Where are you interning?
Ernst & Young- Houston.

How did you go about getting your internship? What steps did you take?
In Spring 2012, I applied for and was selected to attended the EY Emerging Leaders Summit in Washington D.C. during the summer. The conference was a great experience and in the Fall I found an EY internship I was very interested in and applied on OCR.


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

The case studies I completed in MIS 309 were definitely valuable in preparing me for my case study interview. That practice in class helped me successfully analyze the case during my first round interview.

What advice would you give to others as they search for an internship?
If you are interested in pursuing a career with the Big 4, I highly recommend researching and applying for their leadership programs, which are typically open to sophomores and juniors. The programs teach you so much about the company culture and allow you to network with professionals at various levels of the firm.
