Throughout my internship search and even during my internship, I quickly learned how unpopular a career in government and the public sector was among Babson students. Most of my classmates would rather lead a fruitful career in…

My summer internship in New York City was a great learning and growing experience. I was able to go out of my comfort zone by living on my own in a new city. I think it’s a necessary experience that every rising senior should pursue before graduating college. I was able to explore the career…

Not Goodbye, But See You Later

As I wrapped up my last day on the internship, I had many memories and experiences flash in my head throughout the day. It seemed as though that just yesterday, I was the “new kid” having to be taught how to do everything. Now, I was finishing up my last memorandum for the Congressman regarding…

Working as a team over email and in person

From the start of my internship at Moda Operandi, a luxury e-commerce retailer, I began communicating with the other members of the Trunk Show/Merchandising Department. Email, and more specifically gmail, is the most commonly used method of communication at Moda’s office. All of the 100 or so employees use email, but only about 15 of…
