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. Specifically, I had the opportunity to work with the Events & Program…

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

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…

Going With the Little One

One of the things that I value most is diversity of experience. Going through a wide range of challenges and incidents better prepares me to handle anything that I may encounter in the future. That’s why this year I decided to intern with the small non-profit, IMPACT Melanoma. Last summer, I worked for a very…

A Babson Education Makes All The Difference

This summer I am working at my first internship where there are also interns from other schools. This has shown me how vastly different my education has been from theirs. I feel as though I have learned so many great skills that extend beyond the classroom at Babson that the other interns do not have.…

Now I Know I’m Sure

When you start searching for an internship or new job you obviously want to look for something that will help lead you into a career you really want to be in. Last year I didn’t feel like I was lucky enough to find an internship like that, but this summer that’s all changed. I’ve known…
