How to Build a Stellar Resume


Kari Leibowitz

You probably think that you’ll have your chance to make a great first impression at the interview with a potential employer.  You’ll dress the part, wear your best

business outfit, and practice your handshake.  But your real first impression on any future employer is your résumé.  Without a stand-out résumé, your chances at landing an interview are grim at best.  Use these four tips to achieve résumé genius and advance yourself beyond phase one of the application process.

Put yourself in the mind of the reader.

  • Imagine you’re the recruiter or hiring manager for this job: you have a near-endless stack of résumés to look at and a limited amount of time.  Can’t find the contact information easily?  Next.  Poor grammar and spelling? Next.  Formatting is messy and the font is hard to read? Next.  Don’t give anyone reading your résumé an excuse to put it down and move on to the next one.

Format your résumé smartly.

  • Use a layout that is neat, clean, and aesthetically appealing.  Use a font such as Calibri, Arial, or Verdana: one that is easy to read but not the standard and boring Times New Roman.
  • Make sure your name and contact information is at the top, including e-mail address and phone number.
  • If you’re a recent grad, list your education information first.  Most employers want to see GPA, so if yours is boast-worthy definitely include it.  If your GPA could be better, use your major GPA if it’s higher.
  • If you’ve been in the working world for a few years, put your job experience first and move your education section to the bottom of your résumé.
  • Organize chronologically: put your most recent jobs first, starting with anything that is current.
  • Make sure your résumé is free from any grammar or spelling mistakes, as well as formatting inconsistencies that can make you appear sloppy.

Phrase your experiences to pack a punch.

  • Use action verbs such as ‘created,’ ‘managed,’ ‘generated,’ ‘utilized,’ or ‘instated,’ instead of verbs such as ‘did,’ or ‘was,’ and never use ‘I.’
  • Quantify wherever possible.  For example ‘answered phones’ can become ‘managed communications via telephone for hundreds of clients a week’ – showing a company, with tangible numbers, that you can generate revenue, manage large numbers of tasks, or create materials sets you apart from other applicants.
  • Use accomplishment statements to highlight key achievements, such as creating a new material or approach, increasing revenue or efficiency, solving problems, improving an existing program, or implementing projects.

Target your résumé to keep it relevant and concise.

  • It’s best to keep your résumé to one page, so you can create multiple résumés to highlight certain skills.  For example, if you’re applying for a job at a non-profit, spend more space elaborating on your volunteer work.  If you’re applying for an office position, use more space to talk about your organization and communication skills.
  • Make sure your résumé relates to the job you’re applying for in an obvious way.  If your résumé doesn’t connect directly, use your cover letter to explain how your skills and interests can transfer.

Remember, your résumé is the first thing a potential employer will see, and it serves as a personal brochure for what you’re selling them – you.  Paying close attention to detail and constantly putting in time and effort to update and improve your résumé will help you to land the job of your dreams.

We’re Back!


After a bit of a delay as the interns return to school and the Pearson offices around the country return to life without interns (so sad!), we’re happy to announce that The Pearson Interns blog is back!  We look forward to highlighting how the skills learned in our internships transfer over to the school year and are excited to keep sharing with you!  We are always learning.

Diversity Initiatives at Pearson


Alejandra Estevez

Before the stressful weeks of finals even began, the uncertainty of what I would be doing over the summer had me in a panic.  I had begun my internship search earlier in the semester, revising my resume, sending out applications, and checking for internship postings on a daily basis.  After a couple of interviews but no call backs, I’ll admit I became a bit less optimistic.  “Staying at home wouldn’t be so bad,” I thought to myself. “I could travel around the city, photographing the sites I’ve been meaning to, hit the gym more often, and maybe even finish all of the unread books I’ve collected on my shelves.”  But I knew that staying at home for the entire summer was not what I really wanted.

cell phoneIt was during an afternoon meeting that I received a call from an unfamiliar number.  As I tried to silence my cell phone, hoping no one would notice the sound coming from bag, I recognized the New York City area code and hoped that it was who I thought it was.  Several days earlier I had had a phone interview for the Diversity and Inclusion intern position with Pearson’s HR department.  The internship seemed a perfect fit: I would be doing work I feel passionate about by helping implement diversity initiatives with Pearson’s fairly new Diversity team.

