My Internship Journey

 
 
 

For a little over two years, I have been a student intern at Sandia National Laboratories. I first thought I may be interested in an internship at Sandia when my MGMT 202 professor mentioned that there was a career fair going on across the hall at the Jackson Center during class one day. At the time, I was a sophomore and had no idea what to expect. Class got out early, so I decided to head over and check out the employers at the career fair. I spoke with a Sandia recruiter and gave them my resume. A couple weeks later I had an interview and the rest is history!

My internship has allowed me to grow professionally and meet some wonderful people. You always hear that networking is such a big part of the business world, and it truly is! I have found that getting to know people and building those professional relationships is so crucial when it comes to being a successful businessperson. Having the opportunity to get mentored at my internship has been extremely beneficial. Mentoring has helped me continue my business development and build relationships with people who have extensive business expertise. Being in contact with people who are at a point in their career where you aspire to be makes goals seem more realistic and attainable.

Another crucial skill I have learned is how to practice teamwork. We have all done group projects for class and had to manage different styles and opinions throughout a project. Having an internship has helped me apply these teamwork skills in order to be part of a successful organization. I have learned that different opinions are what generate awesome ideas. Learning to work as part of a team is a skill that I have gotten to practice not only at school but in the actual workplace at my internship. Learning how to work in a company’s specific culture and environment is the best way to see how you really like the field that you are interested in. Getting your degree is obviously very important and the main goal for students; however, having professional experience outside of school and maximizing networking opportunities takes your education to a completely different level.

According to the Huffington Post, 69% of companies with 100 or more employees offered full time jobs to their interns. In addition to this, 85% of employers say hiring an intern was a positive experience. Not only does an internship open the door for advancement within the company, it also helps you develop skills that you cannot gain from school alone. Personally, I have seen a great development in my own networking and professional skills from my internship experience. Utilizing these along with mentoring opportunities has helped me gain a better understanding of my goals for the future. If you do not have an internship and are still searching for one, don’t forget to check out the Internship Fair January 30th in the Jackson Center!



My name is Natalie Chiha. I graduated this past May with my BBA in Finance and just started my MBA in MOT. I look forward to graduating with my MBA in either summer or fall of 2014.

Contrary to all the Negative News About the Economy, It’s Still a Great Time to Start a Small Business

 
 
 

(Part 1 in a 3 part series)

Even though we face a poor economy, these same conditions also make it a great time to start a small business.  Suppliers are willing to take lower prices, consumers are looking for better deals and more value, and social media provides the budding entrepreneur a long list of low cost marketing tools to choose from.

Brad Sugars, founder and chairman of ActionCOACH, summed up the many benefits of starting a business in a recession in an article he contributed to the February 2009 issue of Entrepreneur magazine (www.entrepreneur.com), including:

Everything is cheaper.
Let's face it: There is great value right now in this and in world markets. This is the right time for fantastic deals in virtually every category, from land and equipment to commercial office space, personnel and labor. As asset prices have been knocked down, there is no better time to get into the real estate or financial markets, or even heavy equipment and construction. Some people have waited years to find value in these markets--and now that time has come.

You can hire more and better-qualified people.
In an era when even Microsoft is laying off, you can find great resources at affordable rates. Thinking about getting your high-tech startup off the ground? There are plenty of engineers waiting to be hired. Thinking about forming a professional services firm? There are many accountants and attorneys looking for their next opportunity.

People are looking to change suppliers.
From a cost perspective, everything is on the table for most companies. Even if your prices are higher, if you can come in with greater value, you have a good chance at winning new business. You also have the advantage of being the new kid on the block when it comes to pitching your products and services. Many companies are desperate to find new partnerships with new companies that have a different, better or more innovative way of delivering those products and services.

Ownership equals tax incentives.
Business ownership offers a variety of tax benefits that aren't available to employees. While taxes should never be the sole reason to go into business for yourself, it should be one reason to add to your "benefits of business ownership" list.

Family and friends don't want to (or can't) invest more money into the stock or real estate markets.That means they may be willing to finance a portion of your new venture, or the expansion of an enterprise that has proven itself over time. The main benefit is that they know you and have a relationship with you--and if you have a solid business plan that delivers real numbers, your chances of raising the capital you need increase exponentially.

