I unfortunately didn’t receive a full-time offer due to their lack of business needs in tax. But the experience was very good and ultimately led to me another job. I feel that it’s important to recognize that it’s all about efficiency. Building good habits to promote efficiency and staying organized with separate folders/files for different clients and also notes (answers to questions you had) is so important. It allows you to easily find and reference anything you may need. Asking less questions (unless they are holding you up for too long) and making your senior’s life easier will make the manager’s life easier, etc. it’s a domino effect, and it starts with the interns and associates. Be sure to communicate with your supervisors here and there, but don’t ask questions every 10 minutes! It’s a balancing act, and it takes time to master it. But as long as you do those things reasonably well and have a good attitude, you should get an offer!
My best advice for transitioning from intern to full time hire is doing the little things correctly. Show up on time everyday, be respectful of your colleagues, and be willing to accept constructive criticism for the engagements you’ll take part in. Most of the summer interns will be brought on as full time hires.
