Life at Yale SOM, Google Internship the Importance of Diversity

Learn how real students navigate their way through the business school admissions process and b-school itself with our  What is Business School Really Like?  series. Meet Dan, a Yale SOM student with a background in engineering. Dan, thank you for sharing your story with us! I understand your undergraduate degree is in engineering. How does your engineering background fit in with your post-MBA goals? Dan: I often get asked about the transition to MBA for those with engineering backgrounds. I feel that engineering gives a great base of skills that can be applied in a variety of contexts, including business school. Thinking analytically, working effectively in teams, and problem solving using a data-driven approach are all strengths that my engineering education helped me build. My engineering background inspired a love for working on innovative projects and digging deep into technical solutions. It has also guided me towards my goal of working on impactful, innovative technology. What was the most surprising aspect of the MBA application process? Dan: Most surprising was how enthusiastic and helpful all the people I reached out to were. From current students in the clubs to alums in the spaces I wanted to work, I was able to get a great amount of information and feedback. I would recommend reaching out to anyone doing something you are excited about from your programs of interest, and you will likely be positively surprised at the response. What work experience did you have at the time you applied to business school? Dan: Going into business school, I had four years of work experience as a Technology Consultant. From this experience, I knew that I enjoyed focusing on user experience, working directly with clients, and collaborating with developers and other technical teammates. I wanted to gain a more well-rounded understanding of business and add more varied work experience, so I decided it would be a good time to apply to business school. Congratulations on landing an internship at Google! Can you tell us about the application process and your internship experience? Dan: Thanks! Past the straightforward parts of applying, some useful things I did was think about how and why I use Google products, what past experiences were directly applicable to the role, and how working at Google could fit into my long-term development. After each interview (done over Google Hangouts video-chat), I felt even more excited about the work my interviewers described, and I was fortunate to get the summer role! So far, my internship experience at Google has been shaped by supportive and enthusiastic coworkers, lofty objectives towards impactful goals, and plenty of quirky, Googley fun. Can you share more about your role as an intern? What does a typical day look like? Dan: Of course every role is different but happy to explain mine! I am working to improve the support experience for an app. This involves analyzing the user journeys that lead to issues or frustration, recommending courses of action from a support perspective, and coordinating cross-functionally to build product solutions. My typical day involves researching issues and preparing proposals, presenting to stakeholders across the organization for feedback on feasibility and impact, and taking time to grab coffee or lunch with Googlers from across the organization. One of my goals is to meet many people and learn about what they are working on – something that the size and openness of Google is great for! What is a Yale SOM student ambassador? Dan: Student ambassadors serve as connection points for prospective students to learn more about the Yale SOM program and what current students are involved in. I am involved or affiliated with the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management (CGSM), the Technology Club, the Data Analytics Club, and the Hockey Club. If any prospective students have questions on those areas or are generally interested in Yale SOM, my contact information is listed on my page and I am always happy to connect! What is the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management? What are the benefits of membership? Dan: The Consortium aims to improve the representation and inclusion of traditionally underrepresented minorities in business and leadership. As a prospective applicant who is interested in business school and the mission of the Consortium, one can apply to Consortium schools through their reduced-fee application ( Besides the community and networking opportunities, membership (along with admission) allows you to attend a pre-MBA summit called OP to meet members across all the Consortium member schools and prepare for the transition to business school. At Yale, I have found a great sense of community with my Consortium peers, knowing we all support each other and share the organizational values. What is your favorite business school course (so far)? Dan: My favorite course so far has been the Employee Perspective. Going in, I did not expect to be very interested in the ‘human resource management’ class. After learning how to guide an effective people strategy – through job design, organizational structure, alignment of incentives, and more – I found myself excited to learn as much as I could from this class. What elective courses do you look forward to taking? Dan: One elective that I am hoping to take is Interpersonal Dynamics. Effective interpersonal relationships and being able to relate to others is essential for leadership in any organization. This course often comes up when I ask alumni for their favorite or most memorable course, and I am excited for the opportunity to try it. I also plan to take classes to strengthen my understanding of strategy, finance, and analytics. What has surprised you most about your program? Dan: A significant reason why I chose Yale SOM was the diversity I saw and experienced during my application and interview process. Even so, the depth of diversity has been a pleasant surprise. My classmates have widely varied backgrounds in terms of education, work experience, long-term goals, and more. Though there is still work to be done, the international and minority presence, including our large Consortium class, is a step in the right direction. This diversity creates an incredible environment for learning and inspiration that I am thankful to be a part of. What are your post-graduation goals? Dan: Tough question! At a high level, I would love to join an organization where I can contribute to innovative technology solutions, grow my analytical and interpersonal capabilities, and work with great people. These elements are personally important and will help me develop into the type of leader I want to become. If you could share one message with new MBA applicants, what would it be? Dan: Research! With the wealth of information from the schools, non-school sources on the internet, and student ambassadors, there are so many ways to learn all about an MBA program. Employment outcomes, life at the program, academics, or anything else you are curious about – please research, ask questions, and get informed before you apply. This will help you write great essays, interview well, and know for yourself  if the program is right for your goals. Do you have questions for Dan? Questions for us?

