WRITTEN BY: BRANDI PROCHAZKA We have all been there – that feeling of being excited and nervous, hands sweating, and not really sure what to expect.

Internship Vs. Summer Job

WRITTEN BY: NATE CURTIS “Should I get an internship?” That’s the question I asked myself every year in college as I started thinking about what I was going to do each summer.

Benefits of a Mentorship

WRITTEN BY: CHELSEA PAYNE Throughout history, some of the greats were mentored by the greatest. Without their mentor, who knows where they or even the rest of us would be today.

If you’re not prepared, it’s easy to get bogged down in self-reflection. Your mom says you have a dry […]


Google Your Business

WRITTEN BY: ISAAC SCHMIDT I often feel lucky that I can find an answer to any question that strikes my interest by simply asking my phone to search it or by typing it out. In this age of information, it seems that there is something to learn about everyone and everything. The search engine becomes […]


Getting the Most Out of Your Internship: Do the Small Things

WRITTEN BY: ANNA BOWLAND I’ve seen it happen many times: the beginning of the internship is filled with energy and enthusiasm, but by week four, the tasks seem boring and tedious and the countdown is on for Friday. What was once an exciting opportunity that you vowed to make the most of is now just […]
