Where are you interning?
Deloitte Tax in Houston.

How did you go about getting your internship? What steps did you take?
I read about a Deloitte program (Deloitte NextGen Leaders Conference) in an
email from Ms. Greta Fenley, and decided to apply because it was for first-year
students and sounded like a great opportunity. A Deloitte professional who I had
met at a previous networking event was at the conference, and we reconnected.
She then asked me to interview in the Houston Tax office once I got back from
the conference.

What classes do you think were the most valuable in getting your internship?

BA 101H and BA324H.

What advice would you give to others as they search for an internship?
Utilize your connections. The professionals I met at the Deloitte NextGen
Conference and some family friends were great resources and very willing to help

Can you describe how your interview went?
Very conversational and informative. They encouraged me to ask questions and get a feel of their culture while also asking about me to see if I would be a good
fit with their employees.

What were the hardest questions they asked in your interview?
Why Deloitte? Be prepared to talk about the details of the company and why
exactly you want to work for them and why you want them to hire you.
