Just got an offer to join a consulting firm. Start date end of Aug. I also received an offer from State Dept for fall internship (~10hrs/wk). Both are virtual for now. Is it worth talking to new firm about potentially doing internship at State? It’s something I’m interested in for future goals. Who do I talk to? (HR or MDs)? Thanks!

I think doing an internship and a full time job is too much. Consulting generally is not a 40 hour per week gig. Also depending on the firm can be a conflict of interest.

Unfortunately I doubt that your firm would allow you to do two internships at the same time - you can absolutely ask, but most places that would be a non-starter.

If they gave you an offer, it means they need help now and want you to start at that date. Everything is planned out. It’ll be tough to ask them to hold on the start date, which may even put that job in jeopardy.

Oh I don’t want to delay the start date. I meant doing the internship on top of the consulting. I can handle an extra 10 hours/wk. Any advice?
