Strategy and Analytics Intern

April - September 2019 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I gained very valuable experience working in an area that was directly related to my major and minor (Finance and Business Analytics). I also enjoyed working downtown Detroit where there are always things to do. The experience and overall environment at Quicken was amazing and led me to accepting a full time position that I work in currently.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have spent more time during my internship shadowing the different areas of business and learning more about the whole company rather than being so focused on my particular area. With a company as large as Quicken there are so many different areas to explore and it is important to branch out and see what business area might suit you best.

Advice

Definitely shadow as many different positions as possible and expand your network of contacts you can reach out to when you are eventually looking for a full time position. Also be sure to ask a lot of questions and take notes!

Mortgage Operations Intern

May 2018 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I liked the experience gained at Quicken Loans. At the company, they treat interns just as they would team members, being involved with many high level projects and meetings. The internship is truly what you make of it, and you are allowed to utilize the tools offered to team members in any way that you would like to put your own ideas into action. Quicken Loans loves fresh eyes and is open to any sort of feedback that interns have to offer about the company or their processes.

What I wish was different

I do wish that interns were paid slightly higher and offered a small bank of PTO for those interns that are with the company for more than one or two intern seasons.

Advice

Interact. Make your mark wherever you can and do not be afraid to network and get your name out there by assisting with any tasks asked of you by your leader. This will get you noticed and increase your chances to gain a full time job with the company.