After my meeting I quickly returned the call, and surely enough, it was a call from Pearson, offering me the internship position.  I accepted without hesitation, thanking Francine repeatedly.  For the rest of the afternoon I couldn’t stop myself from grinning.

Nearly two months later, I am well settled into the Pearson offices here in New York, having gotten the opportunity to meet several Pearson employees as well as the other Financial Times interns in the building.

Although my internship is with Human Resources Department, it is different from a regular internship with Pearson in that Diversity and Inclusion teams are fairly new to many companies, Pearson included.  As part of the Diversity team I research the argument for diversity initiatives in business and assist in planning diversity telecourses throughout the year, such as the Disability Employment Awareness telecourse on disability etiquette.

I’ve loved working for Pearson and its Diversity team this summer because it has taught me to think about diversity in all senses of the word. I’ve learned that it is important to consider contributions and ideas from a wide range perspectives since it allows for better work relationships, as well as new innovations and a better organization overall. It’s great to be part of a company and team that takes diversity into consideration.  By celebrating Pearson’s people and their work through the Diversity Awards, our team seeks to demonstrate how we can have an inclusive work environment for all employees – and that’s something I’m thrilled to be a part of.

Getting to do research and planning with the team for the months ahead, meeting and learning about others outside of my department, and spending time with the great people Human Resources, whether it’s doing work or chatting over lunch, have made my time at Pearson an amazing one so far.

The Senior Blues


Sarah Timmins

To be, or not to be, that is the question… isn’t it? To be a Sales Rep.; to be a PRMRS pro; to be a burger flipper; to major in Art History, Psychology, or to stay at home with the kids and get your M.R.S. These are the looming questions that many graduating seniors (including myself) are afraid of.

As I hesitantly approach my senior year at James Madison University, I find myself browsing through my freshman year photos yearning for the days of dorm life, making new friends and being an exuberant young, fit seventeen year old. I’m diagnosing myself with a moderate case of the senior blues; the senior slump, you know what I mean. Now, at the seasoned old age of twenty, I am determined to halt the approach of the senior blues storm before it hits with full force and ruins my last year as an undergrad.

So, why does the fear of graduating seem to be an eminent fact?  The reasons that make college life seems so simple when you’re living it are the very same reasons that make post-graduate life so daunting. I’d also like to share some valuable lessons that I’ve learned here at Pearson that now make me view graduation day as exciting rather than a death sentence.

Reason #1: The decisions of a common college undergrad are as follows:
ChipotleTo go out on Tuesdays or not
To go to Chipotle or Subway, or maybe…Panera?
To give your parents your book buyback money or not (not)
Heels?

Whether we’d like to admit it or not, all of us silver seniors know that these decisions will soon become as old and obsolete as Britney Spears (pre 2008 meltdown) and be replaced by fun-sucking activities like: waking up at 7am, wearing clothes that do not include miniskirts, and possibly even investing in a mini suitcase.

Yes, these things may happen, but it’s not as bad as it’s cracked up to be. Relax; it’s all in your head, people! You will not turn into a corporate zombie and you will still have a social life.

Pearson has shown me that work (believe it or not) can be fun. It really depends on where you choose to work, what attitude you decide to employ, and who you surround yourself with. If you work for a company you believe in, you’ll cringe a little less every night when you’re taking your shriveled contacts out of your bloodshot eyes. Why? Because if you believe in your company and feel like a valued and important employee, everything you do, no matter how big or small, is contributing to a mission that actually matters to you.

procrastinateReason #2: College students avoid the unavoidable.
Whether it’s studying for an exam, applying for a job, or calling your parents to let them know you’re alive, college students will find a way to procrastinate.

My Pearson internship has shown me that the hardest part of entering the “real world” is taking your first steps into it. If you do the leg work in the beginning you will save yourself pain and anxiety later on – this means not only putting time and effort into finding a job that’s a good fit for you, but also starting off on the right foot once you get there. I was terrified my first few days of my internship, but once I learned the ropes, I felt right at home. Now, when I apply for a job after graduation, I will feel much more confident and prepared knowing what I have accomplished this summer.

Going out into the ‘real world’ is like freshman year all over again: its intimidating at first, but once you’re there, it’s not so bad after all. If you’re in the right setting, it’s actually kind of nice, or dare I say it, motivating!

So, don’t spend the next year of your life sulking about how fast time flew, howGraduation broke you are going to be, or how much you don’t want to get a job, and realize that graduation is just beginning.

