Idle Hands are the Devils Workshop

Somehow I seem to always find myself in internships where I constantly do not have enough work to do. I am one of those people who would rather be stressed out with too much on my plate, than nothing to do. So it is very difficult for me to sit at a desk day after…

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…

Taking the Initiative: Dirty Bathrooms and All

“I just wanted to let you know, that the ladies room is disgusting.” Hot blood crept under my skin, burning my face to a plum red as the woman backed away from my ear, quickly turning to exit the restaurant. Mortified, I contained my urge to sprint into a brisk walk, imagining all the possible…

Steps to Finding the “Perfect” Internship

A search for an internship is kind of like a Mission: Impossible movie but less Tom Cruise and more disappointment. Same amount of stress though. From the beginning of spring semester, I knew that I was already behind on finding what to do for summer 2017. While many of my peers had already secured internships…

Welcome to Babson

Dear Families, Congratulations!  You must be so proud of your daughter/son that will be matriculating to Babson this fall.  That is quite an achievement. In my own experience as a parent, sending my daughter off to college was filled with both excitement and trepidation.  I wondered how she would function on her own?  Would she make…

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.…

The Wrong Job Can Point You To The Right One

Last summer I went through the worst possible job experience. But although it wasn’t right for me, it was invaluable because it showed me exactly what I don’t want in a job. A majority of what I didn’t like had little to do with the job itself. Instead it was all the little aspects that…

INTERNSHIPS! RESUMES! MILLENNIAL-LIFE CRISIS! RATRACE! BUZZWORDS!

I hope everyone is having a great summer so far. My name is Kit and I’m a (soon to be) sophomore at Babson this coming Fall. Prior to Freshman year I spent 2 years in the Air Force, where I learnt many important life lessons. For example, how to look busy when you’re not. Over…
