    How do you know you have a good boss? 

    Adjusting to the workplace can be a struggle after being able to sit in the back of the classroom for 4 years, having minimal interactions with classmates or professors. Professional communication and learning to work with others is something that can’t be taught in school and is something that you develop throughout your career. Communication between coworkers and bosses can be uncomfortable or difficult, but I was lucky enough to attend a seminar that taught me how to develop good communication skills in the workplace.

    The Smithsonian provided a short one-day seminar on Emotional Intelligence. I’m not sure most people (or college student at least) are familiar with the term. Wikipedia defines it as “the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself, of others, and of groups.” This sounds easy enough, right? (More …)

    Suit Up! 

    When I get home from my internship, the first thing I do is kick off my shoes, change out of my suit and tie, and watch How I Met Your Mother (I’ve watched six seasons so far this summer. Hey, a guy’s gotta enjoy his time off).

    Turning the page… Literally 

    So the other day I turned the page on my monthly calendar that hangs on the wall in my room… no big deal, right? Wrong. April was full of sharpied-in events, multiple highlighter colors and just generally looks like a disaster of deadlines. Of course, me and my level of OCD added all the final paper/presentation/exam dates to my monthly calendar within the first few weeks of receiving the syllabi. I find that as a visual learner, it helps manage deadlines. Anyways, I’ve also recently found that it helps elevate stress levels too! (More …)

      Wow, I am the same way with planning ahead–I always use a large calendar and when I turned the calendar to April I was immediately stressed! Good luck with your last month of classes and interning!
