I am now entering my 9th week here at Accenture in Chicago. I have had many opportunities to explore the city of Chicago, as well as the different food offerings. Below are my top 7 places to visit on your next Chicago visit. Warning: Do not read this if you are hungry! 1. Chicago Style […]

Living the Chicago Life
Living the Chicago Life

I have only three more weeks before I head back to Columbus! The summer is flying by and soon enough we will all be back for football Saturdays and late study sessions in Mason. One of the great things about an internship is not only the exposure to new work but the chance to live […]

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 […]

The Discover Culture

One of the things that has really struck me about my work at Discover is the aura friendliness and helpfulness.  Since day one, Discover has been a very relaxed and fun place to work, which is not at all how I thought it would be.  I really thought it would be more like this.  However, […]

Take your child to work day
Take your child to work day

Remember Take Your Child to Work Day? Yeah. Let those memories just come pouring in for a second. Being on the opposite side of the equation – the side where you’re not the one running to the supply closet every ten minutes pretending to be your mom or dad’s oh-so-necessary personal assistant for a singular […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I lived through my first California earthquake!
I lived through my first California earthquake!

Well, the time has come-I’m all packed up, my last day of my internship is tomorrow, and I just checked the weather for the first time this summer (Ohio is much more unpredictable than California).  AND Mother Nature was kind and didn’t want me to leave without experiencing an earthquake, so on my 2nd to last day- […]

Window Washing and Weed Wacking
Window Washing and Weed Wacking

Time is really starting to fly here in St. Joes.   Throughout the summer there have been many   ways to get involved.  One of the groups that I have taken the most interest in is the Young Professionals Network (YP!)  here at Whirlpool.  Over this past week there was an  event – YP! Reach 100.  The […]

NESTLE: Good Food, Good Life.
NESTLE: Good Food, Good Life.

  Taste Testing- My title couldn’t be more accurate.  Nestle is 150% providing me with a summer full of “Good Food and Good Life”.  About three weeks after I started working at Nestle this summer I finally went downstairs to the basement to participate in the daily taste testing of our potential new products. Since then, […]

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 […]

Could life be any better?
Could life be any better?

Four day weeks: Very much so appreciated when you’re working full time!  We had a 4 day week last week because of the 4th of July and this week we have another one (sort of) because Nestle is holding an “Offsite Logistics Event” this Friday at Universal Studios.  I don’t know that much about the […]

I’m already 1/4 of the way done with my internship?
I'm already 1/4 of the way done with my internship?

Week Three.                 This week I have really dove down and achieved some good progress on my projects.  I’ve learned how to successfully sort several thousands of rows of data in excel, and then analyze and interpret the data in order to deliver a final presentation that will show all of my findings next Tuesday […]

True Life: Lexi Merritt went to Vegas.

Vegas.  Yes, as crazy as this sounds- It’s true.  My nice, laid back, relaxing weekend I was planning on having turned into a trip to Vegas with another Nestle Intern, Kelly Sipple!  We met one of my really good friends from Virginia in Vegas for a night!  Everyone who really knows me knows that this is […]

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 […]

People of the Subway... aka New York's Finest

** In order to take these pictures, I had to stay extremely incognito, stealthy, and inconspicuous.

Work hard, play harder… Duff & Phelps Projects
Work hard, play harder... Duff & Phelps Projects

My fellow Americans, Quick run down since the last post: Competed in Duff & Phelps first annual Vending Machine Challenge. Challenge consisted of eating one of every item in the vending machine during the work day. Let’s just say after 6000 calories and 250 grams of fat, I thought I was going to die. Dinner […]

Life in Seattle
Life in Seattle

I am steadily working on my long list of things to do while here in Seattle.  I live about 10 minutes away from downtown, and there is always an abundance of restaurants, bars, shows, and concerts to go to.  This past weekend though I took a trip out of downtown to Mount Rainier. My girlfriend […]

The New York Stock Exchange: One Week in Heaven
The New York Stock Exchange: One Week in Heaven

If anyone would have told me that the first person I would meet last Monday morning would be the 70′s/80′s rocker known as Meat Loaf, I would have told them that they were crazy!! I don’t even know where to start when discussing my week at the New York Stock Exchange. First of all, how […]

Bring your Child to work day!
Bring your Child to work day!

Today was BYCTWD (bring your child to work day.. great official abbreviation huh? ha-ha).BYCTWD has probably one of the coolest days here at The Dow Chemical. NO, it is not only because of the free cookies, ice cream, candy or food nor the relaxed atmosphere that surrounds the day, but is the opportunity of explaining to […]
