Google Analytics

I love Google Analytics so much. We used it briefly in my Managing Information Technology class in the spring semester, and to be honest, I never thought I would use it again. That is, until, we were having a slow day at the office and I, without any active projects to work on, asked if…

SF SVP Silicon Valley Trip!

This week our SVP teams ventured to Silicon Valley and toured 500 Startups, Facebook, and Google! The treks introduced everyone to the entrepreneurial ecosystem outside of San Francisco. It was an immersive experience and each location had their own unique personality. In fact, many compared Facebook to Disneyland and immediately noticed Google’s convenience in making mundane tasks…

The Not So Pretty Side of a Start Up

A week before I was scheduled to start working with a start up in New York City this summer, I received a call from the founder and he informed me that they could no longer financially afford a full time intern. This is something no one would be happy to hear, but especially a college student…

The Brazilian Silicon Valley

When I was looking for internship opportunities, I did not have an exact idea of what I wanted in mind. I was interested in trying anything that would allow me to put into practice what I learned on my freshman year, as well as to learn new things. Despite that, I knew for sure that…

Day One Internship

On the first day of my internship, my boss sat me down and talked to me about my aspirations and hobbies. I really appreciated this because it showed me that she cared about the advancement of her company as well as my individual advancement. This made working with her so much more comfortable for me.…
