The Traveling Intern
The Traveling Intern

During the beginning of the week I traveled down to our 26 acre facility in Cincinnati and was lucky enough to observe the company conduct an environmental, health and safety audit first hand. One thing that is extremely important, especially in this industry, is protecting the environment as well as ensuring the health and safety […]

Always Learning

One thing my mother has always taught me is that you’re never finished learning. This has been absolutely true for me this summer during my internship at Votorantim Cimentos. I would like to say that I walked into the office on day one with all the knowledge and tools necessary to complete my project but […]

Find the iron
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 […]

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- […]

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, […]

Switzerland Week 1 – Nänikon-Greifensee
Switzerland Week 1 – Nänikon-Greifensee

My first week in Switzerland was a real learning experience. I was introduced to different aspects of both business and private European culture. The first thing to always remember is bring a map or directions. After sitting on a plane for 8 hours I had to haul my luggage 5 blocks (which turned into 8 […]

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 […]

Give My Regards to Broadway……
Give My Regards to Broadway......

….Remember me to Heralds Square…. So this past weekend I went to NEW YORK CITY with the other interns for a concept shopping trip and it was SO AMAZING. Our flight left Friday morning at 6:15 am and arrived in New York around 8:30.  We drove straight to the Abercrombie & Fitch 5th Avenue Flagship store and were […]

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, […]

After the Dust Clears

It has been almost three weeks since my boss resigned, and the dust is finally starting to settle. With no immediate plans to hire a new category manager, it looks like the new status quo is starting to solidify. Although reporting to two different people, one of which is on another continent, can be difficult […]

Next stop, Mullach Íde
Next stop, Mullach Íde

After finals, nearly all of my friends departed back to their hometowns and places where they were interning and left me by my lonesome in Columbus.  After working a few jobs the past three weeks to raise a little extra money and pass the time, I wasn’t nearly as excited as I should have been […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Settling In and Learning About Dublin
Settling In and Learning About Dublin

Well, it has been an exciting first week here in Dublin!  We were given the chance to settle into our apartments and explore the city before our internships start.  Our apartment complex is 3 miles Northeast of Dublin, and it is equipped with most amenities needed for our 2 month stay.  Each apartment has 4 […]

Dominican Republic Trip with HOPE International

We were able to sleep in today, Friday, because we didn’t have work. I’m flying out of PHL at six to go to the Dominican Republic so a few of the interns are planning a day trip to Philadelphia. I’m a bit sad because this is the last time I get to see several of […]

Cleveland Experience

I am writing this post after a ridiculously crazy week. It all started Sunday night when I drove to Cleveland to fly to Richmond, Virginia to perform a SAS 70 audit for a client. If you have any questions about what any of that means please feel free to contact me. After four days of […]

Hola everybody! My name is Catalina Lizarralde and I am a international student from Ecuador that has been living in the US for 19 months. I must start by saying that if something in my grammar sounds a little wrong, it probably is… but please bear with me… just imagine I am talking with an […]
