"I do a mixture of qualitative and quantitative thinking work, slide design and admin."
Intern, London
"I was placed on two projects, each for four weeks. On the first, I analysed recruitment data for the graduate scheme of a not-for-profit organisation. On the second, I assisted the team in detailing a new organisational design for the headquarters of a large company. I used PowerPoint and Excel extensively on both projects but also took part in lots of client and team meetings."
Intern, London
"My role was that of any other consultant on the team: to take responsibility for tasks and modules of work that needed to be done. As such, the work was very varied. Even within a single week I would switch from business oversight and strategic analysis to diving into spreadsheets to produce statistics that would define the direction of a work stream to producing slides and presenting analysis in a high-level client-friendly manner. The most common tools were definitely PowerPoint and Excel and the only day-to-day constant was that I always discussed my work with my project leader and other team members. Some weeks were definitely more varied than others though and, on occasion, I would be doing the same thing for a few days (interspersed with other smaller tasks)."

"My role has involved going to client meetings, making excel models, and creating slides in PowerPoint. I felt like all the work I did contributed to the team and the final product for the client."

Intern, London
"I was given work that was included in the overall outcome presented to the client. This included research and presentation of ideas in a PowerPoint format."
Intern, London
"Working in a team of four people, I was given responsibility for my own modules researching them thoroughly and then creating slides and presenting them to senior members of the team."
Intern, London
"I was given a high level of responsibility developing models, analysing data and presenting my conclusions. I even learned how to use a new piece of analytics software."

2014

"I have been given interesting case work and been given the same level of responsibility as a full-time joiner."
Intern, London
"My work involves everything from large pieces of analysis to client interviews and slide writing - no day is the same. I am given my own responsibilities and modules to complete within projects."
Intern, London
"My work includes quantitative analysis of survey data in Excel and SPSS, qualitative analysis, presentation, and report writing."
Intern, London
"I feel that I am treated like a new joining graduate would, and I am given the same workload and responsibilities. I am expected to have output within a relatively short period of time."
Intern, London
"I have been given the responsibility of the entire data analysis of my project. I have been doing a lot of modelling, owning the process, data and outcomes, spotting trends within the data and gaining insight."
