Undercover Boss From A Business Graduate's Perspective

Undercover Boss From A Business Graduate's Perspective
CNBC

Throughout school, I was always interested in the "real life application" of the concepts I was learning about. I really enjoyed all of my business classes, but I desperately wanted to see my textbook chapters come to life. After graduating, I have found myself in a variety of industries. I enjoyed learning the products, analyzing trends and seeing how different companies operated. I was finally seeing the "real life application" of my textbook chapters.

I recently found myself watching a lot of Undercover Boss. It's a very entertaining show as well as a great way to learn about different businesses. It's impressive that upper level managers are willing to give up so many of their daily comforts to participate in the show. Many of the participants go from having a live in housekeeper to cleaning toilets themselves. At the end of each episode, each participant has a greater understanding of what happens on the front line.

The reveals are always the most emotional part of the show. Frequently, the employees had no idea that they were working alongside their CEO. More often than not, the participant gives monetary gifts to the employees they shadowed during their week undercover.

Another great benefit companies receive from participating in Undercover Boss is free publicity. Even after I finish an episode, I always have the featured company on my mind. Undercover Boss leaves viewers with an important takeaway; always take care of your customers and your employees.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
