Is taking an internship at a very good/very big agency worth It? Any horror stories of not getting a job and screwing yourself after an internship concludes?

Are you debating leaving a paying job in favor of an internship? Just trying to figure out what your options are. Generally, I think internships are good networking and learning opportunities. And having a big agency on the resume is a good start for a young career.

Also if you bust your ass as an intern and that company isn’t hiring they can help you find a job at another agency in the same holding co

Wasn’t worth it for me.

Not if it’s unpaid

Nothing is guaranteed, but if you show promise creatively and then put everything you’ve got into the internship you’ve got a shot. You may not have what it takes to make it, but you never know until you try.

As I think through my undergrad experience, I realized that I did nothing remarkable. “So few so” that I don’t know what to write for the essay.

Now I am in consulting and that IB experience seems to be more irrelevant. How dare I compete with the other wonderkids?

eBook or Online course? Hi all - curious as to what you’re preferred medium for learning and prepping about case interviewing. I’m a former EM at MBB and had coached and interviewed hundreds of folks (still do today). I know there’s a lot of material out there already but let’s assume I can add value and have a solid approach/methodology - would you prefer an an ebook or online course? Also what would you pay for each? (If anything at all lol)

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
