The Opportunity of a Lifetime in San Francisco! PART 2

After a competitive application process in the fall of 2017, a group of twenty-four selected undergrads this January embarked on their “Semester Away” in San Francisco. Two months in, the cohort has made countless amazing memories from their adventures in the City by the Bay. I am really excited to count myself among these students,…

San Francisco’s Been Pretty Cool So Far! PART 1

Being that there are no San Francisco natives in the cohort (Gauthier excluded), there was a Golden Gate sized learning curve to living in this strange city. The three-hour orientation on what goes into compost, recycling, and trash was a whole new world to us east-coasters. But in all honesty, this city is a place…

The Power of a Thank You Note

As my internship ended this week, I contemplated the best way to leave a mark of my appreciation with my managers and coworkers. I came to the decision that I would bake cupcakes and write thank you notes for them. At lunch on my last day, I brought out the cupcakes in little ribbon-wrapped boxes…

Cross-Departmental Internship Lessons

As I look back on my internship experience from this summer, I have noticed a common thread between all of my past internships. With each position, I have taken away important lessons from cross-departmental collaboration. This summer at IMPACT Melanoma was no exception.

The Purpose-Driven Internship Experience

In my time at Babson, I have learned a lot about the different factors of a business. I’ve taken classes on marketing, finance, innovation, management, economics and more. It can be incredibly interesting to see all of the work that goes into creating and growing a company. However, during my abroad experience this fall, I…

The Light Bulb That Is Networking

Throughout my life I have always been told time and time again how important it is to network. When I was in high school it was to network to get me into a good college and help me with recruiting for college sports. When I finally entered my first year at Babson it was FME driving…

Making an IMPACT

At the beginning of my search for a summer internship, I didn’t even consider working for a non-profit. I was thinking a large financial firm, a cutting edge sports company, or an innovative start-up. Something flashy. However, I have found my time at IMPACT Melanoma to be rewarding in more ways than one. The small…

The Culture of a Small Non-Profit

People often talk about the drastic change in culture between college and employment. It makes sense that the transition from one of the most free times of your life to a desk job at a “collared shirt and tie” company can be difficult. However, I have been lucky enough to find myself working jobs with…

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…
