Asking questions to further one’s education

While interning at Surfdog Records, I not only strived to learn at work, but also researched the industry outside of the workplace. One way I was able to learn more about the industry was by reaching out to people within the industry via Linkedin. I often searched for people that had some valuable knowledge about…

I have been attending Curve, a lingerie and sleepwear trade show here in New York for two days now and my main take away is to never burn bridges with anyone. Over the past few days, a countless number of attendees have approached my mentor and the one thing she told us interns, is to…

Post-Graduation Planning

Throughout my Babson career, I have not managed to find exactly what I want in my career, but rather a lot of what I don’t want. So when I’m at a cookout and a family friend asks me what I want do when I graduate, it can be a difficult question to answer. I start…

You can network with peers too!

The first day of an internship can be a frenzy. First, you meet your new boss, then you get your cubicle, then IT sets you up, and so on. It’s both exciting and overwhelming. And it’s all set up to make sure that you are able to excel throughout your internship. In addition to all…
