Final Blog Post

At last, we have come to the final post documenting my experience at patientMpower! This was a very rewarding experience and I’d like to thank everyone who contributed. To sum up my experience at patientMpower, I was an intern that primarily helped with US sales. patientMpower is a digital healthcare company that helps people living…

Farewell to Dublin

I cannot believe the summer is already ending. It seems like the start of the IIP program was only yesterday. It has been an amazing journey and I am excited to sum it up in this final post. First, I would like to thank my donor (I will keep the name anonymous) for being so generous as to award a scholarship to me….

¡Hasta Luego!

Hello! Wherever you are, I hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer vacation before school is back in session. I am excited to announce that this year I am moving in early to begin training as a Resident Assistant. It is my first year as an RA, and I will be living…

One transferable skill I learned is communicating with other staff members. This was my first experience working and communicating with business professionals. It was challenging…

Communication in the Multinational Office: Dublin

This blog post is an interesting one for me as my communications differed according to my colleagues. My team at StayCity was multicultural with members hailing from Ireland, Greece, Ecuador, and Brazil. While Ireland is a low-context culture and the team is adapted to the Irish workstyle, I could sense a difference in communication from my Greek and Brazilian colleagues.   My…

Post #5: Reflecting on Communication Differences

In my last discussion post, I discussed the country report I wrote for my supervisor as a proof of concept for an undergraduate activity. When I showed Mr. Gillanders—my supervisor, France’s completed country report, he was very pleased with my work and expressed his plan to incorporate it as an undergraduate activity.  As my next…

Communication in Ireland

Hi everyone! I’m writing this blog post after my last day at patientMpower. During my final week of my internship, I was able to finish up my part of the business market research project. I also spent some time in meetings as well as meeting some of my coworkers that I hadn’t had the chance to get…