Suppliers are giving better credit.
Because the credit markets have virtually shut down, the B2B credit flows are keeping money circulating out of sheer necessity. That means a bullish outlook for companies looking for good terms on stock and/or inventories. The main advantage is that all parties have more incentive than ever for finding true win-win situations that allow for cash and stock flow. When everyone is looking to survive, great deals can be had.

You can get good PR by showing you are going against the trend.The media loves aberrations, and if you are optimistic by expanding or getting into business now, you would be in that category. That means you can generate some great PR by demonstrating your "alternative" view of the market.

You can buy everything you need at auction.In addition to everything being less expensive, you can find great deals at auctions, especially in terms of any large equipment and office furnishings. Auctions are also a great place to find hardly used or "gently" used restaurant and bar supplies at great prices. These days, you may even be able to get deals on fleets of vehicles and trucks for a delivery service or hauling or construction company.

You can find great "low money" or "no money" down deals.This is simply being aware of good opportunities others have buggered up, and finding deals where you could get an entire business simply by taking over a lease (along with all the equipment). Many business owners want out at any cost, meaning you can negotiate great win-win deals that allow the current owners an escape while giving you an opportunity to turn around what could be, if run right, a very viable business, and finally…

You've lost your job, and you have to do something.Sometimes, the best business decision is the one you are forced into, and the incentive (as well as need) for income is often enough to push those previously "on the fence" to strike out on their own. There's nothing wrong with being in this position; it simply means there is greater urgency to do something that will start to generate income as quickly as possible.

Of course there are many benefits to owning your own business rather than working for someone else including:
  • Be your own boss
  • Personal independence
  • Flexible hours
  • Ability to work from home
  • Pay for performance
  • Unlimited earnings
  • Potential tax benefits
While you are in college, small business ownership can supply you with an additional source of income and may better match your time commitments and need for a flexible schedule.  And after college, entrepreneurship is certainly an alternative long-term career choice worth investigating.  I’ll explore other aspects of starting a small business in future blog articles including the 2nd and 3rd in this series:

-  The Entrepreneurial Mindset, Turning Problems into Profits
-  11 Hot Small Business Ideas You Can Start While in College


UNM offers a wide range of courses to choose from to begin your entrepreneurial journey.  Be sure to schedule an appointment with your Admissions Counselor to explore the many options available to you.

Sacco, Lecturer I, teaches MGMT 384 Professional Selling and MGMT 324 New VenturesStrategies in the Entrepreneurial Studies track and is the Associate Director of the UNM Small Business Institute.  Sacco previously served as a Regional Manager for WESST, an SBA-funded nonprofit and microlender that helps start and grow small businesses and hosts a small business incubator in downtown Albuquerque.  For more information, contact Stacy at sasacco@unm.edu or 505-277-1138.

Join A Student Organization

By now, I am sure many of you have been approached about joining a student organization and getting ‘out of the classroom experience’. Maybe some of you are thinking, ‘What’s the point? Why do I want to be ‘out there’? Why do I want to get involved?’ Truth is we want to be involved with you. Yeah, yeah there’s give and take in every relationship, but that’s what this whole get involved thing is all about, relationship – being connected.

Did you know that by joining a Student Organization you dramatically increase your likelihood of graduating?
Say what? I am not saying that one particular student organization is for everyone, however with UNM’s and ASM’s selection, there should be no problem finding a group that shares your interests and goals. Just take a look at the list at the bottom of this page!

What’s in a Student Organization for me?
The most important aspect of choosing which student organization to join is whether or not their goals and initiatives fit with your own personal goals. All too often, people join student organizations just to add it to their resume then, end up hating their experience or neglecting to participate. Take some time to check it out. Go to some of the organization’s meetings. If the people in that group motivate you to pursue success - join it. Otherwise, continue looking. Keep in mind that this will be a group of people with which you will be spending a lot of your own free time.

