Shifting Focus

  This summer flew by. Last week I presented my final project and wrapped up my internship with Univar, and I can not put into words how valuable my time there has been. I am wiser and much more focused on my future goals, and I am so thankful for the opportunities, guidance and help […]

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 […]

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 […]

The final presentation!

I can’t believe my internship is finally coming to an end! It’s been a rollercoaster, yet it’s been incredibly rewarding! My final presentation consisted of recommendations and in-depth analysis of new technologies. I was working hard doing practice presentations for several managers and some of my coworkers as well to obtain some feedback and I […]

Pushing to the End

In my final weeks at Ford Motor Company, I found myself working a lot of long hours doing some intense analysis. I created my own project looking at up-and-coming technologies and I wanted to make sure I covered every base. I began by working out what I wanted to solve. I set up a framework […]

Helpful Hints

Coming into the 10th and final week of my internship at Exel, I thought that I’d give a list of advice that I learned while interning this summer.   Always have a pen and a notebook with you. I don’t know how many times I might be walking from a meeting or sitting at my […]

Words of Wisdom
Words of Wisdom

Throughout the Summer I have been on different calls with different facets of the company, as well as had a team that was not afraid to share their thoughts. Throughout the summer I jotted down words of advice that really resonated with me. Words of Wisdom from around the office: Happiness is most important and […]

Meeting with Mark Fields
Meeting with Mark Fields

This week, the marketing interns had the opportunity to chat with Mark Fields, president of The Americas at Ford Motor Company. He offered us some advice that applies not only at Ford Motor Company, but also in our daily lives: Feedback is incredibly important. As tough as it is to hear, it’s best to know […]

How Does My Time At OSU Relate?

I don’t know about anyone else, but this is something that I used to always wonder while in class at OSU.  I used to sit there and think “I don’t see how any of this is ever going to help me”.  And now I feel that I finally have at least a partial answer. First, […]

Don’t show up empty handed for the meeting!

“Mengjia, let’s go to the meeting……” my supervisor just called me and asked me to attend their weekly meeting. This is coming so fast. First of all, I’ve never seen an all-employee-together meeting before and I’ve already been here for four weeks. Second of all, what do they need me for? I just stood there […]

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 […]

Balance
Balance

So far I feel that I’ve learned one big thing and it comes back to something my dad always says, “everything in moderation”.  Don’t get me wrong, I have worked my butt off so far and really think my managers have noticed.  However, I also know that I wouldn’t be able to keep up such […]

Meetings, Meetings and more Meetings
Meetings, Meetings and more Meetings

I’ve met a great deal of people thus far and it’s only the start of week two. Stuffed inside the Regent Court building are thousands of employees from all different backgrounds, working in all different fields. I think the most nerve-wracking experience thus far has been attending meetings. I always thought commenting in Schoenbaum 105 […]

A little advice
A little advice

Today was my first day at Ford Motor Company, which meant a ton of information being thrown my way during orientation! We had an opportunity to learn about the company policies, do’s and don’ts and everything in between at World Headquarters. The most beneficial part of orientation was talking to a bunch of current FCG’s […]

Informational Interviews and other resources
Informational Interviews and other resources

This summer has been flying by (a little too quickly, I might add)!! As I continue my internship at the hospital, I have also been researching different career paths to follow in marketing. I’ve been researching online and have also been talking with people who have experience in the field of marketing. I know this isn’t directly related […]

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 […]

Words of Wisdom

Hi all!! As a Cardinal Intern, we have what is called “Speaker Series,” which entails attending presentations given by senior leaders of the company. The exposure we get from the series is pretty amazing, considering many full-time employees have never even met these executives. The topics range from the health care industry in general, health […]

Midway Point in Midland

Countdown continues, my summer in Midland is already half over, meaning 5 weeks to go. Although I have only had 6 weeks of having an internship within the corporate field I feel I’ve picked up a few good tid bits of advice I can share: Know what time zone people are on: making an international […]

Movin’ Out

It’s been about a week or two since I’ve arrived in Orlando to participate in the Disney College Program and the one lesson that I’ve learned is to take logistics seriously! You would think that most of the difficult work involves apply for jobs, going through interviews and waiting for a job offer, but I […]

Hello Full-Time…bye bye boss?
Hello Full-Time...bye bye boss?

As I began to transfer back into a full-time roll here at Mettler, I anticipated doing much of what I did last summer – designing and running reports, conducting RFPs (a bidding process for suppliers who want our business) and helping resolve travel issues for our multitude of globe-trotting employees. Boy was I in for […]

My Final Hoorah.
My Final Hoorah.

Hello Fisher, As you know, summer is winding down. Ohio State has already won their first couple of football games, Brett Favre is back for one more year, and the Reds are dominating the National League (kinda).  Well now is my time to give you one last blog post.  First of all, thank you so […]

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.  […]

Easy Access.. To Execs!

If you’ve ever wondered what the office of a CFO looks like, well, I can answer your question.  Lots of windows, an enormous but beautiful desk, some comfy looking chairs (I haven’t actually had the VIP invite to sit in one of them), a big meeting table, and shelfs filled with family pics and memorabilia.  Oh, and […]
