Internship Hunting

Today I have decided to put a good bit of effort into lining up an internship for the summer. One of the hardest parts sometimes is deciding exactly where you want to go. I have come to the conclusion that I would like to go in one of three directions: strategy consulting, banking industry, or the automotive industry.

Application processes for me tend to take a good bit of time. I like to thoroughly prepare and organize my information and documents before I decide to send them off. Right now I am working on finding all the positions that I would like to apply for. So far I have found some interesting opportunities at BMW, A.T. Kearney, Bain, and Alphabet. All offer good opportunities with a lot of growth and development potential.

When I begin my career I would ideally like to get myself into a position where I have good bit of flexibility, especially in my area of operation. I enjoy getting around and seeing and experiencing new things; right now an unsettling idea for me is the notion of remaining static in one place. Formany people stability is the chance to remain stationary for the majority of their life, often a comforting thought for most people. I believe that I am a person who gains stability from the opportunity of change. I guess this puts me right on target with the requirements of a global business environment today.

These are the types of things that I try to consider when I am looking for positions to apply for. Proper deliberation and self-evaluation is an essential aspect of the process. I am confident that I will find a good opportunity, and I am interested to see which direction I do decide to go with.  I’ll keep you updated regarding the outcome.
