Refrain…Reframe…Receive

Diane Harrison is a senior at IUPUI Kelley School of Business. She is a Recruiting & HR/Marketing Intern with Milliner & Associates.

Have you ever felt like life happens so fast and that you never really have time to do the things you want? Maybe you feel like life is passing you by.

Do you feel like other people get all the “lucky breaks”? If you were presented with some of the same opportunities, you could achieve some of the same successes too. Well, just stop that! Change your perspective and look around you.

What does opportunity really mean? According to the Oxford Dictionary, opportunity is defined as “a set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something.” Because you decided to further your education and enroll in college, this presents you with many opportunities that can help shape you as a person and your future endeavors. Did …

‘Soak Up Everything You Can’

Madison Foster is a senior at the Kelley School of Business at IUPUI. She is currently a Recruiting/HR Marketing Intern with Milliner & Associates, LLC in Indianapolis.

How many times in your college career have you heard the words, “You need to do an internship”?

I can’t even begin to count the amount of times I heard that phrase. Most of the time I would shrug them off. I work full-time and go to school, I can’t just quit and jump into a temporary job that may or may not pay.

However, as I approached my senior year at the Kelley School of Business in Indianapolis, I finally started to look into internships. My decision was solidified when I spoke to my advisor, who told me it is difficult to get into the HR field with no HR-related experience. So I searched and searched for the perfect internship and …

Intern lets her personality shine

Ashley Hager is a fall intern with Milliner & Associates, a staffing and recruiting agency for accounting, finance, HR and administrative employment positions.

In October, I attended the Indiana Means Business Career Fair. It seemed like a normal career fair with students, alumni and employers. It was a unique experience for me, though.

I had the pleasure of attending as an employer and as a student. I got to see how it operated on both ends of the spectrum. I must say, it was extremely interesting and I learned a lot.

I have been to a career fair before, solely as a student. I have been the nervous college kid walking up to an employer, not quite knowing what to say or how to act.

This time, I got to be the employer that nervous college kids approach. I was nervous at first myself, but I was passionate about …

Intern has many reasons to be thankful

Firdas Abamislimova is a senior at IUPUI’s Kelley School of Business. She is studying Management, HR and International Studies.

Can you believe Thanksgiving has come and gone?

It seems like I interviewed for my internship with Milliner & Associates (M&A) just a few weeks ago; the time has passed quickly for me.

As the Fall season winds down, this is a great opportunity to contemplate all the things for which we can be thankful.

Here at M&A, we started celebrating Thanksgiving a week before the holiday. On November 19, our team had a pitch in, where everyone shared their homemade goods to show appreciation for each other. In order for our associates to spend a little extra time with family and enjoy the holiday, our office worked a half day on Nov. 25 and was closed the rest of the week. What a great opportunity for a family get-together!

Internship allows student to experience ‘gray area’

Ashley Hager is a fall intern with Milliner & Associates, a staffing and recruiting agency for accounting, finance, HR and administrative employment positions.

What thoughts come to mind when you think about the word “internship”?

Are they positive, negative or somewhere in between? I never really had an opinion about them. My professors kept saying how important they were, but I just couldn’t see the value at the time. Now, I’m disappointed I waited until my senior year to even start applying for an internship, but there’s no point in regretting the past. I can only change the future.

I started applying for internships knowing that they were extremely important and that I needed one to put on my résumé. I knew I would gain experience and knowledge, but I had no idea to what extent. My time here at Milliner & Associates is unlike anything I could have imagined. …
