Mortgage Operations Intern

May - August 2019 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

The company culture and environment. It was very laid back yet still professional, and they emphasize that everyone has a voice and their ideas and opinions matter.

What I wish was different

In my team specifically there was not very many intern like projects since it was a production role. I wish this would've been different because I felt more like a temp than an intern.

Advice

I would say that with a job like this one, where you sit at a desk it is very easy to get bored but if you set little goals for yourself it makes it a lot more entertaining because you have a challenge. I would also talk to many people/employers on the phone everyday and it is important to not take things personal. You never know what kind of day someone is having, so if they are rude to you on the phone just be extra nice because maybe they are having a bad day.

Talent Development Intern

June - August 2019 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I liked the autonomy of my internship. I had the opportunity to develop my own ideas into something the company and my team could use in the future.

Marketing Operations Intern

May - August 2019 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

QL puts on an AMAZING summer intern experience. Everyone loves the interns and treats them like they're team members and that they matter, not just interns. I had the opportunity to live in the city on Wayne's campus through QL and it was so much fun working and living in the city. It is a wonderful opportunity and opened huge doors for me!

What I wish was different

I wish that my team leader had been a little better at guiding me since most of the time I was making up the things I was working on myself. It was a real taste of the business world though!

Advice

Take on EVERY opportunity! Do not pass up anything. Come up with your own ideas and don't wait around to be told what to do. Talk to and network with as many people as possible. Ask TONS of questions and don't worry if people think your question is dumb. This is YOUR future we're talking about, so make the most of it!
