Community and Client Impact Coincide for This San Francisco Intern

Posted by ZS on Aug 29, 2019 12:10:38 PM

Before joining, after attending campus info sessions, coffee chats and interviews, I could sense what draws people to ZS. It’s a community of passionate people, inspired to make a broader impact on the world and I was eager to experience that culture firsthand. Only after fully immersing myself in my internship did I truly discover the synergetic environment that makes ZS special.

Food Fosters Friendship at ZS

Posted by ZS on Sep 4, 2018 4:40:04 PM

I’ve made a lot of good memories during my summer at ZS in the San Francisco office.

Aside from my work, I could share crazy stories about bubble soccer, surfing in Santa Cruz or a massive late-night poker tournament,  but I want to illustrate my experience through something a little more universal: food.

Intern Races into Life at ZS

Posted by ZS on Jun 15, 2018 7:30:00 AM

Hands gripping the wheel, eyes locked forward in anxious concentration, feet hovering over the pedals—we wait for the signal. The green flag suddenly dances above us, and we’re off! We screech around corners, zoom down straightaways, and careen against each other. Our ZS internship has only just begun, and we’ve already forgotten what the word ‘brake’ means—at least when it comes to go-kart racing! (Credit to Los Angeles intern Matt for that zinger.)

Like our experience on the go-kart track, the summer interns have accelerated through training and jumped into projects with ease and agility. Our first week began with the fundamentals, such as completing HR paperwork and getting a refresher on Excel and PowerPoint. Next, we were thrown into a case simulation, which required us not only to use the analytical tools and presentation skills we’d been practicing, but to also acquire a taste for how ZSers determine the best way to help clients and provide actionable solutions.
