for me turned out to be a real change of pace.  Here at Whirlpool it was finance fair week and I was on the team that won best booth last year and was determined to do it again. What is finance fair you may ask?  Finance Fair is an annual event like a […]

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 valuable learning experience…
A valuable learning experience...

My internship in sales has been quite an eye opening experience. While many people enjoy sales, I did not…at all. It just wasn’t for me.  So, rather than being miserable all summer pursuing something I knew I would never want to do again,  I decided to end my time there and try to figure out […]

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 […]

My “Grown Up” Summer
My "Grown Up" Summer

Well I think to safe to say I have had a crazy week!  Three Finals, moving out of my dorm room back to Cincinnati and then to home for the next ten weeks, Pittsburgh. Monday June 13 8:30am, I entered the “Real World”. This summer I am interning for Accenture as an Associate Consultant. My […]

Time to SUMMERize
Time to SUMMERize

Wow, what a summer! I have had so many amazing experiences during my internship, but I want to use this blog to share some advice, advice I have gotten this summer, and advice just from me!  Don’t worry, I’m planning a blog full of pictures of fun and excitement, so I won’t be ending things quite yet.  […]

Non-profit vs. For-profit: An Intern’s Perspective
Non-profit vs. For-profit: An Intern's Perspective

Before this summer, I had two other internships.  During my sophomore year, I worked at the Ohio Community Service Council, a government agency, with the Make A Difference Day Ohio program.  Then, last summer, I interned at Time Warner Cable in the Customer Service department.  Needless to say, I have had three very different experiences!
