hello!

I am doing an internship in an automotive company and I find it difficult to catch up with the various acronyms and terminology they use.

They have their own complicated processes, with tons of document templates that each has a different acronym and in most cases not a self explanatory one.

There is absolutely no documentation of all these acronyms and processes and the only way to catch up is to just ask all the time.

Is there any way to deal with that?

Also, are there any engineering, finance, consultancy, IB, legal sectors that have documented processes that you can read documentation or receive training and get an understanding? instead of having to ask all the time?

thanks!

I need replies from people who KNOW what they are talking about.

I have a closed relative who is a doctor and I know that in medicine everything is documented. If it is not, it is probably not valid. There are tons of acronyms in medicine, but all are documented.

Accounting is well documented. You will learn everything you need to know while doing your chartered accountant qualification. All the terms and concepts are learnt there. My uncle, who is a chartered accountant, told me that the chartered accountant qualification teaches you all the terms you need to know to be an accountant- but that you will continue to gain knowledge throughout your career when working with different businesses.

OK but I am not interesting much in Accountancy. Maybe IB, law, consuntancy or other sectors of engineering.

Definitely not IB or consulting- these are careers where you learn on the job as you gain experience. There's a lot of informal teaching involved as well as the usual formal teaching of financial concepts.

Law is quite well documented because you need to complete qualifications. Maybe ask around in the law section for more info

Investment banking (M&A) is quite well documented because all the banks have a graduate training scheme where you learn everything- no prior technical knowledge is really assumed for the internships. I know from experience.

Yes for law, most things are documented. What you would be lacking is the underlying legal knowledge and the experience to know how to put things into practice.
It's normal to go to a bookshop or library if you wnat to find the specific texts for your practice area. The LPC is targeted at procedureal aspects to prepare yourself for practice.

If you dont know what some legal terms are, then its normal to look them up in a legal dictionary or its likely they will be in the appendix of the book you are reading.
