Intro

So you want to be an International Business major.

Well.... after 5 years of college and a year in Corporate America, I must say that I have some pretty funny and interesting stories to share about my experiences. I left the University of Rhode Island with three majors and a lot of great memories involving strip poker, jell-o shots, leopard carpeted bars, and politics. There are also a few academic-based memories, some from my study abroad experience in France, and the most recent crazy landlady from Maywood. When the inevitable "So, what's your major?" line comes up it's always the same thing... "Well, actually I have 3 majors." "Three majors! What are you? Masochistic?" (Actually it wasn't so bad until I had three Capstone, or hardest classes ever, at the same time) Then I have to go on and explain that I majored in Marketing (the original choice), French (roped into it by a very persuasive French-born professor), and International Business (what was I thinking?!?). Sometimes I'd even get the "Ahhh so you're a French major... Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?” Hey listen, just because I'm a French major doesn't mean I'm easy!

Now I find myself at Tech Company X (I believe in protecting the identity of my victims) doing the -8:30 until whenever I can tear myself away thing - five days a week. I work on the Sales Training team (we even had a two day retreat once to come up with our own logo) developing eLearning and doing everything else it takes to provide global sales training to our sales force. That’s the easy way out of explaining what I do…

  3. Wow what a cool blog you have here! I am impressed. You really put a lot of time and effort into this. I wish I had your creative writing skills, progressive talent and self discipline to produce a blog like you did. Your blog really does deserve an honest compliment. If you have some time, stop by my site, it deals with stuff like, click here: residual income and then feel free to e-mail me with your words of wisdom.

    P.S. I'll sure put the word out about your site and I would appreciate any business you may send my way...

    Later, Scott ;-)
