What I liked

The working culture in EY was very collaborative, and the teams I worked on were very patient and welcoming to the interns! They taught us a lot and shared their experiences inside and outside of the work place.

Take advantage of the resources given to you at the firm, whether it is the peer advisors and counselors or the people on your engagement team. Don't be afraid to ask questions when you're stuck, and you'll learn a lot!

Tax Intern

June - August 2018 • San Jose, CA

What I liked

I had a chance to network with other interns and professionals within the field. Thus, I've learned so much about tax as well as the firm culture and people, which I'm absolutely in love with and would love to come back for full time. Also, one of the most unexpected thing is that I've met and made close friends with the interns, which I'm very grateful and happy about during and after the internship. Overall, this has been the most amazing summer and internship experience I've ever had!

What I wish was different

I wish the duration of the internship were longer, so I have a chance to learn more about the technical side of tax and the firm in general.

Advice

Be open and willing to get out of your comfort zone to reach out and expand your network with other professionals and ask as many questions as you can. Last but not least, have fun and enjoy the experience!

Launch Intern

June - August 2018 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

I loved the corporate culture and assignments I was put on. I also liked how I learned to network and conduct myself in a professional setting.

Launch Intern

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I enjoyed that each day was an extremely new experience, with new knowledge to be acquired. The site visits in Manhattan also shouldn't be underestimated. Lastly, I was able to meet so many people and make friends, ranging from other interns that grew up across the country, to staff 2s, to partners of the firm.

What I wish was different

I wish that there was consistent work. Some days, I was finishing tasks on my train ride home, while other days I was requesting work from anyone who could give me something to do.

Advice

Apply early! No, freshman year is not too early to get an internship, and you don't need to know anything about the practice going into the job. They are willing to teach you if you are eager to learn, regardless of your age.

Launch Intern

June 2018 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the company culture at EY as well as being able to work in teams as an intern and get insight into what it would be like to work at Ey

What I wish was different

I wish I had been able to stay a bit longer and do client work but I understand that comes at a later stage.

Advice

To go in with a positive attitude and maintain it. I think that the most important thing was attitude because the firm won't really be able to judge your technical ability at such an early stage but they can judge by whether or not you left a good impression on your team.
