Internal Audit Intern
June 2019 - August 2019
“E*TRADE does a exceptional job of integrating its interns into their teams by providing real work that adds real value. I never felt like my team was disrespectful of my time, and I never completed any cliché "intern work". Every assignment that I had and every meeting I attended was curated to add value to me, as a professional, and to the firm.
Beyond educating their interns thoroughly in their departments, E*TRADE demonstrated a strong commitment to exposing their interns to all departments in the office. We had weekly "lunch and learns", where interns could join in on a casual presentation with a different business unit each week. They would outline their department's responsibilities, which departments they worked closely with, and what their day-to-day work looked like. On a greater scale, interns completed a capstone project, in which we worked with a randomly assigned team of interns (from multiple departments and locations). E*TRADE used this project to have us tackle a real world problem the company faced, which pushed us to work in a new area.
Every single part of my internship was clearly designed to give me the most value possible, which was absolutely amazing!
