Work-wise, I've had an awesome week. I'm interning at Bank of America in HR. Late last week, I got my placement in leadership development for Global Banking and Markets. It's a pretty exciting time to be working in financial services--so much is changing and it's cool to be part of that, even in a minor way. On Friday, my big project for the summer really started to get underway--one of the top talent priorities for the head of Global Banking and Markets. I think it'll be a great opportunity to actually help solve a challenge a company is facing that I researched in so much depth last year at my job before school.
I also got really lucky with my intern class. There are five other HR interns in New York in the program and they're all awesome--really fun, and smart, and from such different backgrounds and schools. Some are doing MBAs, some doing masters in org psych and other HR-y topics. And I'm actually the only one with an HR background; they're former lawyers, accountants, and other very non-HR backgrounds. Anyways, just an interesting group. Should be an awesome summer, if last night and this past week are any indication.
