Week 1

What initially attracted me to Clayton & McKervey was the firm’s international focus and how friendly and easy to talk to everyone was during the recruitment process! The people I met with genuinely seemed to enjoy working at C&M, and that was something I wanted to be a part of.

So far, C&M has met my expectations. Everyone has been so welcoming to the new interns, and have already offered to answer any questions I may have. I am already feeling like a member of the team.

What has been most surprising to me thus far is how much there is to learn. It has honestly been a bit overwhelming with the amount of information being taken in during training the first week. However, everyone has been more than willing to answer my many questions.

This summer, I’m really looking forward to learning as much as possible, and getting to know the rest of the team!

Month 1

My first month at C&M has been a really positive experience. It has been challenging at times, but I have already learned so much in such a short amount of time. I’ve had the chance to work on numerous projects and a variety of clients, and that has been very exciting!

The best part about working at C&M has definitely been the people. As an intern, there is so much for me to learn. My coworkers have helped tremendously by being more than willing to spend time helping me truly understand and learn about the work I’m doing. Everyone around me seems to genuinely want to help me grow and succeed.

Overall, my first month at C&M has been a great experience and I am excited to continue to learn and grow here!
