Don't complain. You are just an intern. It doesn't get any better or interesting. Switch careers if you think training is boring! Overworking long hours during busy season without being paid overtime (which you are now) won't be fun!

I’m graduating with a masters in finance this fall. I just accepted an offer with Unilever as graduate finance intern. The problem is, i feel that I may be making a career mistake by entering the industry without having banking/consulting experience first. I’m just not sure if having that background vs. this career path with get me to a higher level in the long term. The FT offer will be an AFM. Prior to grad school, I worked 1 year in sales, 2 years in WM, and have a bachelors in economics. TY

So tired of interns who speak like partners and act like they are on top of the world. On our status call today, our intern literally asked our staff “why did it take you a day to finish this cuz I can do it within an hour” (which turned out to be a false statement), and when our senior said she’s gonna create a task for EP sign-offs, our intern asked if she could do the same for him so that it’s easier for him to navigate through the work papers. OMG

Articling student in Canada (8 month internship with potential hireback), currently doing transactional work. I’m WFH and having a hard time building relationships with partners. I’m friendly/chat with associates and am on great terms with one partner who gives me work often, but not much else. The firm “encourages” reaching out to partners to chat, though I’ve tried and been essentially ignored. Partners rarely have enough time to give me feedback, so I feel they don’t have time to chat.

I have a supervisor who nitpicks things the way you would for an intern or a junior and I’m trying to navigate.

For example, she will ask me to attend a meeting in her stead or write an email for her and she will completely edit my notes or my email not spelling errors or anything but completely reformatting and there’s no real pattern to the way she does it so I’m not learning.
