End of semester

by Patricia on April 20, 2017

in Career Paths

I am prepping for the end of the semester by making sure that I have a plan after graduation. I have been doing this all semester. I was offered an internship at Dillards, so I will be doing that this summer. Last week I had an interview with WashU because I applied for their MBA program. I hope to enroll there this fall depending if I get accepted. I will find out on May 5. If I do not get accepted, I will try again next year. In the meantime, hopefully I will have a job at Dillards.

I will only have one final exam this semester, and I am studying for that class now so I don’t wait until the last minute. I am also helping a friend get a job this summer. She has had a difficult year as well as some health setbacks. Getting a summer job is good for her mental health and overall well being. I explained the importance of finding a job before the semester ends. Yesterday I helped her write a resume so that she can apply to a bunch of different places. I referred to her Dillard’s. I am hoping that they accept her even though she doesn’t have any work experience. It is important to start working before college so that it is easier to get other jobs. Anyway, I have plans after graduation, and I hope that she does when she graduates in a few years!

Plans after Graduation

by Patricia on April 10, 2017

in Career Paths

As you already know, I plan on doing the internship at Dillard’s this summer. After that I will either accept a job at Dillard’s, depending if I am offered one. My other option is grad school. The schools that I applied to are Wash U and Notre Dame. Notre Dame is located in Indianapolis. Last week I received a letter saying that people with my profile have been accepted in the past and received fellowships. This gives me hope. I am still considering Fontbonne. Although Fontbonne doesn’t offer scholarships, it allows for flexibility. They allow you to take as many classes you want at a time. I could potentially work at Dillard’s and go to class at the same time. I would rather not do that; I am not very good at doing both at the same time. However if I go to Wash U or Notre Dame, I am required to go full time. At Notre Dame I would have to live on campus because I don’t have a car. I couldn’t possibly work either.

My Internship

by Patricia on April 10, 2017

in Career Paths

I recently accepted a retail management internship with Dillard’s. I will be doing it this summer. This was a very long process. First I applied for the same internship at Nordstrom. Instead, they offered me a sales position. They were considering giving me the internship next year. The sales position did not go well. Because it was commission based, it was a very hostile, competitive environment. I was accused of stealing other people’s sales. Eventually, Nordstrom forced me to resign, not acknowledging the amazing sales that I had.

During Christmas break, I worked at Dillard’s. It has no commission and is a much friendlier environment. Everybody worked as a team. I liked it so much that I applied for their retail management internship. It was difficult when the person in charge of it left. I had to fill out my application and be interviewed all over again! I completed the process again and was offered the job last week. I can’t wait to start!

Everyone has heard of the phrase: Good things come to those who wait. But in fact there is a second half to that saying that many may or may not know about – and that is: Better things come to those who go out and get them!

And quite frankly, I can personally relate to this! Not only from an educational perspective but also from an Entrepreneurial & Business stand point (the Fortune 500 Project). Again, I cannot talk about it just yet. But when the time comes, hopefully I can let you all know (assuming there aren’t any Non-Disclosure Clauses in the contract). But that is beside the point. We will cross the bridge when we get there. For now, I am excited to see what future lies ahead! I know that it is cliché to say that but in all sense of the word, it is truly exciting! I have a year and half left at Fontbonne (sad, I know..) and I am currently seeking internships! Hopefully things turn out Great! Until next time guys, Stay Classy!

Why Fontbonne?

by Fontbonne University September 28, 2015

“Why did you choose Fontbonne?” is a question I found myself getting asked quite often. Whether it’s family asking me or my classmates, my answer is usually the same. I say something along the lines of “I like the small community feel” or “I wanted a school with a small student to faculty ratio.” While […]
