Summer Profiles

ECs share their perspectives on internships, locations and industries With Hell Week still fresh on your mind and interview season now in full swing, we at The Harbus know you've got many big decisions ahead of you and wish to provide some firsthand insight from those who came before you. Whether you're hoping to try your hand at consulting or want to help alleviate extreme poverty in post-conflict African nations, it never hurts to heed the advice of those who've already been there and done that. The Harbus asked ECs from a wide variety of industries to reflect upon their job selection processes and overall internship experiences in an attempt to shed some much-needed light on the otherwise stressful months ahead. Here's what they had to say…

J. P. Morgan I chose an internship with J.P. Morgan. Having worked there before as a Research Analyst, I knew that J.P. Morgan truly does favor teams over superstars and thus provides an environment where I can learn and develop much faster.  The firm also enjoys an enviable position in the market www.replicaforbest.co.uk, which for me translates into more opportunities to participate in marquee transactions.  Finally, the bank both facilities and encourages mobility across a breadth of geographic and product verticals, so I will never run out of interesting things to do. I chose to work in the New York office of J. P. Morgan. New York and London used to be the best places to build a successful career and work on the highest-profile deals.  Now the level of sophistication of clients around the globe is much higher and you can build a successful career in Asia or Latin America just as easily.  However, New York still offers the largest breadth of clients and deals and thus makes the most sense given my career plans. I was staffed on multiple live deals just minutes after I finished training. Knowing that my deal teams relied fully on me was scary at first, but the firm provides mentors and other resources to help you step up to the challenge.  The atmosphere among interns was surprisingly collegial replica breitling Aeromarine .  Unlike some competitors, J.P. Morgan structures its summer program to incentivize you to collaborate rather than compete with your fellow interns.  As a result, you're never afraid to offer or ask for help from others and you learn much faster.

Fran-Fredane Fraser (OE)Deloitte I spent my summer with Deloitte Consulting as a Summer Associate. I was based in New York but my project assignment was in Lafayette Louisiana. I was on a restructuring project which gave me access to executives at the company, who listened to my recommendations. I chose Deloitte because I connected well with the consultants I met there. Even during the interview process I was having genuine fun, and that was an indication that working there wouldn't be laborious but fun and engaging. It was also plus that they had a group dedicated to turnarounds/restructuring which is the type of consulting I want to do. Networking was the major portion of my recruiting. I set up as many calls and chats as I could afford to in my busy schedule. Even though the companies sent their representatives to campus, I used the alumni database as well to introduce myself to other HBS alums to get my name on the lips of people at the firm. With so many talented people vying for the same jobs, subjective assessments will be used to narrow down the field. You can use this knowledge to your advantage and get yourself noticed (and I don't mean monopolizing the company representative's time at the network events or stalking folks). Set up one-on-one calls with HBS alums, go to the coffee chats and talk to ECs and RCs who worked for the firm you are recruiting for, this way when your resume comes up for review, several people on that call will be able to talk about you from personal interactions. And don't forget to prepare, this is not a case discussion; this is for real and there is a right answer! If I were to do it again, I would have started networking earlier, if that was at all possible . I would have also found the secret to cracking consulting cases replica breitling bentley 6.75, I would have been less stressed throughout the process.

Stephen Goldstein (OA)Morgan Stanley Career Field prior to HBS: Consulting Position in company: Business Analyst I chose Morgan Stanley because I wanted to be part of a global organization that would allow me to pursue my long term aspiration of moving to Brazil. Morgan Stanley, at the outset, said that I would be able to make the move if it made sense for the Firm and for me. I worked from the New York office since it is where the best training and networking occur. I had a great overall experience and decided to return to Morgan Stanley full-time after HBS to join their Sao Paulo office. Hours were long but manageable, but the culture was great and very supportive.
