Pretty Little Liars Season Finale

This show is the reason I have trust issues. Episode after episode the characters are put through things I can only describe as some pretty weird stuff. I mean, who ends up on a train in a coffin with a dead body next to them? Or trapped in a kiln? Or stuck an old ice cream factory freezer? It’s so bizzare. I don’t know what to expect this week but I’m 100% sure it will just be more of the same.

If you’re a 15-25 year old girl, chances are you watch Pretty Little Liars. (If you’re not, then please disregard this post!) I personally watch the show, but hate it! The show has been dragged on for way too long now, with plot holes and huge questions that will probably never be answered. But tonight the writers have promised to finally reveal A’s identity! I kind of doubt that they will, but you never know.

My only logical guess for who A is, is Jason. He has been around since the beginning and has a pretty good motive for hating all of the girls and Allison. The only problem with this is that two other member of the N.A.T. club (that Jason was also a part of) were killed. It could have been Jason covering his tracks but at this point, anything goes in this show.

Comment below if you have any ideas about who A could be or any thought about the season finale tonight!

Adventures in Internship Applications

intern1-1024x645

I have been trying to finalize my summer plans for awhile now. After five first round interviews, four second round interviews and one third round interview, I still don’t have a sumer internship. As a junior in college, finding the right summer internship is very important to me. It will most likely be one of the first things a potential employer will see on my resume when I graduate and it will help me gain professional experience that will aid me in finding the right job.

Here are some of the things I’ve learned from this rigorous experience so far:

  • Study! This has helped me the most. I always study what the company does and their mission statement before I walk into an interview. In addition, study your resume and projects that you could be discussing so there are no pauses and you come off as knowledgeable as possible.
  • Have a few different real life examples of your work. These are very important when potential employers ask behavioral based questions. Plus they are easier to practice discussing then guessing what types of questions you might be asked.
  • Find something that makes you stand out. Discussing my experience on Lead at Sea and internship at Broadway in Chicago, is something that helps employers remember me.
  • Lastly, send thank you emails or notes. This puts you at the front of the employers mind and it shows that you aprricate the time they took out of their busy day to meet with you.

Overall, this has been a great learning experience for me. So far I have applied to and interviewed at  Allstate, the Principal Finical Group and Aon-Hewitt.  I have really enjoyed getting to know many potential future employers and learn about their companies. Fingers crossed that I find a great internship soon!
