S&P Global

Liberal Arts Major: International Politics
Hometown: Hatboro, PA
Experience Time: Summer 2022

Give us a brief summary of your experience?

I have been given the opportunity to intern at S&P Global in New York where I will be spending most of my time with the sales team for PVR (pricing, valuation, and reference data) products. I have already been involved with client outreach, product training, cold calling, and many conversations with people who have been in the business for many years. Next week I have a call with someone who runs the commodities at sea campaign which is a product that leverages satellites to track ship movements in real-time to study commodity flows and supply chains.

How did this experience impact you academically?

This internship brought into motion many of the themes and lessons from my classes in the College of the Liberal Arts and has given me an additional drive to take all that I can from classes. I was fortunate to be positioned in S&P, a massive global enterprise with hands in many parts of the world. One day I would find myself talking with the head of sustainable finance, and the next I would be talking with the head of economic and country risk data. Being able to see how the knowledge from my classes eventually trickles down into business reaffirms the value proposition of liberal arts and makes me excited for my next year of classes.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

I cannot express enough gratitude for the opportunity to intern at S&P Global as it has exposed me to careers and fields that I did not know previously existed. Far and away the best experience of my internship was the ability to meet interesting and driven people who have lived storied lives. Now I have connections that I foresee withstanding the test of time. My advice to anyone in an internship is to meet as many people as possible. This practice has an extraordinary return on time with rewards in the form of career foresight, gaining allies, and simply having conversations with fascinating people.