Networking Home Run


Kieran Fleming

So you’re interested in an internship at Pearson? Bring your cleats! Pearson softball is just one way you can get to know your colleagues, but it sure is a rewarding one. You will meet some characters, and listening to old friends talk

Cleats

to each other can make you forget they work together too. Several departments have field teams here in the Upper Saddle River office in New Jersey, and most weeks there are two games a week per team, weather depending. It is a league where determination and hustle are requirements, but you will meet department presidents some days and marketing managers the next, and it is extremely worthwhile.

If you think those hard hours training, sprinting, and the general “beat-you-down-until-you-get-it-right” mentality of high school sports will never impact your life beyond graduation, think again. As much as Pearson makes a strong effort to introduce you to many individuals who can offer you guidance or gainful employment, the softball league is a chance for you to prove you have what it takes outside of the office. Just by going out to play, you show bravery and initiative, and by being yourself you will gain great networking connections and learn about yourself.

Those who know what intercompany softball at Pearson is like will understand. They understand that the end of special workdays is only the beginning. The competition in the office, a battle fought sitting down in swivel chairs, over donuts, coffee, salad and smiles, is over. The smiles invariably remain, but suddenly a layperson will gain a new appreciation of their fellow colleagues. Mild mannered by day, editors, managers, and IT men and women converge at a nearby field to contend for the most prestigious prize that may not fit on your resume: becoming the champion of the Pearson softball league.

Nobody needs to play softball to fit in. It gets really hot, people can’t alwayshot sun make the games, and thanks to celebrations after each loss I usually don’t get home until 9:00pm or later. Yet Pearson softball goes back a long way.  Some of the athletes are swamped in the office and do not have the social space to see all their friends regularly except on the field. The trash talk is legendary, and thanks to my “fresh” legs and my own style of play (and an occasional habit of talking about Kieran in the third person) I have been referred to as Rickey “Rocket”Henderson(as well as “the really fast kid”, “that freaking intern”, and most often, “lefty”). I have met Mad Dog, Buehler, and Crazy Legs.

Nothing is more disconcerting in an office environment, with your nice shoes and maybe even a neatly tucked in shirt when suddenly someone dressed with equal aplomb gives you a smile that can only be described as an “I can’t wait to try hit the ball so far over your head you’ll be chasing it for a week” kind of smile, and you instinctually smile back as if to say “Yeah then you better hit it pretty far!” If that sounds slightly sophomoric in maturity to you, that’s because it is. Yet we can’t play by ourselves. The whole community recognizes the importance of all players on each team feeling included and comfortable in the field, and negativity is hardly tolerated.

Winning doesn’t matter.  My teammates and I play because it is a chance to spend a few hours in the sun, with people we know and relate to through oursoftball work at Pearson. If you want to solidify your standing at Pearson as a lowly intern, or if you don’t know how to begin to network in a professional environment but can heft a bat or toss a ball, I strongly encourage you to explore your department’s softball team. If you don’t know who to ask, talk to your mentor and you may be shocked to hear that he or she might even be the coach! Finally, if you are considering coming to Pearson as an intern, be prepared to have fun with the people you work with, trust your instincts and find your niche. Maybe you will succeed where it seems I most likely won’t; our record is 1-6.

My Path to Pearson


Samantha Sinkhorn

I spent the last six years of my higher-ed life trying to answer one question: “What do you want to be when you grow up? “ Well, as much as I hate to admit it, I’m ‘grown up’ now – both my driver’s license and birth certificate can confirm this.

On my first day of my freshman year of college, I walked into class confident that I was on track to a business management degree. An hour and fifteen minutes later I walked out and sent my adviser a brief e-mail: “This isn’t going to Writingwork.” Hours of thumbing through course catalogues and imagining myself in various careers (some of which, albeit, were wildly unattainable) led me nowhere. So I decided to throw caution to the wind and pick a major that would allow me to do something that I love: write.

“What in the world are you going to do with a degree in English? Write poetry all day?” my dad would ask. Those types of questions increased in frequency when I decided to go on to get my master’s degree. However, my response was always the same: “I don’t know.”

So in the spring, when all my friends and classmates started sending out résumés and cover letters for jobs, I followed suit. Again, I started imagining myself inHot dog vendor different careers (journalist, graphic designer, marketing associate). I was going up against hundreds, if not thousands, of applicants for some of these positions, so my career search became a little less hopeful and a lot more desperate (telemarketer, lifeguard, hot dog vendor).

