Denison Consulting

Business Development Intern

May - August 2019 • Ann Arbor, MI

What I liked

I loved my experience at Denison. I was given a lot of autonomy and was making decisions daily that directly impacted the company. I was able to strengthen my communication skills through speaking with multiple clients and preparing reports for them. Everyone who works at Denison is so friendly and I had a lot of support from my supervisor!

What I wish was different

Maybe just a little bit more structure in terms of the summer internship.

Client Management Intern

February 2018 • Ann Arbor, MI

What I liked

I loved the opportunity to work at a small company-especially one that operates at such a global level. I got to know my coworkers vey well and they were able to take time to invest in my learning and growth. I got to get involved in a bunch of different business areas, outside of just my department. Because of the company size, I truly felt like I got to make an impact on the business.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship would have been more facilitated. In an entrepreneurial culture, it's up to the individual to find their own work (it's not usually clearly assigned).

Advice

I would share that it's important to bring your problem solving hat and be open to having your positions/beliefs about problems challenged. You can't tell a client "no"-you need to figure a way out. This experience challenged me to learn new problem solving techniques and make sense out of ambiguity.
