Deloitte Discovery Intern (Freshman) - Summer 2023 in McLean, Virginia
Join our select group of Deloitte Discovery interns, and you'll get an inside look at what it's really like to work for a professional services organization.
The Discovery Internship is open to all eligible freshman and sophomore students. Because of our desire to have a diverse slate of candidates, students who identify as a member of either traditionally underrepresented racial and ethnic minority groups within the professional services industry (Black or African-American, Hispanic or Latinx, American Indian or Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, or two or more races), are encouraged to apply.
Work you'll doThroughout the course of the internship, interns are assigned to one or more client projects where they will receive mentorship and support to help their success on the engagement. Beyond exposure to "real life" projects, the internship also delivers a variety of national and local learning and networking events. In addition, throughout the internship there are ongoing learning events such a lunch and learns, industry/service line spotlights, and regularly scheduled training offerings designed to help our interns develop technical and client service skills. The interns will understand first-hand what a career with Deloitte is like and have the opportunity to build a cross-functional professional network. Additional social activities are planned throughout the internship period to provide opportunity to network with Deloitte professionals.
Interns are expected to adapt to change, and demonstrate strong interpersonal and communication skills, creativity, and self-confidence. Interns must be team-oriented and able to work collaboratively. Interns are expected to demonstrate leadership qualities and potential.
How you'll growEach intern is assigned a mentorship team, including a counselor and onboarding advisor, to help offer guidance throughout the course of the internship. The counselor, typically a manager or senior manager, offers career guidance and feedback. The onboarding advisor is a peer level "buddy" to help answer questions and offer insight into how to make the most of the internship experience.
Additional mentors, both formal and informal, will be identified during the internship. These mentor relationships can carry over into the future and offer a great way to stay connected to Deloitte while back at school.
There will be formal goal-setting and evaluation process throughout the internship. Depending on performance and other factors, Discovery interns may have the opportunity to receive a subsequent internship opportunity at Deloitte. Freshman interns may have the opportunity to continue in the Discovery program through their sophomore summer. Sophomore interns have the opportunity to receive a client service internship offer at the conclusion of the Discovery Internship Experience.*
