Research Analyst Intern

June - August 2018 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I greatly enjoyed the exposure to different industries, companies, and job functions. There was constantly something new to learn which helped the job stay exciting as I became more accustomed to the type of work I did on a daily basis. Additionally, I was allowed to play an active role in searches. This meant not only was I researching, I had the opportunity to produce major documents and be client facing very early on. The office also had a great culture that made work fun!

What I wish was different

Overall, I had a great experience. I do wish that I was provided with more formal feedback in the middle of the internship so that I could have had concrete things to improve on throughout the second half.

Advice

My favorite parts of my summer were working on assignments that were not typically given to interns. I would advise anyone in this position, or others, to find what interests you and actively request to work on those types of projects. If you are intentional about what you are doing you will get more out of the experience.
