Landing the Internship: Reflection

Written by    Mar 26, 2019

I’m thrilled to share that I’ve accepted an internship with Paycor in Cincinnati this summer. I’ll be working with their internal communications team on multiple initiatives and helping to plan Paycor’s annual sales kickoff. I couldn’t be happier, and I am so thankful to my parents, mentors, peers and professors who have helped me through this process. It looks simple and easy when students start […]

How to Nail Your Next Phone Interview

Written by    Feb 11, 2019

Many first-round interviews for internships take place over the phone. They’re more informal — you don’t have to dress business professional or even leave your room. Often, the recruiter tells you more about the position and wants to learn whether or not you’d be a good fit for the role. But a phone interview lacks nonverbal cues: the opportunity for a firm handshake, eye contact, […]

The importance of networking

Written by    Oct 24, 2018

“Networking” is a term you never hear until college, and when you do hear it, it seems vague at best. Personally, I didn’t think networking made sense; how am I supposed to actively “network,” and is that really what’s going to present opportunities to me? Aren’t my jobs and experiences going to come from going to career fairs, handing out my resume, and completing applications? The truth […]

How to “do it all” and still get 8 hours of sleep

Written by    Jul 31, 2018

College is overwhelming. There are lots of opportunities that you are encouraged to try, lots of difficult classes that take up much of your personal time, and not as much money in your pocket as you are used to. Trust me, I get it: I am currently a pre-med double major who works two jobs, volunteers each week, studies for the MCAT and serves as president […]

If you have a student with a disability in your class and they request a note-taker, any classmate can do it. All you do is take thorough notes […]

Where, Oh Where, Has Rylan Been?

Written by    Apr 10, 2018

Hi Y’all! It’s me, Rylan. Yes, I’m alive(?)! I’ve been a little absent from the blog this semester, and I wanted to explain why. Hopefully, in the process, I might also shed some light on the possibilities of student life at OSU and the art of being busy (which are both more apt topics than me simply venting about my routine). Here’s what I’ve been up […]

Ohio State Job Board

Written by    Feb 20, 2018

I may be a second-semester senior, but I’m still learning about new resources that Ohio State has to offer. For example, I recently learned about the job board on Ohio State’s Student Financial Aid website. Many employers both on- and off-campus post their job openings on the website, so it’s a great place to find jobs to apply for. You can filter it to show […]

Internship Mindset

Written by    Feb 14, 2018

Hiya there, pals! Last week I celebrated (read: solid head nod) my first month-iversary with my internship. Okkkkk, technically I also interned for the same company over the summer, but I took a break last semester. And, this is my first time holding down an internship while also taking a full course load of classes. As a junior prematurely gaining graduation anxiety, I’ve found myself […]
