Summer Scholar

June - August 2021 • Arlington County, VA

What I liked

With the project I was on, I had a lot of opportunity to try tasks I was interested in. Additionally, I felt as though I was working on real assignments that had some type of impact on the project. Everyone I worked with or talked to were very kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. It wasn't extremely stressful for me, so it was a "get what you give" kind of experience.

What I wish was different

Learning about other areas of work other than the project you are assigned to is totally up to your own initiative. There are plenty of opportunities to talk to individuals in other areas of work or attend seminars/panels for a specific area of work, but you won't actually get to work on them. You are confined to a project, just like a full time employee would be.

Advice

There are a ton of opportunities at Deloitte, whether or not you get to experience them is up to you. Take initiative to talk to anyone who does something that is interesting to you, that is how you make contacts, network, and traverse your way around a company this big.

No day was the same. Lots of experience with new technical skills and tons of help from full-time staff to make sure the internship went smoothly.

Nothing! The whole internship experience was great and I highly recommend for any finance or accounting student.

Advice

I would brush up on your technical skills with Excel and make sure you're comfortable with different formulas and just overall usage.

Business Analyst Intern

June - September 2021 • Washington, DC

What I liked

I liked the company culture, the people I worked with, and the variety of projects available.

What I wish was different

It seems to be very work-heavy, making it hard to perfect your personal work-life balance.

Advice

I would suggest networking with as many people as possible so that you can come out of it with lots of friends to reach out to post-internship.

Summer Scholar

June - July 2021 • Arlington County, VA

What I liked

The personnel

What I wish was different

in person

Advice

Don't be afraid to tell your managers if there is something about the experience you don't like. Either they can change it and make it better, or you learn that you don't match with the conditions in that position. No matter what you learn how they handle push-back.

M&A Intern

June - August 2021 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

I loved building up my network with people who are genuinely interested in my success for the future at the firm.

What I wish was different

I wish it could have been in person, but I still enjoyed the interaction I had being remote.

Advice

I would advise that future interns understand they need to be proactive in meeting partners and managers who can help them grow during this internship. Some other interns mentioned how the days were slow work-wise, but I found that setting up meetings with anyone and everyone each day made the time go by faster and I learned so much more because of it.

Audit and Assurance Intern

June - July 2021 • Parsippany-Troy Hills, NJ

What I liked

I really enjoyed being able to work with my engagement team and the different auditing programs that are used for audit planning, risk assessment & materiality, and to document workpapers. I got an in-depth view of what auditing is like outside of the classroom through hands-on experience through this internship.

What I wish was different

One thing I do wish was different was the length of the internship as well as the timing. I was an audit and assurance intern over the summer months which means that many clients at this stage are in the planning stages where there might not be much work. The timing of the internship would be more beneficial if it were to shift one month over from July to August where many clients are in quarterly reviews.

Advice

Try to absorb as much information as you can and definitely ask many questions no matter how small or big they are.

DEEP-Student

June - August 2020 • Hamilton, Pembroke

What I liked

I was able to still be employed and have my first experience in IT at Deloitte, and to support the many staff working from home. There was a lot if inter-region discussions and events between students as well.

What I wish was different

Not much, maybe a bit more work but I completed all requested tasks successfully and often offered to reach out to other employees working from home to ensure their IT support and documentation needs are met

Advice

Make sure your internet is good and Zoom is working, my experience this summer was unusual but very lucky because of how few students were able to work compared to previous years.

Business Technology Analyst Intern

July 2020 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I enjoyed learning more about Deloitte and meeting the people I am going to be working with.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship program had not been cut to only two weeks long. It would have been nice to be placed on a project, even if it were for a short period of time to get some actual experience from the internship.

Advice

Network, network, network. Craft an email with your story and send it to anyone you find interesting. Have a conversation with them and learn from them!
