While it may be exciting that you get to network with a bunch of professional adults, you need to do some preparation beforehand.

The Internship is Over, Now What?

Last week I finished my internship at Deloitte Israel where I had an incredible experience. The people I met, the places I went, and the work I did was so amazing I could have never imagined it. But now that I am not going to work every day at 8:30 and I am about to…

Excel in Excel

Hi all, thanks for tuning in. So, I spent the last week migrating over our internal reporting and metrics SaaS offering from Excel to, at first, R, then Python. There is some pride in the fact that the workflow eventually shifted from Excel- to Python-intensive. I like to think that my Excel-bonded peers are living…

From all of these experiences, I have gotten my share of coffees in addition to getting my share of feedback from managers. From those experiences and feedback, I have come up with a few things that can set you apart…

Always Know What Makes You Productive!

I’m a strong believer that it’s impossible for the majority of youngsters these days to figure out what they want to do with their lives and how they want to live it. Therefore, doing internships is one way to not only discover what you like, but more about what you don’t like. And I know…

Don’t Stress, You’ll Figure it Out

Like most rising seniors, the panic surrounding what I’m going to do after graduation is in full swing. Some people enter Babson knowing the industry, job title, and even company they want to work for in the future. They work hard, secure those connections, and are set up with a full time job before they’ve…
