Calling All Silent Entrepreneurs

Calling all quiet-thinking employees, steady behavioral tendencies, and the introverted extroverts who strive, day after day, to make a lasting impression: I have a question for you.

Unpaid Internships Are Worth It

I work really hard at my job. I go in early, leave late, ask everyone in my department if they need help, and if it’s a busy day, I’ll even offer to go get coffee.

At that point, the one place I was really hoping to work for this…

My Take on Business Students

An Inside Look at Investment Banking

My name is Hannah Kim, a rising junior at Babson College. To start off my blog, I will start by talking about how I got my summer internship.  My internship search was long, stressful and it was one that required much persistence.

The Impact of Positivity

During my internship at Ardsley I always take the initiative and dive into tasks with a positive attitude. For example, a couple of weeks ago my advisor told me to complete some research pertaining to renewable energy investment. I took the initiative and created an organized, well researched report on my findings. A week later I found out…
