FUN!!!!

by Patricia on June 27, 2016

in Extracurricular

This week I did lots of fun things. I went to Six Flags with a friend on Wednesday despite the 90 degree weather! We tried to ride every ride we possibly could but we got too hot and tired. After that we went to Bread Co, and then we went home and slept and I watched Nexflix. The next day we went to Eckerts to pick blackberries. As soon as I got home I made a pie and my family loved it! On Tuesday I will finally see Finding Dory after a very long wait! Then I will go to Chesterfield mall, since I have not gone to all the stores yet. I will go to Vera Bradley and get a purse since I haven’t gotten a new one in years! I will also stop at the Cheesecake Factory and get Oreo Cheesecake. I love that place!

I really enjoy my new job at Nordstrom! Lately I have been thinking about going to Europe. However, I cannot work during the school year since I have an internship. I was thinking I could work again over Christmas break and then go on one of the trips that Fontbonne offers!

I am ready for this semester to be over. This time I had 3 group projects and 2 papers to write. On top of all that I have to study for 3 exams! Fortunately I do not have class this Friday and I am completely finished by next Friday. There is a raffle on Monday and I think that I have a good chance of winning. It is based on the number of seminars that I completed. I figured that most people would blow it off, since you have to commit to it every week. If I win, I will get $500. I deliberately did not make plans for this money because if I don’t win, I’ll just be more disappointed.

Then I have a week off to have fun! On May 12 is when I start my job at Nordstrom. I am going to be a sales associate. I hope that I can do well. I will be making $10 an hour plus commission! That is a lot of money for me since I used to work at McDonalds and get paid $8.75 an hour. I plan on saving a lot of the money that I make this summer and not spending it all.

Career Plans

by Patricia on April 25, 2016

in Academics,After College

I am very excited for this summer. I got an internship with Nordstrom for next year! I applied for it this year and since I do not have any retail experience, they want me to take a regular sales position this year instead. Hopefully after I complete the internship next summer, I will get a job. I recently talked to my manager to get things set up. I start May 12.

It is very important to figure out your career Junior year of college. This is the time to look for internships and decide if/how you want to go to grad school. The reason for this is because if you wait until Senior year, it might be too late. You don’t have lots of time to meet qualifications you might need. For example, this year I found out that in order to get a scholarship for an MBA program, I need to do more leadership and community service. Right now, I have the whole year to do it and still put it on my application. If I waited until Senior year, it would be hard to find things that I could do in the beginning of the year on time so that I could include it on my application.

I am sooooo glad that I have a plan and that I am not confused what to do after I graduate!

Tips for Summer!

by Taylor on April 18, 2016

in College Life

Hey guys! As you all know, (and are most likely counting down every second to) summer is almost here! In less than a month, we can all wave goodbye to another year and being summer 2k16! While it’s important to relax and decompress from your year at school, don’t forget that summer is the perfect time to be productive and do things that will propel you into your awesome future awaiting you! Here are a few suggestions of things that you could consider doing this summer instead of just laying around:

  1. Go to summer school– I know, I know. Why on earth would you spend even a second sitting in a classroom this summer when that’s all you’ve done all year? I always think the same thing. However, summer is the perfect time to either take that class that you couldn’t fit into your schedule during the school year because it required too much time or studying. I use summer to take my harder classes because I can focus on just that class as opposed to that and 4 other classes. I find it easier to study and stay motivated in the summer. Or, you could take classes in the summer to get ahead so that your course load during the year is lighter.
  2. Get experience– Summer is literally the best time to gain all the experience that grad schools/jobs want you to have when you graduate but never seem to actually have time to get. Want to go to med school? Use the summer to volunteer at hospitals or participate in undergrad research that med schools with inevitably require you to have. Going into finance? Try to score that internship at a local firm to give you real life experience in the job setting you want to be a part of. Trying to get a dietetic internship? Spend the summer working at Fontbonne’s Camp F.R.E.S.H. or at volunteering at local food banks to get the dietetic experience that future internship preceptors want to see filling up your resume. Opportunities like these exist everywhere, you just need to find them. Ask your professors and advisors for help. They often have plenty of ideas waiting for students to take
  3. Work-If school, volunteering, or internships are not in your plans this summer, that’s fine! Work instead. No matter what job you have, you will be getting benefits. Not only will having a job give you something to do everyday and cash to spend, but it will also teach you valuable things like working on a team, time management, and responsibility that you can carry with you through life.

What are your plans this summer? Make it a good one!

College Realities

by Patricia March 4, 2016

Once I went to Fontbonne, all the advice I got in high school was not true. Everyone told me that teachers did not care if you went to class and that classes were extremely hard. At Fontbonne, the teachers do care about students coming to class and they care about students learning. In one of my […]

The Power of an Internship

by Fontbonne University May 4, 2015

If there is one thing I can recommend while you are still in college, it would be to get an internship. An internship allows a student to learn about a desired profession and see if it would be something they could see themselves doing permanently. I had an internship this past tax season at Kiefer […]

Lovely Life in Lexington

by Alumni Posts July 23, 2014

Way back in February, I found out about an internship opportunity on the Omicron Delta Kappa website. It said “Are you interested in a career in event planning!?” And since I am interested in such a career and am an ODK member, I thought this would be perfect. The position would entail an intern to […]
