Internship Interviews

In no way would I like this to be taken in a pretentious manner and I am positive this does not happen in all interviews or a majority of interviews, but I am writing this because it does happen. I had a successful interview for the Healthcare Institute of New Jersey which is a public relations firm and lobbying company for the 20+ pharmaceutical and medical instrument companies in New Jersey. Not many people know New Jersey is the capital of the pharmaceutical industry. Drug companies are to New Jersey like cars are to Detroit or Microsoft and Apple are to Washington. The point is during the interview, the Vice President of Operations that was questioning me made a comment that it was very impressive that I went to Cornell. While Cornell may only be a name, it is a name that carries significant weight and makes a difference in the “job” world. I go to Cornell University is something you can say with pride.
