The Perfect Card

How do you choose which thank you card to send when the recipients will be those you worked with at a company that makes thank you cards?  Moreover, how can I possibly find a card that says everything I want to say to my colleagues?  This card has a huge responsibility, to accurately convey the […]

Word of the week: “offer”

Offer. Offer offer offer. Offer, offer? Offer. For the past week I think I’ve heard the word “offer” more times than ever before in my life, and never has it been so loaded with anxiety.  This is the week when full-time offers will be given to the interns that American Greetings would like to have […]

What up, dorm life?

Nothing makes you appreciate the closet-sized room that you have on campus like sharing a one-person hotel room with a complete stranger for ten weeks. I guess we’re starting with the bad news first.  It’s true; my company has squeezed eighteen interns into nine rooms within an extended-stay hotel.  The rooms are as small as […]

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 […]

More like American Meetings. The majority of these meetings are held to discuss one of the twelve projects I’m juggling at any […]

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 […]

Greetings from American Greetings

After packing up my car, I headed to North Olmsted, Ohio, my destination for summer 2011. Moving into my hotel apartment was a little difficult, but after a couple hours, I was all settled. All the interns got together for a mini barbeque at the hotel’s gazebo. There are a few fellow buckeyes in my […]

From Beaches to Buckeyes
From Beaches to Buckeyes

Hi everyone! My name is Taylor Mandel, and I’m a second year majoring in Marketing at the Fisher College of Business. I grew up in Fort Myers, Florida. You are probably wondering, “why did you come all the way to Ohio for college?”  Well the majority of my family either went to OSU or are […]
