My Great American Road Trip, and First Day Jitters

Five days and some 2,250 miles later, I’ve arrived in Los Angeles to begin the first of my nine weeks with Ross Stores, Inc. My drive was anything but boring: my brother and I left Columbus in search of some of America’s greatest landmarks, like the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, MO and Grand Canyon […]

A Week To Remember
A Week To Remember

My first week with Univar can be summed up in three words: overwhelming, exciting and eye-opening. From the first day I walked through the doors of the Strongsville distribution center, I was caught in a whirlwind. From meeting all of the employees and my program mentor, touring the Cleveland facilities, going through new hire training, […]

First Day: Complete
First Day: Complete

Today I began my journey as an intern in the steel industry. I arrived at ArcelorMittal in downtown Cleveland at 8 am and was excited to meet seven other interns. However, after introductions I realized that all seven of them were mechanical and electrical engineers and I was the only financial intern. But, of all […]

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 […]

Tip #2: Be Patient
Tip #2:  Be Patient

Let this be not only an internship tip, but also a life lesson… I am hands down one of the most impatient people on the earth – ask any of my friends or family members.  Therefore, being asked to complete tax compliance work for a client while navigating new software and complex systems all on […]

Cannot believe my first week is done(scream…..lol)
Cannot believe my first week is done(scream.....lol)

Hey guys, I’m back to blog. I’ve been in Dublin, Ireland for two weeks already. Because of the design of the EUSA academic internship program, our first week is basically to have a brief interview with my supervisor and get familiar with the city of Dublin and its transportation system. I also did some sightseeing, which […]

5 Tips for Surviving the First Day
5 Tips for Surviving the First Day

It is safe to say that through my 16+ years of school I have had quite a few first days. You always pack your backpack, lunch, and pick out your clothes the night before. Do a dry run of walking to the bus stop and all your classes. Plus I never can get over those […]

Find the iron

I had a terrible first day at Deloitte Consulting. Now don’t get me wrong: my peers, instructors, and orientation program were great. What’s terrible is that I had to fly to Atlanta for two days of training with nothing but my laptop bag and the clothes on my back. A little background. My name is […]

My First Day
My First Day

Hi Everyone! My first day at KeyBank left me utterly exhausted.  Initially, our orientation had four people, giving me the mistaken impression that the internship pool at Key was small.  To my surprise, when we took our picture, it looked as if the pool was 50+ strong!  This was very exciting, and I got to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Settling In
Settling In

DAY 1 As I set out for my first day of work I could not help but feel very excited and a little nervous.  I was not totally sure what would take place during the day- Who would I meet?  What would I do?  Was I wearing the right clothes?  Should I bring a lunch? […]

Day 1: It’ll never be dull here!
Day 1: It'll never be dull here!

“It will never be dull around here” is what my manager has been telling me on day one.  The HR staff welcomed us with an invitation to a new conference room where they offered us a light and tasty breakfast as well as all this great information on Scotts’ benefits and facilities. Scotts has its […]

The First Day

Getting There My first rush hour! Not as bad as expected… Once I made it to the parking garage, the Cincinnati Police did us all a favor by rating the safety of everybody’s vehicles in the garage. By taking a peak in everybody’s cars they were able to assess the likelihood of getting broken into […]

That’s what I was having to learn for most of my first day…acronyms. My job title, listed up top, being one of the easier ones (Progressive Accounting Rotation Program – Progressive Commercial Auto unit). DWP, LAE, PIF, and CR to name a few others. Here is my timeline for a day in the life of a newbie: […]

Week 1- Wow! Since I’ve arrived in LA on Sunday night, June 12th I have… Rented an amazing SUV (brand new Ford Escape) paid for by Nestle for the next three months…I’d say that’s a nice little beach car :) Moved into an amazing apartment complex on the same mountain as the Hollywood sign.  Every […]

First Week at Basketball Ireland
First Week at Basketball Ireland

My first week at BI was an experience like that of anyone’s first week at a new job.  I took a lot of time to learn where things were in the office and got to know the staff.  I found out that two of my co-workers have played professional basketball in Europe.  I was very […]

First Week @ Boeing
First Week @ Boeing

My first week at Boeing has come to a close so I will give you all a short recap.  Firstly, I’ve deciphered what exactly my department (Pricing and Offerability Estimation) does: when a consumer wants to buy a plane from Boeing, they often want it customized to their preferences.  This can include special luxury seats, […]

First week: Check!
First week: Check!

I have had a good week. A great week, in fact. The week went fast after two days of training and many handshakes. The preparation for the first week was an important key. I prepared accordingly, typical questions that passed my mind were: What will I wear? What questions will I ask? Who am I […]

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with plastics, but I bet that no normal 21 year old has any idea of how big and complicated the business is in general. You see, the thing with The Dow Chemical Company is that it is big, I mean like Texas big! I am part […]
