My role was to complete a fictional valuation case study while working in a team. I also had individual work to complete and had mandatory sessions regarding EY, such as learning about EY Nextwave, EY Foundation, etc. I was assigned two mentors and a buddy who guided me throughout the summer internship. The internship was virtual, and therefore was highly structured in a way to help you get a good foundation for a graduate role.
I have learned how to use Valuation multiples in valuing a company or a asset. I also learned key skills in improving my teamwork, confidence and etiquette. I have also learned how to network effectively, and I was able to improve my presentation skills by presenting to a panel of partners.
I was given a large amount of responsibility to manage my own deadlines and to be able to produce a very high quality of work at the same time. I was given a lot of exposure to the company through live sessions which were mandatory to attend. Therefore, I had to plan my timetable accordingly in order to get the work done.
Support & Guidance
I received a lot of support and guidance from my excellent mentors who coached me along the way. They took out time out of their busy schedules to set up one to one calls in which we will talk about my progress and how to improve, as well as answering any questions I had regarding the case study.
The company culture was great, everyone in my team was highly collborative, there was a lot of talks about diversity and inclusion, and we had Dr Alex come in to give us a talk about mental health. EY warm atmosphere is brilliant and rare to find in the industry. There was always someone to talk to, even if it is just for a 30 minute chat.
I enjoyed my internship significantly. I can say with confidence that the skills I have learned and the relationships that I have built during my internship will help develop my future career. I enjoyed the EY internship so much that I am eagerly waiting to hear if I will be able to come back next year for a graduate role!
My advice to other people applying to EY would be to really hone down on why they want to work for EY. I personally feel the diverse and amazing culture at EY allows people to be themselves and therefore, people who are applying shouldn't worry about expressing their viewpoints. Make sure you do a lot of research on the sub service line you wish to join!