I didn’t want to give up what I wanted to do because of the job economy, so I turned my focus to publishing internships. I was always interested in the industry, particularly book publishing. While working on my master’s, I helped a professor publish one journalism textbook and one e-learning module. So with that experience under my belt, I started applying.

And now here I am—two months and four books into my internship and I love every single second of it.  The things I’ve learned, and continue to learn, will stick with me throughout my professional life. Currently, I am managing three titles from manuscript to bound book. This means I get to interact with authors, development editors, proofreaders and copy editors, and many other awesome Name in a bookpeople throughout the process. And the best part of all: I get to have my name published in the front of each book!

Although I’m not writing at this internship, my skills I obtained as a writer are easily transferrable to my internship (organization, eye for detail, ability to effectively communicate a message).

If someone told 18-year-old me that I would one day be working as an editorial intern at a publishing company, I would have called them a liar (but probably not to his/her face). I’ve changed a lot since then, especially that horrendous haircut, but my change to what could be a career in publishing is the one that I’m happiest about.

Even though my path to this internship was roundabout, I’m glad I kept my options open and sought out every opportunity that came my way. If I hadn’t, I wouldn’t have realized how much I enjoy doing what I do now. 

Big Girl Job


Julie Candio Sekel

It was the first week of my internship at Pearson and I was returning to my desk after lunch with two fellow interns in my department. As we laughed about whether or not we knew how to navigate through the maze of cubicles and slew of semi-familiar faces we would grow to identify easily over the next eight weeks, I bid my new acquaintances farewell with a confident head bob and a simple, “I know the way.”

I cut straight through the center aisle, hardly slowing my step, and streamlined for the back wall where I knew I had to make a left to be back at my desk. Just as I turned the corner, however, I jolted back from the utter embarrassment that there, at the end of my aisle, were the two other interns, who actually did know where they were going, which was nowhere near my desired location. Quickly observing the pantry close by, I couldn’t help but smile as I held up an empty bag and said, “I, uh, forgot I had to go put these things back in the fridge.”

In week one of my internship at Pearson, I was an ant scurrying about my ant farm in sheer confusion, merely trying to endure 6:30AM wakeups during ant farmmy summer vacation and having to be that person who couldn’t go out on weeknights with friends because I had a “big girl job.” In week one I sang praises to the heavens after simply surviving my first meeting with the VP & Director of Marketing in Social Sciences and Arts, while I observed another intern’s high comfort level that allowed him to ask her if he could grab a Red Bull from her mini fridge. It was in week one that I obtained a stack of paperwork on my desk that was double the size of any textbook I would be writing about, and in week one I returned home on Friday with a plain “I’m going to be the palest person ever this summer,” in response to the question of how I sized up the job.

Weeks later I must report that I have full color in my cheeks and I’ve seen the sun every single day. Not only do I sit outside at lunch with the other interns on many occasions, but I’ve also learned how to separate my work from my life as a college student outside of this internship. I must admit that this has been the most challenging part, with a long list of books and deadlines for e-catalog copy that needs to be written and uploaded, but I’ve learned to make it work.

The most notable thing about the Pearson program is that they don’t give their interns petty tasks, which is what causes me to be so engulfed in my work here. Instead of making countless copies, we are given projects and provided with the tools we need to successfully complete them. When I answer relatives who inquire about my job description, I am always met with an overly positive, yet surprised, response. Although I know my qualifications for the job, I did not expect to function at such a high level of active participation solely because I had believed all internship programs were homogenous in their ideals and expectations.

Believe me when I say Pearson is not the rule: it’s the exception. Pearson is invested in our futures, which is evident on a daily basis through assessments

USR Interns

that provide us with feedback, workshops organized by the company, and supervisors who are always ready to assist us. And I like to think that our relationship is reciprocal: we too feel wholeheartedly invested in the continuing excellence of the global leaders in the publishing industry. We strive to overcome their obstacles, take pride in their successes, and even enjoy their complimentary lunch goodies, indicating another week has passed in our program.

Although I often feel my personal happiness derives from having a full stomach, I must admit this isn’t even the best part. One of my favorite aspects of this internship is the amount of independence we are afforded. We are not grouped together as a whole on a daily basis, but are integrated into the company’s daily routines and meetings, which often means working self-sufficiently like most employees, yet we still maintain communication with our mentors. We are not “babied” or “micromanaged” or made to feel inferior, but are treated like adults, which offers further validity of my “big girl job” when discussing it with others.

