Lyons says H and B deliberately has its interns work on wide variety of tasks including activities not directly connected with its business such as town meetings and holidays celebrations.

Garcia says she's learned a interns isshould be responsible for at least one specific project, Lyons says teaching interns has also helped him grow as a manager. Garcia stresses the importance of making internships enjoyable.

Just the opposite:

Exactly the opposite, in other words, complete opposite. You might read something like

Analysts predicted higher gas prices this summer but just the opposite has occurred. Prices have dropped 10%. Or someone asked you, Has Mary lived up to her good reputation? You might say, Just the opposite I'm afraid we were very disappointed at with her work.

Experience has taught me:

Garcia has learned through experience, she means.

Experience has taught me that first expressions are often wrong for example. And You cancould put many other words atin the place of experience, you might say my losses on the stock market have taught me to go for safe long term investments. Or being a father has taught me to put family before work.

In a business context:

Garcia uses context to mean the circumstances , the setting in which something happens

And which affected. Context is also used to describe the words or statements that surround another word or statement and affect its meaning.

If someone asked me to translate the Japanese word 真面目 for example, I'd ask what’s the context, because 真面目 can be translated many different ways depending on full sentence or situation which it is being used in.

Look good on a resume:

Well thisIt means just what it sounds like something will be impressive one wasit's read on someone’s resume. We also have the expression look good on paper. Which means something is impressive when you read about it like on a resume or in a proposal, for example. But it may not be an accurate representation of its real value. A job candidate might look good on paper for example have an impressive resume, but not actually do a good job when he’s hired.

Show someone the ropes:

This expression uses the image of sailors handling the ropes on a ship, on a sailing ship. If we show someone the ropes we show them how to do something. We also teach people the ropes and they learn the ropes. Imagine you are using some software for the first time. You could say to thea colleague, I've never used this before, could you teach me the ropes?

Overlook:

Overlook is often used to mean miss something, fail to notice, or recognize it.

You could say his contribution to this project is completely overlooked. He didn’t get any credit at all.

Tied-dyed: This takes me back.

Tied dying is extremely common in at Us summer camps for at least it was back in my day. When you tied dye a T shirt you tie up one or more sections.So dye can't reach them. And that produces patterns of white and colors on the shirt.
