The first meeting with the director is very important as he will ask you what you intend to gain from the internship. He then decides the right department for you. I told him that I wanted to be involved in a macroeconomics policy study, hence he got me involved with building the economic model for GDP forecasting.What did you learn?
It was only fun in the first two weeks as I learned new things. After that, it became routine. I learned quite a few important things. One of them is how to choose the variables to forecast GDP and the tools needed.Was your supervisor supportive?
-What could be improved? What could you have done better?
-Advice for future interns?
I would advise any economics student that wishes to learn the practical side of the subject to give it a try.
