The Internship is Over, Now What?

Last week I finished my internship at Deloitte Israel where I had an incredible experience. The people I met, the places I went, and the work I did was so amazing I could have never imagined it. But now that I am not going to work every day at 8:30 and I am about to…

Wrapping Up

As the summer comes to an end, so does my internship with Saraswati Imports. I want to reflect on the summer and what I have learned from this overall work experience. There were a lot of little things that I learned that did not necessarily have to do with my job. This summer I was…

What is a Carrier Tape

I would like to share a particular industry that I have researched with the company that I worked for during my summer internship. Carrier Tape is a supplementary product for the electronic packaging industry. The tapes are mainly used as protective packages for electronic components, integrated circuits, and other devices. The tape serves as not…

Asking for Time Off

During my time at my internship I got into a program, had to ask for time off, and had no idea how to go about it. I feel like asking for time off is a nerve racking experience for most. You have to think about is my reason important enough? Will I have to make…

Friends in the Workplace

When I started to work at my internship I was very anxious. A lot of the people I was around were accomplished artists and creatives that I had admired for a very long time. Meanwhile the only recognized artwork I had was a framed drawing from my oil period on display in my parent’s basement.…

Excel in Excel

Hi all, thanks for tuning in. So, it turns out that impact investing is still investing. I spent the last week migrating over our internal reporting and metrics SaaS offering from Excel to, at first, R, then Python. There is some pride in the fact that the workflow eventually shifted from Excel- to Python-intensive. I…

Failing(?) an internship

My internship is coming to an end and I am sad to say that I fail it. Not with grades, for it is not FME. In real life and in this case, failing means that I could not achieve a goal I set to myself. In the case of the internship, my goal was to…

Internship Reflection

As I enter the last week of my internship, I am sending thank-you emails, meeting with supervisors, and taking in the last few days at the ballclub. As I look back on my summer internship, I am very pleased with the way it turned out. When I originally decided that this was what I was…

End My Summer With An “Internship” I Created!

Apart from working for 2 startups this summer, I “created” my own internship by working as a Director for SheCodes Hackathon, which is a project from NGO SEEDS Vietnam that aims to inspire women to step up in the STEM game. Plus, you don’t need to know how to code in order to participate!! SheCodes…
