ZS is never a snooze, according to a Boston intern

Posted by ZS on Jun 30, 2017 2:00:00 PM

Interning in ZS’s Boston office for two weeks has taught me that work doesn’t have to be boring.

Right off the bat, I’ve found that the work I’ve been assigned has been quite relevant and useful to the two projects I was staffed on. Experienced ZSers have been helpful guides and although it’s only been a couple weeks, I feel like I’m already developing expertise in hemophilia and spinal muscular atrophy thanks to the knowledge they shared when I joined my project teams.

East Coast intern says his first two weeks at ZS are a home run

Posted by ZS on Jun 16, 2017 4:30:00 PM

The first two weeks at ZS as an intern have been a whirlwind!

During the first week, the East Coast interns went through training, which proved to be very beneficial for our projects. We got started covering the foundations—human resources, IT and Excel—but we quickly dove into the more challenging aspects of ZS.

We broke into teams and took part in an intensive practice case, which helped us get a firm grasp on the work the firm does. We, of course, had some jitters about starting our first projects, and this case training really put us at ease by eliminating some of the “unknowns”.