While my friends may not suspect it, this “big girl job” comes with enjoyment as Softballwell. Since I’ve been here, I’ve been invited to join my department’s softball team, shared many meals with peers, basked in the beauty of flex schedule Fridays, and raised my own virtual child in Pearson’s interactive online learning lab. Other interns have shared these experiences, openly venting with one another when our virtual teenagers ran away with their boyfriends to get tattoos or when we got into fights with our virtual husbands in front of the children.

The bottom line is that Pearson provides us with resources to delve into our program with a good attitude and strong structure of support, all while allowing us to incorporate our own fresh and fun ideas. When we complete trials, such as MyVirtualChild, Pearson asks for our questions and opinions; they ask for our input on such a regular basis, yet it always seems to astonish me. Pearson ensures the curiosity we had as children does not get lost or turn into lethargy, but translates into our becoming inquiring skeptics as adults.

After my six weeks here I’ve come to realize we are no longer the ants trying to navigate through the halls and sea of faces. We can be comfortable enough to weed through that gigantic stack of papers, respond thoughtfully in our intern workshops and focus groups, and even ask for that Red Bull from a higher authority. Now we can confidently say “I know the way,” and it doesn’t pertain to our office destination, but to the path we will take as leaders into our educational and professional careers as a result of our time at Pearson.

The Intern Life


Jill Weiss

I landed the World Languages Intern position after three rigorous and challenging interviews.  I had always known about Pearson, since most of my high school textbooks had the Pearson symbol on them and I knew they owned subsidiaries of other large companies, including Prentice Hall.  When I first heard that I got the position, I was thrilled! In this economy, not only is it extremely competitive to get an internship or job for the summer, but the fact that this internship was paid was fantastic.  Also, as an English major, I’ve always wanted to explore this industry and get a taste of what it is like to work in publishing.

Immediately upon my arrival at the office, I was greeted by my co-workers, who have helped me so much throughout my time at Pearson.  Whenever I have a question or inquiry, they are always there to help immediately. My second day at work, I immediately became apart of what I consider Pearson’s “digital revolution.”  My first project consisted of hot-spotting five foreign language textbooks.  Hot-spotting entails documenting and creating links on Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to make videos, icons, and words clickable on Pearson’s online MyLanguageLabs.  Not only did I have to include links, but I also had to indicate on Excel where certain words and videos needed to be placed on the page.  On average, I would say for each textbook I had close to 1700 rows that were labeled on Excel.  For my largest text I had over 3600 columns.

While at first I was a bit flustered by my assignment, with the help of my project manager, I was able to get through the process very smoothly.  As I was doing this project, I was also meeting with various people for lunches to gain a sense of what other employees at Pearson do on a daily basis.  Some of the people I met with included employees from the Human Resource Management Department and the Marketing department, who gave me extremely useful advice about their fields and their own career paths.  I have always had an interest in both Human Resource Management and Marketing, so I figured it would be great to meet with people who were highly trained in those fields.

Currently, I am working on a Photography Research project, where I am helping to update older images in Spanish textbooks.   I am looking forward to working on my upcoming marketing project, where the World Languages Marketing Assistant and I are going to organize the information she has about which schools currently do not use Pearson textbooks, which we will give to the Project Specialists to target these schools for the upcoming National Sales Meeting.

One of the major skills I have acquired in this position is that I’ve learned how important it is to ask questions in a corporate environment.  At first, I was a bit timid and did not know if I was creating a burden on people by asking them if the work I was doing was correct.  I’ve learned though that there really are no ridiculous questions and in any job, by asking questions, you are making sure that you are completing your assignment correctly.  This internship has also helped me become adept with important programs, including Microsoft Excel. Any of these skills and programs can be used in a corporate environment, which is another great perk of being a Pearson Intern.

What I personally love most about this internship is that I’ve been exposed to every division within the company.   While I have primarily worked on editorial and marketing projects, I have become familiar with parts of production and sales.  I have an amazing mentor who has helped me grow so much and I look forward to my endeavors with Pearson this summer!

