The counselor, typically a manager or senior manager, offers career guidance and feedback. The onboarding advisor is a peer level “buddy” to help answer questions and offer insight into how to make the most of the internship experience.
Additional mentors, both formal and informal, will be identified during the internship. These mentor relationships can carry over into the future and offer a great way to stay connected to Deloitte while back at school.
There will be formal goal-setting and evaluation process throughout the internship.
