Thrown into the fire

More Than Just a SuperMarket

I’m about to begin my third week interning at Tops Friendly Markets Headquarters and I couldn’t be happier. I walked in the building on my first day with my stomach tied into knots. I was immediately put at ease when the receptionist welcomed me and told...

Learning Ad Lingo

I have only been at Crowley for two weeks but I already feel like I have learned so much. Almost too much. It’s been very overwhelming to say the least. I have sat in on many meetings with a notepad and a pen but without a knowledge of what is being said. There is so...
