Work in Progress...

Yes, I know it's been a long time without blogging. I must say the last term was exhausting, with a vast array of papers and projects that I obviously procrastinated to the very last minute, increasing the stress levels to new records.

Also, my blog received an award. It was nominated for the "Best of Blogging" 2007 of ClearAdmit.com. So next time I have some free time I will try to upload the tiny cute logo that I got as a prize.

Now, it's been 6 weeks into my internship, and tomorrow we have the "Office day", where we will go somewhere outside London to play polo. I must say that I'm extremely happy with it. I find everybody in the office, and especially my project team, very nice, crisp and smart. We work relatively good hours, which means that there's nobody in the office after 7pm. And the projects I've been assigned to are really interesting and international: in the past weeks I've been in Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland.

Overall, I think I'm enjoying enormously being a consultant, and I didn't find any of the negative aspects that people had warned me about: no big egos, no long hours, no "selling smoke". I'm doing some serious work, analyzing a lot of data, coming up with frameworks and preparing presentations and client workshops. So, in a 1-7 satisfaction scale (typical Marketing stuff) I'd rate my internship with an 8.

Moreover: comparing it with the rest of the people I've talked to (be it in consulting, banking, industry or other), I have only found one person as satisfied with his internship as I am with mine. Guess what, he's also a blogger...;)

My only complain is that you cannot call it a "Summer Internship", because we haven't had any Summer in London at all!!!
