The GSM started a series of blogs from some of the first-year students completing their internships this summer. So, if you are interested in learning about a particular functional area, check these blogs out!
Hi! Long time, no blog! I must admit, the posting on the blog is slow this summer, so please accept my apologies about that! However, I thought this would be the case — it’s summertime! Half of the regular posters have now graduated, and the other half are super busy with internships. And then there’s me. I’m one of those busy with an internship, but also very busy with the California Women Business Leaders study.
Whew! I just finished the first week of my internship at Agilent Technologies. What a great experience so far. Before coming to school, I worked for a small commercial real estate investment firm with 12 employees. Now I am interning at a multi-national, publicly traded company with thousands of employees across the world. What a difference a year makes.
Prior to coming back to school, I had a lot of expectations. I purchased a new suit, dress shirts, ties and dress shoes. I subscribed to the Wall Street Journal, watched MSNBC and brushed up on my current business events. I wanted to be the picture of professionalism, but my expectations were way off.
Yesterday was a big day! And it all began in September! Let me explain. Keith, fellow 1st-year (not to mention famous), and I were talking when school first started, back in the yore of September 2008.
