The panelists first shared their general experience about their internships and what they did. Their internship activities ranged from doing stock pitches, researches, auditing reports to fund mapping and transaction banking. Then they talked about the most rewarding part of their internship, which included being acknowledged as a worker by senior members, client interactions as well as auditing reports.Their biggest challenges in internship were getting accustomed to the work environment, making recommendations to senior members, learning about political policies and coming out of the comfort zone.

Moving on to application process for their respective internships, each one of them had something different to offer. Erin talked about Boston Career firm while Ivy and Judy emphasized the importance of Bi-Co resources such as Lantern Lake and externships.

“You don’t need how to calculate premium price of option, what you need to know is what is happening in the market, and have a genuine love for finance.” As quoted by Erin this was the major theme of the advice from all panelists. They encouraged us to utilize our analytic background, provided by Liberal Arts environment and start learning few financial terms to show your interest.

After a brief Q/A session, the Annual Summer Internship Panel ended at 10 pm.

We would like to thank all our panelists for taking out time from their busy schedules to come and talk to interested students.  Good luck for your future endeavors!
