At our second meeting, OIG featured a panel consisting of 4 Bryn Mawr students who took the time to share with us their experiences from over summer, each of them having had some sort of finance internship. The panelists discussed where they worked, what is what like working there, what their daily activities entailed, etc. In addition, each panelist offered insight into the world of finance and what it takes to get into such a demanding industry. The students shared their perspectives on the differences between working at a small firm versus a large firm, working as a women in a predominantly male driven industry, and what it’s like working in such an industry coming from a small liberal arts environment.
The panelists certainly had a lot to say and a lot of advice to offer! On behalf of OIG, we graciously thank the panelists who shared their experiences! Below is information on the panelists, where they interned, as well as contact info in case you have any questions you’d like to ask them! In addition, be sure to contact/visit CDO for internships and job opportunities throughout the year!
