Ask lots of questions. And then ask more. Expect to work hard. Even if the role in the team feels junior, roll up your sleeves and get stuff done. Be positive. Treat colleagues like humans. Relax and and enjoy yourself.

Come with a sense of humility. Recognize that it’s likely more work to have you and ramp you up for the team you are with than it would be just to do it themselves, and try to add value wherever you can even if it’s menial things like “I’ll be the one to figure out how to set up the printer in the team room.” The vast majority of interns do fine/get offers to return. The ones who don’t are typically attitude issues relating to arrogance or entitlement

All solid advice. Try and meet lots of folks and get a real feel for the culture as well

What type of consulting leads towards working at a Hedge Fund? I found I love doing analysis but I do it as a hobby and I’m mostly self taught. My background is manufacturing, engineering, and technology. I have a MBA but my business skills in Finance, Accounting, etc. are definitely my weakness. I’m really good at picking stocks because of my background even though my business skills are not as strong. Maybe I’m thinking about this wrong. Any help is appreciated.

This makes me nervous, am I crazy for being worried about this?
