I’ve said for some time now that when we are in the midst of this program, time starts to slow down to the point where it only passes in the smallest of increments. That was certainly not true of the holidays, which seem to have flown by at the speed of light. As fleeting as they were, it does seem to have done the trick: the reset button has been pressed and in the MBA Commons there is a certain relaxed quality to everyone. The cynic in me knows it won’t last, but I am enjoying it just the same.
Careers and internships are starting to percolate through conversations more and more. Everyone is getting excited about which internships they are applying to and whether or not they will get an interview or offer. We all know that the economy is not optimal for this, but the thing about Smeal is that we are all in this together, and we will get through it. I know I want to help everyone get their dream job or internship and I am sure many of my classmates will help me in turn.
I wish all of the first and second years good luck! Hopefully this mod will be successful for all of us.
