PwC3: I'm also a relatively recent grad who worked several unpaid internships when I was in undergrad. However, as a student, I never specified "paid intern" similarly to how I don't currently specify "paid senior consultant" on LinkedIn.

Summer scholar, S&O intern, intern, glorified copier assistant... Pretty much anything other than paid intern

D3: I have, we'll see where she goes with it. S&O but I'm not sure what her major is. That's not necessarily true though I was a quant fin major and many of my peers took unpaid or minimum wage internships their freshman and sophomore years since most major banks/consulting firms don't recruit until you're a junior.

i dont get it, what is her official title? should it just say intern instead? idk how this works because slalom doesnt hire interns

Did you give her feedback, OP? Also are you HC? I'm assuming this intern is majoring in some liberal arts basket weaving BS and most of her peers are unpaid interns. Nobody majoring in STEM would ever take an unpaid internship.

Current S1 here. Is it okay if my resume experience is just: B4 Internship > Associate > Senior? (All in the same firm/practice) Never done other internships. The only other thing I could include is a student assistant job I had in college. Not sure if that's even relevant. Guess just the progression at this 1 firm is enough? Just looks a bit incomplete on the resume.

I did an internship with a boutique consulting firm that got extended for a full year while I was in school full time as well. On top of that I have 16 months of experience in my B4/T2 consulting firm, and I have a ton of other experience on top of that interning at banks and startups. TLDR; I have 3+ years of experience, 1 year at a small consulting shop and 1.5 years at B4 upon graduation. Is it true that none of this experience really counts?

Perpetually an intern... working at the same company for 1.5+ years and easily doing the work of a junior creative, & taking the heat off my CDs daily; sometimes I’m the only AD on big jobs.

How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?

Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..."

You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
