Interning While Black with My Little Cousin

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.


  • No matter what- Take What You Can Learn and Move On To Your Next Opportunity
  • There Are Some Situation That You Can’t Fix- No Matter How Good You Are
  • Sometimes Companies Hire You So They Can Show That They Hire Minorities, But They Have No Intentions of Setting You Up For Success
  • Do Your Best- That’s all you can do!
  • If you find yourself in this situation: NONE OF THIS IS YOUR FAULT
