Life at Deloitte
Victor, 2015 Summer Intern in Consulting
Acquiring unique experience outside the classroom
Victor acquired experience that he could not have gained in a classroom by joining the Deloitte Consulting Summer Internship Programme in 2015.
He operated in our Technology Advisory department in Consulting and will join the team again after his studies in 2016.
Given that I wanted to use the technical competencies that I developed at EPFL, Deloitte’s Analytics team appeared to be the perfect place for me.
During my first week, I joined a team working on an interesting and innovative project. What I most appreciated was the fact that I was trusted, given tasks and responsibilities that exceeded my expectations. I was eager to improve my skills and my superiors were able to get the best out of my motivation. By taking part in regular meetings with experienced colleagues, I developed a sense for business administration and improved my communication and organisational skills. I acquired experience that I definitely could not have gained in a classroom.
In addition, the Consulting Summer Internship Programme was well organised and included Induction Days as well as feedback sessions. I also participated in various events organised by Deloitte during which I met people from other teams and departments. This allowed me to build solid ties that go beyond the work environment.
To sum up, I cannot emphasise enough how much impact these three months have had on me. I was able to enhance my skills in diverse fields by meeting an astounding number of smart and inspiring people from different origins and backgrounds. From the start, I felt like an important team member and I am looking forward to joining Deloitte as a Business Analyst after my studies. Deloitte is a great place to work and grow; I can only recommend the Summer Internship programme to students interested in Consulting.
