Interning While Black with My Little Cousin

S3:Ep 38

In this episode, I have the opportunity to sit down with my little cousin (he’s 20 now but he will always be my favorite 9-year-old with a bow tie) and talk with him about his summer internship experience with a global investment firm.  It is the classic okie-doke set up for failure.  Let this be a lesson to you.  You can interview well, gain the opportunity, get set up to fail… only to be told that you aren’t good enough.  Don’t believe the hype.
