Hello guys, so after the COVID19 crisis finds an end I am going to apply for some major consulting firms. To get an advance in how to make the best out of my time there, what are the three or more things you would say are necessary to keep in mind?
Love to have some chats, thanks for answers, appreciate your time!

Good day, Benjamin,

summed up those aren't 3 but definitely all relevant! 

  1. Work your ass off.
  2. Learn from all your colleagues. Be a sponge for knowledge.
  3. Don't think of 9 to 5.
  4. Forget about earning money.
  5. Be helpful.
  6. Stay away from negative colleagues.
  7. Work towards the company missing you when you are gone.

If I could go back as a brand-new intern, I would take the time to track my impact. Identify expected key metrics from your contributions as an intern and track those numbers regularly. For example, identify the percentage increase of how you drove social media engagement, business revenue or volunteer recruitment from day one. These statistics add immeasurable value to your portfolio for future career opportunities.

If you're not sure exactly how your work contributed to the bottom line, then ask. It's always a good idea to find out how your specific work fits into the bigger picture of your organization's goals!