What are some common experiences achieved from participating in a Student Organizations?
Leadership, personal achievement, a defined skillset (if joining one centered around that), time management, team work, friendship, conflict management, problem solving, creative solutions, public speaking, marketing, event planning, social media integration, etc.

Pretty much, a student organization is your opportunity to exercise whatever you want to advance in your personal development. You might not have the same opportunity to in the classroom setting. One best pieces of advice - participate in something that is different than what you are studying. This gives you depth of experience. If you are studying Finance, seek to diversify. Join a group outside your comfort zone instead of becoming the VP of the Finance Management Association. This is your chance to add to your skill set; make yourself more marketable. Brand You!
Commonly people acquire effective leadership skills while participating in student organizations, which for your future business owners, is irreplaceable. Running a student organization is like running a business. You learn much the same skills required for entrepreneurship.
What did I learn from the Student Organization that I joined?
For me, it has always been important to be involved in the community, so I am part of several students groups—each for a different reason.






Delta Sigma Pi,
the Professional Business Fraternity, allowed me to connect with a lot of career driven individuals and build long lasting relationship with people who have since moved into the professional world.  This means that I have personal connections with people working in companies like Goldman Sachs, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Thornburg, and other great companies!

I joined Collegiate DECA to broaden my horizons and take a chance. I participated in a Business-to-Business marketing case study competition, had the opportunity to travel to Salt Lake City, compete with students around the world who were also interested in much the same fields that I am. From this experience, I built a network of motivated students from New Mexico as well as from across the country!




Finally, because I wanted to give back to New Mexico, I joined the UNM Student United Way. This organization has helped me realize that I cannot take for granted all that I’ve been given and it’s helped me to be mindful of others. I am now contentiously aware of my community and realize there is always a way to give back.

Sounds interesting. What should I do next?
Take a look at the list below and select some student organizations you feel would interest you. Also, check out the Student Activities Center website (http://sac.unm.edu ) or Anderson’s Student Organization website (http://www.mgt.unm.edu/students/organizations.asp ) to find their next meeting date or email the leader of the group to see about joining them at their next meeting! Don’t be shy.  Bring a pencil and notebook, take notes, and make some contacts!

In spring 2014, I will have completed my BBA with concentrations in Finance and Entrepreneurship. I like to be as involved on campus as possible. I also enjoy our great state – go camping when I am able and I like to play guitar.

Harnessing Your Inner Strategist

 


The topic of improving one’s craft came up during a conversation I had with Albuquerque guitar great Lewis Winn. Lewis described an inward-looking process of continually evaluating musical tendencies while continually seeking inspiration from others. The process Lewis described of self-evaluation and constant improvement is surprisingly similar to the internal and external evaluation processes that are key components of strategic management.

Most strategy courses and texts are built upon two broad principles: (1) Strategic organizations proactively seek to identify and improve upon their weaknesses through constant self-evaluation and reflection. (2) They additionally stay in touch with the world around them to establish important linkages, as well as to identify potential opportunities. While intended to be applied at the group or organizational level these two principles can be extremely valuable at the individual level.

We all have weaknesses. For some it is quantitative ability, for others it may be public speaking.  Harnessing one’s inner strategist involves active and honest self-assessment to identify weaknesses and develop strategies to turn these weaknesses into strengths.  While working to identify and improve upon individual weaknesses is seemingly a daunting task, Anderson students have the ideal opportunity to do just that.  Finance courses are exceptional at developing quantitative skills;  marketing courses and strategy courses are effective at developing analytic thinking; accounting courses help instill discipline and organization. In addition, dozens of courses at Anderson have components focusing on writing, public speaking, creativity, as well as numerous other important skills.

Simply attending the great courses offered at Anderson is not enough.  Proactivity is a key element of strategic organizations. Students can harness their inner strategists by engaging proactively in their courses and focusing on how the material and assignments covered in their courses can help improve weaknesses and/or enhance their strengths.  Going beyond course materials with additional reading and research or even taking advantage of the various writing and math tutoring resources at UNM and Anderson are certainly ways to instill a proactive strategic approach address one’s weaknesses.

