Networking…Why is it Important?: An Intern’s Perspective

Whether you work for an organization that is small, big, or somewhere in between, there is one thing every student—both undergrads and graduate students, regardless of their field of study—should be doing during their internship: networking.

Exploring Careers and Corporate Cultures

Before starting my internship at Endeavor Brazil, I did not expect that that by knowing people who do not work at Endeavor, I would be able to know different career paths and companies so closely.

Expanding your Network

As a rising junior, I’m guilty of feeling as though I have all the time in the world to network in order to find a job after graduation. That was until I encountered a woman on an express bus while on my way to work who sparked up conversation with me. It started with her complimenting…

Last Minute Trip to Dallas

While doing laundry last Saturday I received this text message from my boss at State Traditions: 1:35pm: George – would you be available to catch a flight to Dallas this afternoon to attend the Dallas market show? We have run into a bit of a problem with our crate and have to get product to…

What People Don’t Tell you Before Starting Your Internship

Going into this summer I expected to be working for a Commission under the Connecticut government. Less than a week before my start date I received an email saying the governor had cut the Commission out of the state budget and my internship was now not available along with all the other people displaced from…
