October is one of my favorite months with the Exceeding Expectations kids.  As you all know, our top priority for the kids is, and always will be, education. That said, every October we participate in two athletic events that I feel are significant in laying the groundwork necessary for them to be successful in the academic world and in their adult lives.  The first of these events is the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) triathlon, aptly called “The Best Day in Triathlon.” Here’s a brief overview from their website:  “In 1994, three friends started a triathlon fundraiser to help one man regain his independence after a tragic accident left him a quadriplegic. From one came many, and Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) took root in the belief that sports and an active lifestyle are a pathway to more in life. Since that fundraiser 25 years ago, CAF has been committed to breaking the financial barrier that individuals with physical challenges face to participate in sports and live a healthy and active lifestyle.”  Participating alongside challenged athletes in a very tough race gives our kids an additional perspective on their own lives. The racers on the course with them face obstacles that they

Life as a Boingo Intern: Part 4

-


This guest post is authored by Jeremy Mintz, Boingo’s summer marketing intern and Junior at Tulane University. To tell you the truth, I was a little worried. Never have I taken on responsibility like this before. But while I write in sadness as my internship comes to a close, I am happy to report that I have truly come a long way. I have learned so much this summer at Boingo, not only about marketing and the workplace in general, but about myself. Aside from individual projects and assignments that I’ve gained tremendous experience from, perhaps the most captivating part has been witnessing how the business comes together through meticulous collaboration and teamwork. A prime example of this was the Hackathon, a marathon style event that saw engineers team up with marketers and HR specialists join forces with finance gurus in an attempt to create an idea that could catapult the business forward. I was able to be a part of it by acting as an ambassador, along with Spencer Johnson, with whom I forged a friendship throughout the event that kept us at the office well beyond normal work hours. Although I did not contribute to a team, I

Life as a Boingo Intern: Part 3

This guest post is authored by Jeremy Mintz, Boingo’s summer marketing intern and Junior at Tulane University. It’s now the end of week 9 and I am having mixed feelings about my internship coming to an end in three weeks. On one hand, I am looking forward to going back to New Orleans and seeing my friends. But on the other hand, I am sad to leave Boingo, a place that I have come to know and love over the past two months. The fun and energetic vibe that exists within these four walls is truly contagious and conducive to success. Never did I think that coming to work every day would bring me so much joy. Waking up routinely for work is without a doubt better than waking up routinely for school. But then again, maybe Boingo has just spoiled me and I am in for a culture shock when I next return to the workforce.

This guest post is authored by Jeremy Mintz, Boingo’s summer marketing intern and Junior at Tulane University. It’s now week seven and I’m happy to report that I’m fully integrated and settled in. Now even more so than before, I feel like a valued member of the marketing team. Being immersed in meaningful projects, sitting in on important meetings, going out for drinks with the marketing department (and ordering water because the drinking age is still 21 for some odd reason), and even taking part in photo shoots, I have nothing but positive experiences to share.

This guest post is authored by Jeremy Mintz, Boingo’s summer marketing intern and Junior at Tulane University. It’s true. As the intern, I’m the low man on the totem pole. But don’t let that fool you. In just my third week at Boingo, I feel just as valued as any other employee. From the first day of work I have felt welcomed and wanted. Everybody was quick to let me know that if I needed anything, they were there to help.

According to the corporate consulting firm Bain, winning cultures combine two key elements—high performance values and behaviors + unique personality and soul. We know we have both. From the founding of the company in 2001, culture came first at Boingo. We built our culture as thoroughly as we built our Wi-Fi network. We consciously built a company where people wanted to work and people would succeed.
