I’ve managed to complete the first two weeks of my internship, and so far I have nothing but good things to say about Deloitte and NYC. The first week was basically an introduction to the culture of Deloitte. As far as I can tell everyone seems to be very helpful. So far they have stressed the importance of networking within Deloitte. Obviously it’s good to connect with your co-workers (if you’re planning on receiving a full-time offer, people better know who you are), but it’s also important to maintain your contacts because they may be useful down the road. Furthermore, when you’re looking for internship/full-time positions, it is extremely important to utilize our alumni network. OSU is HUGE, so think about the size of our alumni network, and use it! One of the partners at Deloitte in NYC is an OSU alumni, and he has been very helpful throughout my recruiting process.
Living in NYC
My favorite thing about living in the city is the convenience of the subway. No matter where you need to go, everything is just a subway ride away. The best way to describe NYC is to say that everything is taken to the max. This applies to career opportunities, social life, diversity, fast-paced living, fun, and PRICES!
I’m living at NYU for the summer. For those of you who obtain internships in NYC next summer, definitely look into this option. It’s very convenient and it’s one of the cheaper options in Manhattan.
Next time I’ll tell you a little more about my job responsibilities. I’m currently working with Morgan Stanley, so I’ll let you know how that goes. Make sure to check for updates.
