Interns are expected to operate autonomously from day 1. Might as well not even show up.

OP: even if u master the training, u would be clueless in the field. Just learn how to take lunch n dinner orders n donot mess up seniors or mgr's orders! Learn to smile but dont talk about onion news loudly n aimlessly. Ask questions without spinning ur rustic wheels. So chill at training n dont do too much of booze.

You have to be very comfortable with being uncomfortable. That’s the only way to survive. We don’t have the type of career where you will know everything.

Just ask questions. It’s better to ask up front and ask whoever you’re working with to walk you through an example

You are fine. PwC is a patient and understanding place. Just ask questions as has been said above

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?

I need to know if I’ve pigeon-holed myself. I have an undergrad in music business, and got a lot of good experience then. Worked in live events for 4 years before returning to law school, intending to practice in entertainment law (specifically music). Got a summer internship at a boutique entertainment firm, but no offer due to the small market. Moved to a larger market, but I’m not in one of the “hotspots”. I’m in-house currently, and have moved up quickly. (Cont.)