Privacy in a Public Domain


Michael Barbara

The movie “The Social Network” shed a lot of light on the intentions of The Social NetworkFacebook: taking the entire social experience of college and putting it online. Mark Zuckerberg knew that college students wanted to be able relive that crazy party that they attended over the weekend at any given time, and Facebook was a tool to let you do just that.  Better yet, since Facebook was originally restricted to Harvard-only students, you could do this within the privacy of your personal ‘social network.’ However, the exclusivity that Facebook once thrived on is no more – this is becoming more evident as the internet company has grown into a global powerhouse. What we, as college students, often don’t realize is the wide variety of people that have created accounts – it’s no longer only our peers who are on Facebook. With over 750 million active users there are many potential employers that now have a public window to our once private world.

At our weekly intern meeting, Eric Severson, Pearson’s Senior VP of East Coast Sales for Higher Education, warned us of the repercussions that our online life can have. He put it the best when he said that, “Employees are an investment.”

Eric Severson

Eric Severson

We often don’t realize the associated costs, in both time and money, in hiring a new employee.  When investing in something that can have consequences for years to come, and can cost a lot of money, employers are going to take all factors into consideration – including the way a potential employee presents him or herself to the world via social media.

One may argue (as one of my co-interns did) that it isn’t really fair for employers to look at these private pages. And to that I put forth the question: does it really matter? Aren’t most of us brought up hearing the expression “Life isn’t fair”? Once we get to the critical point of hiring and firing people I believe that we should also take into consideration every resource at our disposal to determine the character of a potential employee, and this is exactly what our employers will be doing by looking at our Facebook profiles.

I caution current and future college students: EVERYTHING you do these days is put under a microscope. Would you really want to lose out on a great opportunity just because there is a picture of you playing a drinking game? I didn’t think so. I strongly encourage every intern, and college student, to take the time to your review your Facebook pages, Twitter posts, and even MySpace photos (if you still have one). Make sure there is nothing that would make an employer throw your application in the garbage. You never know – what you portray on Facebook could drastically change the outcome of your life.

Intern Bonding


Jillian Barwick

The life of an intern can be extremely busy, crazy, hectic, messy, scattered, and, well, you get the point. This can leave said intern without time in the day to even think for his or herself, let alone make friends with fellow interns and co-workers. There are some cases where an intern may be the only summer intern in the entire office. Lucky for us interns at Pearson in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey, this is not the case.  We have a group of fifteen bubbly interns with ecstatic-to-work-mentalities to collaborate with on a daily basis.

Having so many people around you that share the same internship jitters makes working for such a big company more relaxing and fun. I have some friends who have intense summer internships for uptight companies who either have no time to make friends with other interns or are the only intern in their office, making it difficult to bond with people who work there year-round.  I even have a friend who ended up eating lunch alone for several weeks, reminiscent of Lindsay Lohan’s scene in “Mean Girls” where she eats lunch in a bathroom stall.

At Pearson, we have a great, established summer intern program, set up so that you will never have to fear eating your sandwich alone in the bathroom. Since there is a large group of us interns, we established an “intern thread” through our Pearson e-mail accounts. This thread is used for brainstorming and bouncing ideas off of each other, checking in with one another, and planning dates and times of lunch outings or dinner get-togethers.

Christie and her sippy cup

Christie and her sippy cup

This past Thursday, we scheduled an intern dinner after work at Houlihan’s for some nice, relaxing quality time outside of the office. It was excellent!  Hanging out with fellow interns was a ton of fun. Conversation never stopped at our table of 15. With a large and rambunctious group, it is sometimes hard to get a word in, but we all took time to listen to everyone else. We all laughed when Christie was given a kiddy cup with a lid on it after she spilled her first drink almost immediately, and I really think the waiter enjoyed our large group, that is until we needed to split the check – oops! After the check was paid, the group gathered out front of the restaurant and documented our wondrous outing with a group photo!  

It is really spectacular that we all get along so well. Seeing the same people day in and day out for about eight weeks can be tough if you are not fond of each other. We are extremely lucky that our personalities have clicked and meshed so well together. It makes lunching together every day hilarious when we talk about random Harry Potter fun facts, Youtube videos, or current events.

No matter what the discussion happens to be, having a fun, energetic group of

interns means there will always be a great time when it’s spent together. From crazy lunch stories, to what’s happening in the news via “intern thread” or where our next outing will take place, we, as Pearson interns, are “Always Learning” new things about ourselves and each other.
