I learned more in just 3 months doing this internship than I did while in college.

Downers

There is nothing that I didn't like about the internship.

5.0 of 5 stars

Portland, OR | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Having full autonomy, if I felt like working I did, if not then I simply did not show up. I've never been one for the typical 9-5, and being able to set my on schedule was a huge priority for me.

Downers

This is more of office issue, but since we are located in downtown Portland we have to pay for our own parking. It can get really expensive at 10-15 dollars a day.

Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard, this is an amazing opportunity with limitless potential in he future. If you were to flush this down the drain it would be like the career that got away.

Advice to Management

I've got no advice for management, they are doing everything in their power to make it the best possible experience for those that actively participate.

Sample Interview Questions

How do you feel about self guided work?
Are you self motivated?

I can't remember any more, i've been here for two years and don't remember any exact questions from my interview.

Always learning, actively involved in meetings with other advisors, growing confidence to build a practice, helping others with creative solutions, designing financial plans for families and providing significant value and meaning to what I was doing

Downers

Needs a little more organization of curriculum on weekly meetings, but very good training so nothing too much

Very elite, over-dress rather than under-dress. Internship has been Top 10 for multiple years so impress and be proactive. Discuss with others what it is like as a career, especially those who were once interns as well
