What I liked

What I wish was different

Advice

Take advantage of all networking opportunities while interning. I attempted to grab coffee at least twice a week with someone at the firm and it helped me get assigned to multiple different projects and opportunities during the summer. I also will be returning to a huge network when I return for my next internship.

Intern

June - August 2018 • New Delhi, Delhi

The mentors were very helpful and flexible with the tasks they assigned. They gave me freedom to decide the type of research and work I would be interested in, and then gave me the tools and knowledge to help with that.

Advice

Always ask the mentors for extra work. Underpromise and overdeliver. Be willing to ask questions and volunteer to put in extra effort.

Accounting internship

July - August 2018 • Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

What I liked

I love the people who I worked with and how much I learned from this experience. I also liked the work environment that I was in. Even though I was a first- year student, people treated me like a real employee. They challenged me with new tasks every day. I got a chance to learn things that I have not learned in school.

What I wish was different

I wish my internship was longer so I could learn more. Since I was only a first-year student, I did not get paid for the internship but it would be great if I did.

Advice

Be confident and ready to network with as many people as possible. Have an open mind to learn new things and don't be scared to make mistakes but also learn from your mistakes.

Tax Intern

June - August 2018 • Hoboken, NJ

What I liked

The people I worked with, the internship program activities, the work culture and the location.

What I wish was different

Being this a 8 week internship, I wish it was longer. Considering training week, the July 4th week, and the International Leadership Conference at the end, the weeks of actual work are only 5 and since I enjoyed my time working I wish there were a couple more weeks to keep learning about my work responsibilities.

Advice

EY really puts a lot of effort to give you an unforgettable internship experience. From the training in Chicago to your daily work responsibilities to your co-interns and the last week at the International Leadership Conference at Disney, there is a lot to learn and amazing people to meet. Your only job is to be proactive and demonstrate a genuine interest for what you do. Whether you want to stay with the firm or follow a different path, the experience will be one to remember. Form connections, learn about the industry and have fun.

IT Risk Advisory Intern

June - August 2018 • Boston, MA

What I liked

Great professional development workshops and opportunities to meet people. Lots of client interaction.

What I wish was different

My team was very difficult to work with. Gave very technical explanations when describing tasks and did not have much tolerance for mistakes or asking questions. They were very unfriendly and excluded me from client visits.

Advice

Take very detailed notes and make sure you know how to do the task from start to finish before you start it. Don't trust anyone.

Audit Intern

June - August 2018 • Berlin, Germany

What I liked

I loved participating in the EY Intern Global Student Experience program where I got to participate in an audit practice in the US and also in Germany.

What I wish was different

I wish I spent more time getting to know my team in the U.S., it seemed very reserved and I wasn't able to feel completely comfortable with the entire team by the end.

Advice

Be prepared to stay longer hours at time, and know that each team has very different kinds of cultures and experiences. One team may be very reserved and quiet, while the other teams might like to go out and have lunch together everyday.
