Sneak Peek Into a Day in the Life for This New York Intern

Posted by ZS on Sep 26, 2019 2:07:13 PM

ZS is a firm known for its great people, supportive culture and, of course, amazing food and snacks. But have you ever wondered how a typical day in the life of a ZS intern unfolds? You’re in luck, because I’m here to bring you the inside scoop. 

8:30 a.m. – I leave my apartment and walk to ZS’s New York office. As I take in the scenery of Madison Square Park, I use this moment of calmness to mentally prepare for the day.

9 a.m. – After arriving in the office and brewing myself a cup of tea, I check-in with the associate I’m working with on one of my projects. We outline the problem statement and identify pain points where we can introduce solutions to the client. I then synthesize notes from stakeholder meetings and update our deliverable deck with the new insights collected.

12 p.m. – My mentor and I grab lunch at a nearby restaurant to catch up. She’s currently an associate consultant and even interned here before accepting a full-time position. She’s been a great resource and support system during my internship, offering her perspectives on ZS’s culture and post-grad life.

Toronto Intern Finds Support and Her Personal Brand at ZS

Posted by ZS on Sep 18, 2019 3:33:08 PM

During my summer internship in ZS’s Toronto office, I was surprised how ZSers are willing to put aside their own work to help someone else learn. I was excited to see a project through from beginning to end to get a firsthand look at the life of a consultant. My project was challenging and surrounded me with thought-provoking discussions and real-time learnings. As a novice in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, my team was always willing to sit down with me to discuss my questions – and if they didn’t have the answer, they always knew someone who would. Even as an intern, my inputs were valued by my team, which gave me a true sense of ownership in the project and deliverables.

Shanghai Interns Find Time for Work and Play

Posted by ZS on Sep 12, 2019 4:44:35 PM

What I cherish most from my summer internship experience at ZS is the people. My first day jitters melted away upon the warm welcome we received from the Shanghai ZSers. The welcoming feeling only continued throughout the summer, as we were given opportunities to get to know our colleagues through fun team-building events, such as bouncing around at a trampoline park and putting our problem-solving skills to the test during an escape room. I was pleasantly surprised by the personal support and attention I received from my mentor, professional development coach and the ZSers on my project. When I applied for my internship, the interviewer told me that ZS is a place where you can make friends – and after a rewarding summer, I have certainly found that to be true.
