This past winter, I was lucky enough to do an internship in Ernst & Young's tax group in the Salt Lake City office. Most students do an accounting internship during the summer, but because Salt Lake is such a small group, they only hire interns for the winter tax busy season (January to April). I loved the people I worked with and had a great experience. At the end of the internship, I received an offer to join the firm full-time after I graduate - we are so grateful that I already have a job lined up more than a year before I graduate, especially in this economy.
Every summer, E&Y holds a conference in Orlando, Florida for all the interns. Even though I wasn't currently an intern at the time of the conference, I was invited to attend. So I packed my bags, kissed the hubby goodbye, and off to Florida I went!
It was nice to get away from school for a few days, but it was sad to leave Michael behind. We decided it would be worth it for me to go because E&Y put me back on the payroll for the week. :)
Let me tell you...Florida in August is HOT HOT HOT and sooo HUMID!! Literally, I would get all ready in the morning and by the time I made it to the conference center (about a five minute walk) I would feel like I needed to shower again - I would be sweaty and my hair would be hopelessly flat.
