Winter Break

January 28th, 2008 by under Uncategorized. 2 Comments.

One of the great things about being a business school student is winter break.  After all, as a working professional, you rarely get five weeks off in general, let alone in a row.  Still with the holidays and traveling, much of my break was busy, yet somehow it felt much more low-key than the semester.  I guess when you don’t have deadlines to meet and project to complete, the pressure drops a bit.

We are strongly encouraged to pursue internship opportunities and the like during break, since we don’t have the time constraints of the semester.  Between using the school resources and searching through my own network, there are lots of possibilities out there, the challenge then becomes narrowing down the choices.  As we lead into a new semester, the internship search intensifies, and the interviews start happening, hopefully leading to a productive end.

Hi Adam,

I enjoy reading your blog. How do you sum up your first semester at Smith? Was it what you expected?

Good luck with your internship search!

My first semester was as expected. Smith is very challenging, we have lots of deliverables and are often pressed for time. But, I feel that I get a lot out of the classes and the professors do a good job of weaving current material into the classes.
