Give us a brief summary of your experience?

This summer, I interned at Agile Rainmakers, a high impact business development consulting and advisory firm based in Chicago’s gold coast. Over the course of two months, I worked alongside five other interns on various projects for the eight clients we had. There was value in the diversity of industries we were able to work with as well as in the opportunity to work very closely with the CEOs of each company with minimal overhead from our boss. This allowed us to see and understand the value that our work was adding to each client and their company.

How did this experience impact you academically?

It was very empowering to be able to hit the ground running in the way that we did through our interactions with each client as we led meetings and exercised effective communication as well as time management. This internship has allowed me to discover what I look for in terms work life balance, which will be useful in the remainder of my undergraduate education as well.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

In terms of future plans, I was not expecting to like consulting as much as I did, and I now see this as a possible career path. That being said, I’m extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to surround myself with such intelligent people as well as the clarity this experience has given me around my professional endeavors.

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

I received enrichment funds through the College of the Liberal arts, which helped relieve the financial burdens of this experience and allowed me to focus on my work.
