Best division to choose during finance internship?
I am a penultimate year finance intern starting this summer at a big pharma Pfizer/J&J/GSK and was wondering which division to choose during my one year at the company.
I want to pursue Banking Analyst programs or theprogram the company offers to its interns ( > 20% conversion rate). Or maybe Consultancy.
I also value what rotation is going to teach me the most, be interesting but most importantly help me achieve what I want to pursue.
The divisions are as follows:
- Tax Planning
- Internal Audit
My initial thoughts: While Corp Finance would to me be the most interesting one, I almost feel like it would be too senior for an intern make any real inputs. I feel like FP&A will help me building my understanding of the, accounting theory and presentation skills and at a level where I could feel more involved.
I also believe it would be better orientate me for the FLDP than Treasury or CF, as the FLDP rotations are:
- Financial reporting
- Internal auditing
- Research and development finance
- Sales and marketing finance
Thanks for your time, any comments are appreciated.
