About ZS Intern Program

An internship at ZS offers a unique opportunity to those entering their final academic year of a bachelor’s, master’s or MBA program to experience what it’s like to be part of the ZS team. ZS internships are considered apprenticeships to full-time positions, and interns are staffed with and work directly for client teams.

Interns create and deliver solutions for clients and project teams. Interns leverage their analytic, synthesis and communication skills to derive insights and solve business problems. In particular, Interns work on one or more project teams and may apply problem-solving frameworks to client issues, support clients in change initiatives and employ standard analytic techniques to help guide client decisions. At the end of the internship, interns are evaluated and considered for a full-time employment offer.

Responsibilities:
• Leverage problem solving skills and frameworks to develop solutions to client business problems;
• Conduct market research and/or desk research to derive insights and inform client decision making;
