Global Competency

It is crazy to think there are only two weeks left for my time abroad. The people I have met and the things I have done will never be forgotten. I am beyond grateful to myself and for others who pushed me to experience this. This week was very similar to my others. I had…

Two Weeks Left

In my experience, which is mainly just observing friends and family members in professional settings, the United States treats vacation time or time away from the office as something to use sparingly in most cases. Some office settings are different and they give more time away or are more loose with allowing you to work…

Work Culture in Prague

This week my workload started to slow down a bit compared to other weeks. At first it seemed like there was a million and one things to do. On Tuesday, we had this client-agency bonding day that we call Agency Day, so Monday was a crazy day trying to get ready for that. The week…

Leadership

This weekend my parents came to visit me. It was refreshing to see them after such a long time away. We spent the week drinking beer and eating Czech food. I acted as their tour guide and showed them around the city. We then had a long weekend and traveled to many places within the…

Leadership in Prague

This past week at my internship has been so busy! Starting on Monday, my coworker who handles the community management for Bata left for a two-week vacation, so that meant I was supposed to handle everything until she came back. I had to learn how to handle all the different parts and how to interact…

Copenhagen Round Two

Things at work have definitely slowed down this past week compared to my first few weeks here. Through talking to my boss this is pretty typical for the summer, to be very busy in June and the beginning of July then to experience quite a drop off from that in the following weeks. I think…

Shoe Related Stress

I feel like I just arrived in Prague, but this week was my fifth week here, which means I am a little over halfway finished with my internship and my time abroad. That is so crazy to think about! I really love it here and am definitely much more comfortable than I was a few…

Preparation

This weekend, me and a group of people visited the city of Krakow, Poland. The weather and the city were amazing. While there we visited the massive castle that rises above the city. I really enjoyed my time spent there and it was even nicer because it is a lot less touristy of a place…

Vienna Waits for No One

This week was only a four-day work week as Friday was a bank holiday in the Czech Republic that allows all businesses to shutdown. Since this is only a Czech holiday all of the companies that my company services still expected to get their regular shipment of parts making the four days we were here even…
