The department talks were one of the most interesting part of my summer at PSB BOISJOLI. Having the opportunity to hear from partners and senior managers about their career journeys that led them to where they are now was a valuable experience. It was very encouraging to know that even a partner was once in my shoes as an intern and was able to grow to where they are now.
I asked questions about the different types of work done in these departments and understood what a typical day is like while working in them. The department talks allowed me to envision what kind of work I may be doing in the coming years and opened my eyes to the many opportunities at PSBB. All partners and managers are extremely approachable and emphasized that joining a new department that aligns with an employee's goals is always possible. I felt valued as an employee that partners would take time out of their busy day to truly make the interns feel like they are an important part of the team.