Examples Of I Have A Dream Speech - 754 Words

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s efficient use of logos and pathos in his â€Å"I Have a Dream† speech at the Lincoln memorial reached the hearts of a number of Americans, inspiring people to join their cause and to take action. Dr. King begins to use logos promptly in the second paragraph of his speech. He says â€Å"Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation.† This quote states that one hundred years ago, Score means 20 so five score meaning 100 years, historically referencing to when Abraham Lincoln the â€Å"great American† signed the Emancipation Proclamation and also referencing to Lincolns Gettysburg Address speech. The Emancipation Proclamation is what set all the slaves†¦show more content†¦In the sixth paragraph of Dr. King’s letter, he states â€Å"Birmingham is probably the most thoroughly segregated city in the United States. Its ugly record of brutality is widely known. Negroes have experienced grossly unjust treatment in the courts. There have been more unsolved bombings of Negro homes and churches in Birmingham than any other city in the nation.† The following statement talks about how these are the facts about the condition of the area. This factual statement is a form of logos, cleverly added in by Dr. King along with several other examples of logos, to persuade the readers with the facts of the case. The facts go on to prove the unfairness that is being distributed to the blacks in this community. Seeing how bad the situation is by looking at the information starts to get readers thinking about how to change it for the better. Dr. King’s letter has less pathos involved but what pathos it does include are bold and effective. One example in paragraph 14 makes readers heartache with this pathos remark about how it is for many African Americans â€Å"...when you suddenly find your tongue twisted and your speech stammering as you seek to explain to your six year old daughter why she cant go to the public amusement park that has just been advertised on television, and see tears welling up in her eyes when she is told that Funtown is closed to colored children, and seeShow MoreRelatedThe Art of Persuasion Essay examples918 Words   |  4 Pagesrhetoric, which was used in ancient Greek.

The History of Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a United States public holiday observed on November 11 of every year to honor all persons who have served in any branch of the United States Armed Forces. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, World War I ended. This day became known as Armistice Day. In 1921, an unknown World War I American soldier was buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Similarly, unknown soldiers had been buried in England at Westminster Abbey and at France at the Arc de Triomphe. All of these memorials took place on November 11th to commemorate the end of the war to end all wars. In 1926, Congress resolved to officially call November 11th Armistice Day. Then in 1938, the day was named a national holiday. Soon afterward war broke out in Europe, and World War II began. Armistice Day Becomes Veterans Day Soon after the end of World War II, a veteran of that war named Raymond Weeks organized National Veterans Day with a parade and festivities to honor all veterans. He chose to hold this on Armistice Day. Thus began annual observances of a day to honor all veterans, not just the end of World War I. In 1954, Congress officially passed and President Dwight Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veterans Day. Due to his part in the creation of this national holiday, Raymond Weeks received the Presidential Citizens Medal from President Ronald Reagan in November 1982. In 1968, Congress changed the national commemoration of Veterans Day to the fourth Monday in October. However, the significance of November 11 was such that the changed date never really got established. In 1978, Congress returned the observance of Veterans Day to its traditional date. Celebrating Veterans Day National ceremonies commemorating Veterans Day occur each year at the memorial amphitheater built around the Tomb of the Unknowns. At 11 AM on November 11, a color guard representing all military services executes â€Å"Present Arms† at the tomb. Then the presidential wreath is laid upon the tomb. Finally, the bugler plays taps. Each Veterans Day should be a time when Americans stop and remember the brave men and women who have risked their lives for the United States of America. As Dwight Eisenhower said: is well for us to pause, to acknowledge our debt to those who paid so large a share of freedoms price. As we stand here in grateful remembrance of the veterans contributions we renew our conviction of individual responsibility to live in ways that support the eternal truths upon which our Nation is founded, and from which flows all its strength and all its greatness. Difference Between Veterans Day and Memorial Day Veterans Day is often  confused with Memorial Day. Observed annually on the last Monday in May, Memorial Day is the holiday set aside to pay tribute to persons who died while serving in the U.S. military. Veterans Day pays tribute to all people — living or deceased — who have served in the military. In this context, Memorial Day events are often more somber in nature than those held on Veterans Day. On  Memorial Day, 1958, two unidentified soldiers were interred at Arlington National Cemetery having died in World War II and the  Korean War. In 1984, an unknown soldier who died in the  Vietnam War  was placed next to the others. However, this last soldier was later exhumed, and he was identified as Air Force 1st Lieutenant Michael Joseph Blassie. Therefore, his body was removed. These unknown soldiers are symbolic of all Americans who gave their lives in all wars. To honor them, an Army honor guard keeps day and night vigil. Witnessing the changing of the guards at Arlington National Cemetery is a truly moving event. Updated by Robert Longley

Essay on Slavery - a Cruel Institution - 2057 Words

Slavery as a Cruel Institution Cruelty can be defined as an inhumane action done to an individual or group of people that causes either physical or mental harm. Slavery, at its very core, was a cruel and inhumane institution. From the idea behind it to the way that it was enforced, it degraded the lives of human beings and forbade the basic liberties that every man deserves under the Constitution of the United States. Three major areas where cruelty was especially prevalent were in the slaves working conditions, living conditions, and loss of fundamental freedoms. Working conditions for slaves were about as bad as can possibly be imagined. Slaves worked from dawn till dusk and sometimes even longer.

