If you are like most Eller students, you spent this summer collecting resume items at an internship or other summer job. Often the caliber of this experience is affected by your boss at that job.
Josh Bersin from Bersin by Deloitte recently wrote an article for LinkedIn extolling the guidance and mentorship he received from his first boss, a man whose actions would help shape Bersin through his career:
“His philosophy was to give great advice, help us succeed, and always work as a team. I looked up to him and always “copied” what he did to make myself better. The few times he gave me specific advice, I really listened.”
Now we want to know, did you “love your boss?” What did you learn from him or her that you will take with you through the remainder of your college career and beyond?
Nominate your boss for a “Love Your Boss” award, and be entered to win an iPad mini for you AND your boss. We’ll notify your boss that you nominated him/her, and thank them for helping you have a good summer experience.

“My boss was exactly what I was looking for at the outset of this experience—someone who could mentor me in my professional development, as well as provide a great connection for me in the future. Working for him was a pleasure, as I felt throughout the summer I gained a greater sense of confidence and comfort in my work due to his teaching.”
