Reflecting on my Internship Goals

As of today, I’ve spent two months at MainStreet Hammonton, and I’m more confident in my role than ever. Earlier in the week, my supervisor asked if I felt as though my internship has met my expectations before starting. Truthfully, my somewhat vague expectations were thoroughly surpassed. Because MainStreet is such a small organization, I…

How Do You Know if the Jobs a Fit?

I never thought I would be in sales. My concentration is operations, and my work experience has been in marketing, management, nonprofits, service, and logistics. Just last summer I was looking into human resources or supply chain work, yet I’m currently in a sales internship that I really enjoy, at a company I can see…

The Power of a Network

Internships are extremely competitive no matter what sector you are going into, so gaining a leg up on the competition is key to success. We work for hours on creating the perfect resume and cover letter (CL) that, frankly, can easily be lost among the hundreds of applications that recruiters must go through. In this…

Making Do with What You’ve Got

As I’m now wrapping up my second week with MainStreet Hammonton, there’s at least one lesson that is clear to me: in a nonprofit organization, you have to work with what you have. While this may be an obvious statement to many, I’ve never realized how this fact affects so much of a nonprofit’s work.…

Will There Be More Girls Than Boys Every Summer I Work??

Since the first work/volunteer-program I enrolled in during my sophomore year of High School, I have been outnumbered by women. I never minded the imbalance, but I’ve gotten more curious over time as to why there are less men who qualify for internships like mine. Part of the observation may simply be caused by the…

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…

Connections are Everything

I have been attending Curve, a lingerie and sleepwear trade show here in New York for two days now and my main take away is to never burn bridges with anyone. Over the past few days, a countless number of attendees have approached my mentor and the one thing she told us interns, is to…

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…

The Last Day of Work Blues

Today is my last day interning for Viacom, and I find it to be a very bittersweet experience. As I made my way to work this morning I found myself in deep thought as I reminisced about all the great times that I’ve had working this summer, and all the great people I have met…
