My Final Weeks

Today was my last day with the Melanoma Foundation of New England. I had an awesome experience with my first internship. The entire office was great to work with, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for non-profit experience. During the last few weeks the three interns started to fall into more defined roles.…

The Last Day of Work Blues

Today is my last day interning for Viacom, and I find it to be a very bittersweet experience. As I made my way to work this morning I found myself in deep thought as I reminisced about all the great times that I’ve had working this summer, and all the great people I have met…

Last Day

Today is my last day at Hope and Comfort. I can’t believe that my summer internship is already over and that my senior year is just around the corner. My internship has been such an amazing learning experience. Not only did I enhance my technical skills, but I also gained a lot of confidence in…

A Mentor Inspires

I am so lucky to have had the best mentor anyone can ask for. Julie Burgardt is the digital manager at Araks, an entrepreneur, and the person who I worked most closely with. This summer, Julie has taught me valuable lessons that I will bring with me to all my future jobs. The first is…

Learning to Leverage Technology

Technology is a vital tool to many students, career professionals, and organizations.  Without technology, many things within my organization will not function properly.  However, with all of this technology, I have learned that a firm understanding of it is essential. For example, retail stores may have certain technologies which track many different metrics throughout the…

What do I do with my Life?

Going into my internship, I was set on pursuing a career in finance.  After taking several finance classes throughout my semesters at Babson, I enjoyed most of them, however, several days into my internship, I quickly realized that it wasn’t for me.  At least, in this particular setting, it wasn’t for me. The finance team…