Harnessing one’s inner strategist additionally involves staying in tune with and engaging the outside world.  Recognizing the key events and trends that occur at the local, national and global level is certainly a start; however engagement is a must. Seeking out opportunities to establish ties with community and academic organizations, as well as professional associations, is extremely important. The value of active engagement is immeasurable.  The information and relationships achieved through external engagement can be catalysts to opportunities that would otherwise not be available.

Individual improvement and external engagement are lifetime endeavors. Sadly, many professionals neglect the activities needed to sustain such endeavors. Begin harnessing your inner strategist at Anderson to build the foundation for lifetime personal development and external engagement.

But what I’m really saying is that if you work hard, be determined to reach your goals, and utilize the resources around you, your dreams just may come true. As a student ambassador here at Anderson, let me give you my perspective and insight into reaching your dream career.

Have A Vision:  Where do you want to go and what do you want in your future? Is it success? Is it a type of position? I always knew I wanted to be successful, and when I entered Anderson, I was in awe of the many opportunities I could grab to make that happen.  After taking a few classes, I realized my passion was marketing. But it’s not just enough to say, “I enjoy marketing.” What I really wanted was to become a marketing director.  It’s about having direction to where you are headed. Or, as in another analogy, “I really enjoy kids maybe I should become a teacher.” Knowing why you’re doing what you’re doing is beneficial in keeping you on track of what you really want to happen. Think of vision as a guideline to success and to your dream career.

Grow Your Network:  Expand your relationships with the 3 P’s:  Peers, Professors, and Professionals. In order to do this, it may require you stepping out of your comfort zone if you’re shy, or grabbing a hold of opportunities for social interaction. When I entered Anderson, I was a shy student. I went to class, did the work, and was nervous to go to events. Now that I’ve been in Anderson a few years, I can say that growing my network has been very beneficial to me. The support system at Anderson is incredible. Peers connect and help each other out, professors reach out to you, and professionals that visit Anderson are thrilled to meet you. From my experience, I knew I had to grow my network, and in fact, I really wanted to! It was then I decided to make more friends, get to know my professors, and go to events where professionals were in attendance. One thing led to another, and soon I found myself speaking in front of 600 Anderson alumni and community leaders at the 2013 Anderson Hall of Fame Awards Banquet. I would not have had that opportunity if professors and professionals here at Anderson did not know who I was. 

Capitalize On Opportunities:  Workshops, events, organizations galore! Anderson provides many great resources for you to expand your skills, knowledge, and again, grow your network! Here’s my advice: Say “Yes”. I know we are all busy and have many things on our plate, but if you have some free time, the answer should always be yes. What do you have to lose? Nothing, when what you have to gain is knowledge from Career Services workshops, increased networking opportunities, and resume building by joining organizations. I know for a fact that if I had not said yes to as many things as I did, I would not have a full-time job waiting for me at graduation. Why not take advantage of every opportunity to reach your dreams, am I right?

Polish Your Materials:  Resume, cover letter, business cards, 30 second commercial, etc. Make sure your resume is up-to-date, you always have business cards in stock, and your 30 second commercial is superb! You never know when the perfect opportunity will come along, so be prepared. The best advice:  Set up a meeting with Kate Williams (Kwill07@unm.edu) and go to the career services workshops. If you have a job in mind, the best thing you can do is be prepared by making sure your materials are in line with that job. Before I got my internship with General Mills, I took my resume to Kate where she gave me awesome advice. I know I would not have gotten the internship without career services and her help. The right materials can lead you to getting the right job!

Do Your Best: Work hard, work hard, work hard. I cannot stress enough that doing your best in school will help you reach your dreams. I can say from my experience that hard work does not go unnoticed. The opportunities for scholarships, internships, and jobs will grow if you commit to work hard every day. One thing I also know is that employers care about grades. If you have a 4.0, it shows you worked very hard and went the extra mile to achieve that which is great news to employers and can increase your chances of getting the job.

Be passionate and committed to your success. I encourage you to think about my five principles for success during your time at Anderson. If you do, I know you will have success. I have seen many of my peers reach their dream careers along the way, and it’s because they had a vision, grew their network, took advantage of every opportunity, polished their professional materials and did their best every day. 

Always remember to #MakeHistoryASM.
