  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

Job expo leads to internship

Justin Miller is taking a stance in his career with a summer internship from the BGSU Career Expo to peruse his dreams.

Miller, a student at the University majoring in accounting, will be a senior in the fall.

“I am almost finished with school, but I am blessed to have such an amazing internship to help out with my major,” he said.

Miller went to a Job Expo at the University where he talked to a Human Resources employee from Andersons Incorporated. After delivering an elevator speech, Miller was given an interview with her.

“After I got the interview I had got my offer letter that next week, went in for my drug test, and started that summer of 2013,” he said.

Andersons Incorporated is a publicly traded company with diverse interests that include agribusinesses such as grain and plant nutrients, railcar leasing and repair, industrial products formulation, turf products, retailing and, most recently, ethanol operations.

“I was the one to help Justin prepare his elevator speech and who informed him about the Job Career Expo, but I also know people who [were] associated with the company he interns for,” said Jordan Meador, an event planner at the University. “The company is a great company that one man built on his own that makes it possible for young men like Justin.”

Miller said the internship is paid, and worked through the summer full time Monday through Friday, nine to five.

A typical day for Miller at the internship is to go in and work on his assigned work from his supervisor.

Miller helped his supervisor with things such as stock testing and auditing.

“We did have different projects and different audits,” Bryant Helton, former intern at Andersons Incorporated, said. “ We went to Tennessee and had to do an audit or just office work.”

Miller went to the facility that the company bought in Tennessee and made sure they transferred the policies to the Andersons’ policy.

“The traveling is fun, everything is paid for and it was nice to be outside the office not having to pay for everything,” Miller said.

Helton said Miller talks about how his internship has changed his life tremendously.

“I know Justin loves this internship,” Helton said.

Miller said he enjoys the work he does.

“It’s nice to see the work that I have done translated into the audit that they have to do,” Miller said.

By having this internship, Miller feels that he was now able to go to the Job Career Expo this year and receive eight different offers from companies that wanted him to join their team.

“The companies were actually selling themselves to me this time,” he said. “They were persuading me and telling me why I should work for them, only because of the [internship] I have now and the experience it has given me.”

Miller has another internship at Owens Illinois in Perrysburg, Ohio. He sees it as being another great opportunity for him.

“I think students need to take advantage of the resources on campus,” Miller said. “I was able to get my resume how businesses would want it to look and I was able to get two interns just by attending this Career Expo.”
