Give us a brief summary of your experience?

My intern experience spanned over 10 weeks. Over that time, I had the opportunity to be a part of the Liquidity and Investment Advisory team. I worked with clients to obtain funding that can then be used for lending side of the bank. I was able to work on multiple projects throughout the summer, ranging from client proposals to automating the monthly reporting data using Microsoft PowerBI.

How did this experience impact you academically?

I believe that this experience has taught me how to be more focused and resilient. Both of these skills can be applied to academics as well as the business world. Having these skills with better my time management, handling tough assignments, and a lot of other difficult aspects of college.

"These experiences have helped me come to realize that working in banking is what I want to do after graduation."

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This internship has greatly impacted my career goals. Before coming into the bank, I was unsure of exactly where I wanted to work. Throughout the internship, I was able to learn about other parts of the bank through networking. These experiences have helped me come to realize that working in banking is what I want to do after graduation.

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

The Chapel Executive Internship program gave me the opportunity to work and live in New York City. Without this program, it would have been difficult finding suitable housing in the area. Living in the city has allowed me to not only be more ready for my busy day ahead but also enjoy the area after work.
