Deloitte interns should all be returning. Lol. They already got their full time offers (at least verbally). I doubt any of them are betting on this job market being better by the time they graduate next Summer🤷‍♂️

At the start of every morning I make them join a Teams meeting and inform them that they are expected to leave it on with the webcam uncovered so that I can be sure they’re doing work.

Could have them shadow some client work if that’s cool with project leadership? Don’t know your firm or what these interns have on their plate during their (likely) shortened virtual experience. If I had some interns, Id probably bring them on some internal calls Re:client projects, maybe a few client calls, if they’re not sensitive and the client is open to it...if you’re involved in any reinvest activities, that could be another option? Have them help build out some documentation / collateral ? Lots of options available... Shoot, this time last year I had two rockstar interns that were better than most first year analysts I’ve met...wish I still had them on my team!

Things that have been working for me: - I have a 15min checkin with the intern on my team each morning to catch them up on the overall project - I allow them to listen in on my more informal client calls - I take extra time to comment on any changes I make to their work product so they know where to improve - I gave them ownership over an entire low-priority deliverable (research report) that I would’ve picked up myself in 4 weeks. keeps them occupied and if they don’t deliver anything useful, no harm done - I sometimes allow them to literally just watch me work (sharing my screen) and show them my thought process/some neat little tricks

Not sure why there’s been zero effort on their end? Kind of bummed. Anyone else been there?

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
