Keep Calm and Intern

Hattie Hynes is a Recruiting/HR Marketing Intern with Milliner & Associates. She will graduate from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business in 2018.

What grade do I need to get on the midterm in order to get an A in the class?

How much sleep do I really need tonight?
