What was the best part of your experience?

The most significant highlights of my internship were the opportunities and hands on experience that I received and the ability to see how much Fidelity values its internship program. Throughout the summer, I wrote assessments, presented my analysis to other business units and built out a link analysis tool to assist the Global Intelligence and Analysis team with future research. Additionally, I had the opportunity to network with employees across the entire firm and learn about other business units within Fidelity.

How did this experience impact you academically?

During the internship, I had the opportunity to research political events, activist groups and locations around the world via open source searches. Additionally, I analyzed the potential impact to Fidelity Investments and created assessments for corporate security executives. My internship influenced my undergraduate education by furthering my desire to learn about the political events of countries throughout the world and continue my studies of Eastern European politics as it is pertinent to the career path of an intelligence analyst.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

After the conclusion of my internship, I hope to work for Fidelity Investments full-time in the Fidelity Enterprise and Risk Management division. I want to continue my work as an intelligence analyst as the research and analysis of political events, protest activity and individual threats excites me. My summer with Fidelity Investments made me fall in love with the company and wholeheartedly want to pursue a full time position with the firm or in the security field in the public or private sector.

How has the Paterno Fellows Program had an impact on this experience?

The Paterno Fellows program has amazed me with the opportunities available to scholars. As Paterno Fellows, we are pushed to take challenging courses and complete additional work to meet our requirements. However, these requirements prepared me to take on a role in Global Intelligence Analysis with Fidelity Investments. Because of the rigor of the Paterno Fellows program, I knew current political issues around the world and had learned how to research, analyze and write to a certain standard. The Paterno Fellows program definitely prepared me for this experience with Fidelity Investments.
