Be available. It’s how you learn!

The nature of the creative advertising agency at which I work is that each strategist has a few accounts on which they work. To provide context for my readers, the team with which I work has two primary functions. First, we work on the strategic component of pitches to new clients. This includes everything from…

Steps to Your Dream Internship

Sarah, the forensic accountant by day and crime fighter by night. At least that’s what I’d like to think. This summer I have the honor of working with the US Securities and Exchange Commission as an accounting intern for the Enforcement division. Now that I’ve been a month in I’ve worked on a few different…

Here’s why I love Silicon Valley

Amazing weather, great seafood, and breathtaking landscapes. All of these are legit reasons to love Silicon Valley, but none of them is significant enough to prove my unlimited admiration for this place. The real reason I believe Silicon Valley is truly special is that people here are T-shaped. Before imagining some weird creatures, let me…
