5 Tips to a Successful Vendor Appointment

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, in the off-price industry for retailers such as Ross, maintaining positive relationships with your vendors is the most important part of forming a concrete foundation for your business. Without these relationships, the vendor will never have you in mind when they suddenly have a cancelled shipment of higher-end merchandise […]

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 […]

Halfway Already?

It’s been quite a while since I’ve documented any part of my internship experience — but at least if I say it’s because the last few weeks have been a whirlwind of learning on the job and exploring Los Angeles and southern California, I’m not lying.

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 […]

Halfway Done Already!

I cannot believe I have already finished week six of my internship!! Time is flying by! It’s crazy to think that I only have six weeks left and then I head back to school. But over these past six weeks I have learned more than I ever have before in such a short period of […]

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 […]

When in Doubt, Brunch it Out
When in Doubt, Brunch it Out

Things are definitely kicking up at Ford!  The days go by so quickly–maybe because I’m working with Quick Lane…I am not sure if I mentioned this already, but my project this summer is all about Quick Lane.  Quick Lanes are light repair and maintenance centers, but are for all makes and all models!  Bring your […]

Where did that month go?!

I cannot believe that I am already done with my first month of my internship. It has flown by! This month has been full of new experiences from learning how to be efficient in meetings to networking at out of office events. All in all, it has been a fantastic experience. One main thing I […]

Excelling in Excel…Not Quite!
Excelling in Excel...Not Quite!

As you might be able to tell from the title of my post, I’ve been using Excel a TON so far in my job!  At least 85% of most of my work days consist of analyzing and constructing spreadsheets!  That being said, the skills learned in my freshmen CS&E class that I struggled through are […]

Already Finishing Week 2!

I can’t believe I have already finished my first two weeks with ArcelorMittal – time is flying by. The most exciting part of week 2 was that I finally got into a daily routine of projects and tasks I can do. My title is Associate Financial Analyst – Intern but as of right now, I […]

First Week at Goodyear!
First Week at Goodyear!

Hi everyone! I’m Annie, about to be a junior studying human resources  (make time stop please?) I have just completed my first week as an HR intern with Goodyear in Akron, OH! One word can sum up my first week: overwhelming. But, overwhelming in the best way! From meeting everyone in my office, finding my […]

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 […]

Finance Bootcamp at JNJ

I’d just like to say I know the abbreviation is technically J&J, but I personally like typing JNJ since it’s a) easier to type and b) Johnson and Johnson’s ticker.  …Yep, that was my announcement… ha! Wow, long time no update!  Sorry about that!!! I decided to make a vlog for this entry, woot woot! […]

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 […]

So. Much. Glitter.

Have you ever noticed how ubiquitous greeting cards are? Neither did I until I started working for company behind the most widely traded greeting cards worldwide.  Cards are everywhere, though, when you think about it, and I bet you can name at least 15 grocery stores, convenience stores, or pharmacies where you could pick one […]

Always Learning

One thing my mother has always taught me is that you’re never finished learning. This has been absolutely true for me this summer during my internship at Votorantim Cimentos. I would like to say that I walked into the office on day one with all the knowledge and tools necessary to complete my project but […]

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 […]

Learning the ropes…
Learning the ropes...

After hearing some of my peers’ horror stories about internships and being warned to be careful to find one that doesn’t waste my time, I must say that I am beyond pleased with my first three weeks at the Met  Opera Guild. (Wait…Has it really been three weeks?) And let me tell you: I have learned […]

Holy Time Management

Meetings on meetings on meetings.  We have meetings to talk about our last meeting and when to hold our next one.  My typical week consists of no less than 30 meetings.  American Greetings? More like American Meetings. The majority of these meetings are held to discuss one of the twelve projects I’m juggling at any […]

Accenture 101

I am pretty sure this is cheating, but this a partial repeat blog post from my internship last summer. However it is the new and improved version! Since I am working for Accenture again this summer a lot of the material isn’t completely new and foreign especially when it comes to the structure of the company. Accenture is […]


“Area of Refuge,” reads a sign above the entrance to the stairwell on the sixth floor.  When I first noticed this sign, I had visions of exasperated interns suddenly throwing all of their papers and pitch books into the air and bolting into the refuge, maybe to return.  Since my deceivingly quiet and unquestionably hilarious […]

Day In and Day Out
Day In and Day Out

I have entered my third week of work and am starting to finally grasp the project, client, and team. It is a relief that I can now execute some of the same procedures and policies shown to me the first few days on my own. This internship has already been exceptionally challenging because everything is […]

Figuring out the Phone and Other Things

I’ve finally feel settled in at work now. I can navigate my way around the half of the floor that I work on, only once this week did I turn into someone’s cubicle thinking it was an aisle. I got access to Oracle, but only to 2 out of the 3 departments that I will […]

Rocking Out in the Bullpen
Rocking Out in the Bullpen

After almost two weeks on the job, I now have a much better understanding of syndication, and I was right. It IS fancy. And I probably should get some nicer suits. KeyBanc Capital Markets is definitely doing its part to ensure that its eager interns are getting hands-on, intensive experiences. I have helped prepare materials […]
