Walgreen Co.

Corporate Finance Intern

June - August 2020 • Deerfield, IL

What I liked

Despite challenges presented by the pandemic, Walgreens was able to successfully adapt to a virtual environment. I felt that this summer's intern class was given the same opportunities as any prior year. Our internship program leaders worked extremely hard to ensure we had an incredible experience. Additionally, other team members were very receptive to our questions and willing to help on a daily basis. I especially enjoyed working on a team with five of my fellow interns for the case competition. The project enabled us to bond as friends and produce an exceptional final presentation.

What I wish was different

Rather than a virtual internship, I would have preferred to work in the corporate HQ. However, COVID had other plans.


Start building your network immediately. Internships fly by and you may end your summer wishing you had talked to more people. Do not be afraid to reach out to senior colleagues for coffee chats and career advice. Chances are they were once in your shoes and are happy to return the favor.
