My specific placement was not something I was passionate about, but my group helped me so I can move to a new team next summer.

Salt Lake City, UT | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects of the internship was the mentoring I received from my fellow co-workers. I felt very appreciated and all of the tools I needed to have a successful internship were presented to me.

Downers

60 hour work weeks were hard to get used to, however it was manageable.

Advice to Potential Interns

Learn how to effectively communicate work items to others. When asked a question, do not be a deflector, rather be a receptor. Always ask "why?".

Sample Interview Questions

Describe a time where you worked in a group and encountered a problem. How was the situation dealt with?

How would you deal with time-sensitive work tasks?

Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?

Advice to Management

From what was offered to me as an intern, I feel as though all areas of the firm was well developed enough to the point that I personally did not feel that there needs to be some form of change for it to become a "better" place to work.
