My Fisher Internship
Words of Advice

Written by:

The past twelve weeks have been more than I could ever ask for. I have personally grown so much and more than I could ever imagine. Whether it was learning new technology or about the business world, I know that learning will never be the same for me. My favorite part of the summer was all the different people I met. I worked with people from all over the world including Prague, Monterrey, Shenzhen and more. I had the opportunity to pick apart brains of consultants, partners, and senior executives from different areas within the company and from around the world. I quizzed them about their jobs, career paths and advice they would give to college students as well as the good, bad and ugly of being a “grown up”. Here is just some of their advice:

  • Happiness is most important and people can tell when you aren’t happy.
  • Never stop looking for new opportunities.
  • When you don’t see work as a challenge and only see it as work… It is time to move on.
  • Everything happens for a reason.
  • All you can do is your best.
  • College diplomas go a long way.
  • You are never going to know everything.
  • Everything will be okay in the end. If it is not okay, it’s not the end.

One of my favorite views of Pitt... I already miss this place!

I want to thank everyone at Accenture for allowing me this amazing opportunity. It has been a wonderful experience I will never forget! If there is some advice I can leave you with, you can learn from anything by taking advantages of these risk and opportunities. Also I want to thank you for taking time out of your busy day to read my blog and hopefully you have learned something from experiences.

 

All the best!
Erin
