Deloitte Discovery Internship Program

In her prime's picture
Rank: Chimp | 4

Has anyone ever heard of, or have any experience with this program. I have an interview with them, but it seems back office. (i think HR)

I want to get into banking or management consulting eventually. But I have no other real work experience. I'm doubtful I can get other offers, even PWM. I am waiting to hear back form some other places, but not expecting anything.

So for a sophomore at a target, with a decent gpa and a non-traditional major, would this be a good choice? How would I stack up next year? Can I turn this internship, assuming HR, into a SA gig next summer?

Thanks

i think the discovery program puts you through many of their different divisions and gives you a look at what Deloitte has to offer--might even get some exposure to consulting as well i believe...from what i understand its a solid program, especially if youre still just a sophomore

From some of the Managing Directors, Directors, and VP's of some BB that I have talked to. Doing a Summer Leadership Program or Internship with the Big 4 is not going to look bad. Especially if you're a sophomore in college and you don't have anything else lined up. However, after you get it down on your resume I would try to shoot for something related to finance next Summer.

I think that we are all clinging to a great many piano tops...

Sounds like a guided (Mentored) Big 4 internship. Pay will probably be around $25.00 an hour, plus extra for overtime.

thanks sounds good. I was told by the recruiter that I would do some time in audit,tax,financial advisory,and consulting and then the following summer I would choose one to concentration. Anyone else?

I Got a dollar and a dream...

I will be participating in PwC's SDI intern program which is very similar to the Deloitte Discover program. I will be paid 17.50/hour + overtime over a 8-week period.
