The First Interns of the Decade Have Officially Been Released Into the Wild

As anyone with a calendar is more than aware, it’s a new year, meaning winter internships are well underway in this little corner of the financial world. Trust that we’ll be monitoring the usual channels closer than ever on the hunt for major screw-ups, embarrassing photo ops, or, say, a highly condensed schedule of errands that needs to be shared with the class. As always, you’re also welcome to submit anonymous tips via email, Twitter, text, or carrier pigeon for you oldies out there.

Alright. So at this point in the game, everyone’s on their best behavior, just barely wiping off their Kool-Aid mustaches in training and social events. The real fun hasn’t even started yet, unless you count actual fun as “real fun.”

Meanwhile over at KPMG, their interns are breaking in the KPMG Lakehouse, the $450 million, 780,000-square-foot compound which my esteemed colleague Bramwell has written about almost as much as KPMG’s own press people.

Look, kids, if you’re reading this I have one piece of advice for you: enjoy that sweet, sweet overtime while you can. You’ll never see it again, unless of course you intern again. But definitely after that, it’s gone forever.

Oh, and proofread every single communication before you send it. Even if you’re just making sure you spelled “extra Ranch” correctly in the Grubhub order comment box. See ya on the other side!
