My Fisher Internship
What I Do
Team Fortress 2
Team Fortress 2

Hello! One thing that I find myself consistently doing every evening after work is playing a video game called Team Fortress 2.  It is an online team based first person shooter game, and I like it for the silliness, the graphics, and the overall gameplay.  Oftentimes, the players are whimsical and the weapons are silly. […]

Less Painful Shoes (Second Day)

Hello! It’s a wonder what a less painful set of shoes can do to impact your impression of the day.  Today I wore a pair of TOMS shoes on the trek to the workplace from the parking garage.  Then, right before entering, I switceroo’d and wore my professional shoes for the rest of the day. […]

Reflecting on my Summer at Shell
Reflecting on my Summer at Shell

My Experience Looking back on my summer in Houston, it’s hard to believe how fast it flew by. I mentioned in an earlier blog that I had four major projects to work on and complete and at first it seemed a little overwhelming. All of my projects were fairly lofty and I quickly realized that […]

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 […]

FAQs about Disney CP

I get a lot of questions about my program everyday at work. Here are just a few of the most commonly asked questions about the Disney College Program. What are you doing? I am currently on a semester long internship with Walt Disney World working in the parks and resorts in hopes of getting into […]

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 […]

Is there such a thing as typical?

To follow a timeline because I know all the bloggers this summer have been blogging like crazy so posts are a little delayed – I have 1 week left of my internship. With 3 weeks to go I felt I was at crunch time, now with 5 days to go I have a presentation to […]

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, […]

Meeting with the CEO in my 6th week? HOW COOL!

Occasionally I will see Mike Jeffries, the CEO of the Abercrombie & Fitch Brands, around campus. His building is about a minute walk from mine and therefore, it is not surprising to walk by him in the cafe’ or for him to hold the door open for you. It is really cool to be able […]

Excel at Excel.
Excel at Excel.

Excel at Excel.  That is my greatest suggestion for all Fisher students.  Because it was required for my Finance major, I took the CSE 200 course that everyone seems to dread–including myself!  I never thought I would say this, but I wish there was a sequential CSE course for business students or at least I […]

A Rolling Stone…

gathers no moss.  And moss, metaphorically, is the bane of a driven, action-oriented intern. I had mentioned in my other post “How to succeed in business…” that things had slowed down for me a little bit here at OCLC.  I had wrapped up a few projects and there were some projects that were getting underway […]

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 […]

Fees, Fees, and more Fees
Fees, Fees, and more Fees

With my previous blog briefly describing what hedge funds are, I can now describe how the company I’m interning with, Equinoxe, ties into hedge funds.  Equinoxe, as I have said before, is a hedge fund administrator, and after working here for a few weeks, I finally know what that entails!  Most people say that the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pixie Dust, Princesses and Pirates. Oh my!
Pixie Dust, Princesses and Pirates. Oh my!

So much has happened since I got down to Disney and I have so much to say in such little time! I’ll try my best to really describe everything in the coming weeks. For those of you who haven’t been keeping up with me on Facebook or in real life, I work at the World […]

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 […]

All work and…play!
All work and...play!

The biggest fundraising weekend for the Hocking Valley Community Hospital Foundation is now over. While the weekend events required much planning, the actual weekend proved to be really fun – not only for those attending as guests, but also for everyone who works at the hospital that worked the event! Overall, the hospital’s foundation raised just […]

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 […]

My 12-hour Monday
My 12-hour Monday

…An Early Morning So this week I had to be at Home Office at 6:45am on Monday morning to prepare for our Monday Morning Selling Meeting with our VP, Gillian. In our Monday Morning Selling Meetings we present the selling information for how our newly set items sold over the weekend.   I thought I would not […]

I think I am getting the hang of this
I think I am getting the hang of this

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 […]
