Don’t Forget About the People

Due to the fast-paced nature of most internships, networking often takes a backseat to the completion of job-related tasks. I am not criticizing this truth, for the main purpose of internships are to gain work experience, and, perhaps, to prove one’s worth to a company. I am, however, suggesting that taking even a few minutes…

I completed my first internship this summer. I was grateful to have received and accepted an internship offer.

Why UBS has a great culture

When I applied to the wealth management internship at UBS, I didn’t think that I would actually end up moving to Miami for the summer. Transitioning to Babson from India was already a huge process in itself. I didn’t know if moving to another city for just three months was really going to be worth…

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…

5 Reasons Why Startups Are Stealing The Best Talent

L Marks Working at NatureBox for the past three weeks has been an absolute whirlwind of new experiences. But admittedly, while I was driving to my new home in Silicon Valley, I was wondering what all the fuss surrounding the startup culture was truly about.

Navigating Company Culture

There are actual studies on how culture can make or break a company. It’s crazy, right? Who knew that witty and quirky job titles, cold brew kegs and themed employee dress up days could be conducive to generating profit? According to Forbes, “When we talk about corporate culture, we are really talking about your organization’s…
