Tbf the internship paid more than welfare

I’m stuck with people in phase 3: freshly graduated associates actively telling me on day 1 that my project doesn’t sound like something they will be passionate about and asking if we have any AI projects they can work on instead.

You guys are all laughing, but this actually happened to me. The associate then said that it was their intention to work with me to make sure we could set aside one day a week where they could unplug and focus on things that they felt were important to their development, like learning AI. It was completely disorienting. It was a well-structured ask, so it was obvious that it was something they had picked up in a book, or on a podcast, or out-of-touch business school class. SOMEONE had obviously told them that this would be a way to show initiative. But the audacity of having someone on day-one tell you that their expectation is that we work a 4-day work week so that we could spend the 5th day on coursera classes was impressive.

First mistake: liberal arts degree. MBB and BIG4 hiring random degrees just shows how little hard skills these firms have and why so many consultants have imposter syndrome
