My name is Aaron Croad and I will be a senior at Albion in the Fall of 2011. I have been a part of the Gerstacker Institute since I started at Albion. Gerstacker has provided me with many opportunities – from the unique business classes, to tutoring within the Institute, from a part-time internship with Humanergy in the Fall of 2010, to resume and cover letter advice, as well as unquantifiable support and networking.
This summer I have also been making the best of another Gerstacker opportunity. Last fall, through Gerstacker, I learned of an internship opening at Ernst & Young. After successfully making through the interview process, I was selected along with 4 other Gerstacker students to intern there this summer. Up to this point, I could not be happier with where I am and what I am doing. EY sent me to Chicago for four days for orientation and training, and since I have been working in Detroit, Auburn Hills, Rochester HIlls, and Northville. Additionally, I will be heading to Orlando for an internship end leadership conference.
At EY I have been working in the Advisory practice for Enterprise Intelligence. We work on a lot of process improvement projects utilizing our business knowledge and our mathematical skills. Not only am I getting to work on great projects, I am also meeting some very intelligent people and I am learning what it is like to work for a big time company.
In conclusion, my internship to this point has gone great and I can only hope for more great things to come!
