Name: Jenn Tomasetti
The summer after her junior year, Jenn Tomasetti took on an internship with the accounting firm PwC. Her daily responsibilities included updating state and federal tax forms and eventually filling out her own tax forms from start to finish. She was also able to shadow a client and was involved in a Project Management presentation. The most important thing she learned at PwC was to become a “sponge” – someone who soaks up knowledge and writes it all down.
“This comes in handy when you can recall and show what you learned,” said Jenn.
Her favorite memory with her time at PwC was the Launch experience at the end of the internship. PwC extended Jenn a job offer which she gladly accepted. After she completes her Graduate Degree, she will get to continue her work with them. After offering her a job, PwC took all of their interns to Disney for a 3-day experience in the parks. Jenn says it was one of the best memories she has, and that not every employer will send you to Disney to celebrate your career milestones.
The Amica Career Center helped Jenn by letting her use their resources to interview for the intern position a semester early since she was abroad during the interview process. In this way, Amica made sure Jenn wouldn’t miss out on any opportunities because she was abroad. Jenn’s best career and internship advice is that it’s never too early to search for jobs and internships. Jenn has had an internship every summer of her college career and the relationships she has established there have helped her when she didn’t know the next step to take.