Some of the boys would eat this up in three days- - then they had to steal, or they could not perform their daily tasks. They would visit the hog- pen, sheep- pen, and granaries. I do not remember one slave but who stole some things- - they were driven to it as a matter of necessity. I myse lf did this- (Drew 48). Mealtime was far from a joyous occasion.

Emotional development is a major factor in the overall development of a child. It is believed that emotional and social development are very closely entwined.

Apply Digital Solution to Work Processes

Question: Discuss about theApply Digital Solution to Work Processes. Answer: Types of Intellectual Property and Examples of each When one speaks of intellectual property, it refers to an entity using their own or combined ideas and knowledge to develop something which is supposed to be new and authentic. There are various kinds of intellectual properties present in Australia- Patents are rights which are created by law in relation to a substance, method, device or a process. The requirements for a creation to be registered as patent are that it should be novel, ready for usage and involves innovativeness (Bentley and Sherman, 2014). Examples of products that are usually patented in Australia are medical equipments, inventions in software, electrical devices etc. If there is any novel process or equipment which the company wishes to protect, they can patent it. Trademarks provide methods to identify a product or service which is unique. It helps customers to differentiate a particular business from others (Greenhalgh and Rogers, 2010). A trademark is often understood as a brand which assists the customer to identify the quality of the product. It can be a logo, signature, style of packaging, picture, smell, shape etc. With the help of a trademark, the company can safeguard their logos from infringement. Designs show the way a product looks the way it does. They include aspects like content, shape, pattern and intricacies. Examples of designs include design of currencies, medals etc. Copyright refer to concepts and ideas which are creative in nature. These ideas are documented through electronic ways. The ideas should be original. Examples of copyrights include academic journals, computer programs, art etc. With the help of copyrights, a company can safeguard the original ideas of their employees (Ricketson et al., 2012). Geographical indications recognise a product which comes out from a particular region, territory. The product derives a quality and feature owing to its geographical origin. Examples include Australian wine. Australian Patent, Design and Trademark Databases to be Searched to Ensure Ideas are novel and does not Infringe others Rights With relation to patents, Australia has its own patent search system known as the AusPat. They serve as a very reliable and non exhaustive search system with relation to data on patents. It provides a free patent search tool for gathering information pertaining to Australian patents. This particular database on the full text searching was first released in the month of December of 2010. The database was already having 50% of its complete collections. There is a service called as the eDossier which gives the customers accessibility to a range of documents with relation to suits on patent applications (Moir and Palombi, 2013). Prior to the application for a trademark, proper search needs to be done to ensure that there are no existences of similar trademarks which are either registered or are pending for registration. The Australian Government has their search engine in relation to trademark searches known as Australian Trademark Online Search System (ATMOSS). Other than this search engine there are other things to be done (Clarke et al., 2011). Trademark classification search helps the individual or organisation to determine the class into which their particular product or service falls into and if other people are using similar trademarks in that class. With respect to designs, the Australian government have their particular designs database known as the AU Designs Data Searching which provides updated information on design registration and application present from the year 1986 (Lee and Sunder, 2014). List of Intellectual Property Rights which can be Used as a Part of the Infringement Strategy If the individual holds a patent to a process or invention and the person finds out that the patent is being copied and used without the persons perusal, certain strategy should be followed. The person can appoint a patents lawyer and send a letter of warning to the person infringing the patent. The person can opt to settle the issue through out of court settlement. The person can eventually sue the infringer in the court (Harris et al., 2013). This is completely dependent on what result the aggrieved person seeks. In case of trademarks, the person holding the trademark can display the symbol to show that the trademark has been registered. The person should update the details pertaining to address prior to the renewal of the trademark. The person has the right to oppose the registration of another trademark if he suspects it to infringe his own (Lemley, 2012). In case of designs, the person has to first get his design examined and should obtain a certificate of examination. Once the design is proved to be valid, the person is provided rights. If the person suspects the design to be infringed he should hire an IP professional. He can ask for a hearing proceeding to contest the right of the infringing party. Acts and Regulations Administered with Respect to Australian Intellectual Property With respect to patents there are certain Acts and regulations that are present. The Patents Act 1990 (Cth) (Patents Act) gives the present legal structure which governs the aspects of granting and administering of the patents applied in Australia (Nielsen et al., 2010). The Patents Regulations 1991 helps in administering of patents, outlines the functions and powers of the Commissioner of patents. For trademarks the main legislations and regulations are the Trademarks Act 1995 and the Trademarks Regulations 1995. These legislations speak about administration of trademarks. They also outline the powers and functions of the Registrar of trademarks (Bouchoux, 2012). The Copyright Act 1968 and the Copyright Amendment Act 2006 list the major provisions pertaining to administration of copyrights. The Designs Act 2003 and the Designs Regulations 2004 outlines the structure for the grant and administration of designs including industrial designs in Australia.
