This has been a whirlwind of an internship, providing some of the best experience outside of the classroom. It was hard to summarize all of the opportunities that I […] Read More...

Intern Perspective: What I Learned From Linchpin

By Nick Reitan

Nothing, in the span of your career life, provides you with a fresh start like looking for your first full-time job. If you’re an optimist, you think of this as the first step towards a bright and abundant future. If you’re a pessimist, it’s another step closer to your retirement. And, if you’re an empiricist, […] Read More...

I want to take this opportunity to break down the most common question used in interviews for internships: How will this internship prepare you for your future career goals?   If you’re like the majority of students, you may not know exactly what lies ahead. The hardest question you’ll face is, how do I get […] Read More...

Part 2: Knowing yourself

By Tony Roetzel

Puzzle (Summer Blog Theme) Growing up I had this idea that the world was puzzle and that every individual was a piece. Each person was unique in their own way but worked together to build a greater whole. I never understood how people found their fit, I simply assumed it’s one of those things that […] Read More...

The Power of Introversion

By Darby Fike

INFP. That is my 16Personalities’ type. It means I am loyal to my values, idealistic, adaptable and curious. But it also means I am an introvert, and someone reading this can probably relate to that. I don’t believe that one characteristic can define a person, but it definitely can play into their personality, just like […] Read More...

Allow me to indulge you with a quote that I’ve always seemed to enjoy. “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” This little piece is from Samuel Beckett’s Worstward Ho (1983) and seems to sum up most of life’s perpetual struggles.   I am no stranger to failure myself. I […] Read More...

And One Dash of Bittersweet Chocolate Chips

By Morgan Weiler

And lastly, I add one dash of bittersweet chocolate chips to my cooking bowl. Yes, I know the correct term is semi-sweet. I realize this. But in this moment, in my cliche cooking metaphor, let me make the switcheroo. Throughout my internship at Sundog, I have laid out all my ingredients: I began my journey delving […] Read More...

Stories Here, Stories There

By Morgan Weiler

  Stories here, stories there, stories everywhere! But why… WHY are social media stories taking over the universe? (Okay, I’m being dramatic)           After my first 3 months as a Sundog intern, I was asked to present on a subject that was new, relevant, even innovative. In August of 2016, the […] Read More...

How To Discover What Makes Your Co-workers Tick

By Josh Anderson

The Sundog office was abuzz last week with talk of the internet’s famous 16Personalities quiz. Loud discussions about how one’s results compared to those of colleagues filled more than one floor of the Fargo Multiband tower. The quiz itself is based on the decades-old Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, but the 16Personalities version packages the test with […] Read More...

The Desire to Learn

By Grant Moe

Since starting at Sundog as the Software Engineering intern, I’ve woken up every day motivated to learn something new. Coming from a very tech heavy background, I thought for sure I would ease right into my role. I was in for a very rude awakening. Wanting to contribute but being unsure how to do something […] Read More...
