Winter wonderland?

By Shawn Lazarus
February 26, 2015

It’s been a while since we last met. I blame the record-breaking snow fall for the laze that I’ve settled into. I actually saw a weather report today that mentioned that we might actually be done with winter. Yeah! Don’t people usually talk about the weather when they have nothing to say? Well I figured I’d talk about life in the frozen tundra that is Waltham and my hunt for an internship.

Things have slowed down here because of the weather. Our classes were disrupted with many poor souls having to make up for lost classes on Fridays; social events have been canceled or postponed, too. I actually haven’t seen several members of my cohort because I’ve either lost them to the snow (I jest) or they’ve opted to take hybrid classes from the safety of their homes instead of shoveling out their cars and driving to campus. On the upside, my friends and I have resorted to holding parties whenever a menacing storm comes our way. We basically cook up a storm, sit in front of the window and stare out marveling at the show that nature puts on with all its gusty glory, whipping up sparkling snow and slashing it into every possible direction.

Being confined to your room does have its benefits: I used my time to apply to internships. Boy, is that a tedious and exhausting procedure. Finding the right fit for you is always a struggle and even if you do there’s no guarantee that you’ll even get a call back from the companies you are interested in. The best we can do is make sure we have a polished résumé, that our cover letters are tailored to the requirements of the company and the job description, and that we focus on perfecting our interview skills. Bentley’s career services has been very helpful with this regard. My résumé and cover letters were all looked over and approved by my career adviser and I even went in for a mock interview a day before a big interview I had.

Ask any ELMBA student and they will tell you that this particular semester is a challenging one. Your courses get more abstract and push you to think and solve problems creatively, there’s a heavy focus on finding the right internship and by the end of this semester we’ll have to say goodbye to all our seniors who’ve mentored and befriended us through out this year. You realize how short two years actually is and how time flies. I’ve truly grown to appreciate just how much I’m learning here and I’ve begun to value the time I have with my friends more. This is a very transitory period in my life, people come and go, opportunities too . . . the trick is to learn from every person that comes into your life and to spend quality time with them. Never let opportunities go, even if you think you’re not right for them. I’m going to end with this:

Until next time . . . stay warm.
