Recruiting while Working while Going to School

I often joke that I don’t know what “hobbies” are now that I’m in school part-time while working full time. Of course that’s not completely true, I’ll always find time to go hiking and to scope out the newest gelato store in San Diego where I currently live, but it’s true that there are less free hours in the day. Which is why, it’s daunting for many part-time students to think about setting aside any time or mental capacity for recruiting, when they are already balancing work and school (and keeping alive children or pets).

Setbacks and victories in my internship (thus far)

You might be thinking that it’s too soon for an update from my last blog post here. Perhaps you have a point; it’s been only a week since I last posted on Tepper’s blog and started my internship with TurnUp Activism.

This is evident in my years of Yelp Elite status where I’ve written over 300 reviews on the platform. b) I had a great internship experience and would love to share it […]

Getting summer under my wing

Picture this: it’s April, and you’re a junior. While your friends seem to all have summer plans lined up, you’re scrambling for an internship while trying to finish your second to last year of undergrad strong. If you’re me, you don’t need to imagine. That was my spring semester until I got a message on […]

How to survive MBA internship recruitment season

Mini 3 at Tepper is, famously, a hectic time for first-year MBA students. January thru March is peak recruiting season for summer MBA internships. Coming off the heels of a long and relaxing winter break, it can feel a little jarring to be thrust back into balancing classes, interviews, and club activities (not to mention […]

Analytics only get you so far

I’m going to say something a little controversial: Tepper’s analytics didn’t come in handy this summer. I benefited most from my one-on-one coaching with Accelerate, network of peers, and Managing People & Teams course.
