Give us a brief summary of your experience?

I served as a commercial and corporate banking intern at PNC during the summer of 2022. Throughout the internship program, I participated in shadowing, mentoring, and projects that furthered my understanding of underwriting and sales. Some of my responsibilities include going to networking events and client calls, assisting in underwriting bank deals, and performing company research and financial analysis. Overall, I was able to build long-term connections while improving myself not only on the technical side but also holistically.

This experience allowed me to see how academic theories and classroom learning are applied in real-life scenarios. It makes the classes that I am taking more meaningful. With that, I am able to choose more lessons that are fitting to my interest and learn more in my college career.
