Well, it’s that time again, another London post. It was interesting—over the last week I had a HUGE influx of work. One of my bosses went on vacation and another boss had just given me about 6 projects to follow-up from a marketing conference. In all, my to do list spanned about the length of 4 pages. It was insane. And a lot of my deadlines were that week or early the next week. The biggest problem was that I wasn’t given any information on which projects to prioritize and on top of that, my supervisors were contradicting one another, giving me more work, write something this way, re-write it that way.
Well, it’s that time again! Blog number 2; let me begin my blog by saying that I had no idea what to expect. London was so far and yet so near as I got on my delayed Iceland Airways plane. I had 5 hours to Iceland then 3 hours to London. Terrible. We arrived within one minute of my connecting flight’s take off. It was INCREDIBLY lucky that Iceland Air asked my plane to wait a small handful of passengers and I. We got on, and I was about half an hour late for the airport pickup from my Absolute contact, Banu. I was able to call her upon my arrival in Heathrow; low and behold, yet another person offered to wait for me! I was really relieved and really thankful. This was only one example of the kind and welcoming atmosphere that received me here in London. Every single one of my contacts, Guilia, Banu and Carla were all extremely accommodating and friendly. In fact, I have grown to become good friends with Giulia and Banu. Carla I have not been able to see as much, but she seemed really nice and I thought we could get along well! The employers at my internship in London have been equally friendly and I am excited to say I will be going to my boss’ “Work Stag Party” next week as he is getting married in July.
