Bank of America

Financial Advisor Intern

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I learned a lot, the advisors I worked under kept me in the loop about prospects I had found myself. This meant that I got to see and be apart of the process when some of my prospects became clients. I learned a lot about financial planning and the process that Merrill Lynch goes through to acquire and keep clients. I also learned a lot about researching potential prospects and creating lists to acquire them.

What I wish was different

Cold-Calling was a major part of prospecting and I wish I had more experience face to face with clients.

Advice

A Merrill Lynch internship opens a lot of doors for those looking to get into finance. The advisors are very kind and always wiling to help and give career advice. It is a great learning experience and should you decide that Financial Advising is not the job for you there are numerous other opportunities within the company. This internship will connect you with a lot of professionals in the industry and should you choose to pursue another profession, the advisors have great connections and are very willing to write you a letter of recommendation or refer you to a professional in your area of interest.

Really explain to your manager what you are interested in!

Analyst Intern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I absolutely loved the company and the team that I got to work with! Everyone was very welcoming and had similar goals as me. Reaching out to people in other departments was also very easy and I got the chance to learn a lot this summer and grow as an individual. I learned about different trading processes and the bank in general.

What I wish was different

I did wish I had more work but overall I was able to use my time efficiently.

Advice

Meet and network with as many people as possible because if you get a return offer you are already ahead of the people that did not do the internship if you accept the position.

Advisor Development Summer Analyst

June - August 2019 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

I liked the freedom you had to explore the company. I was able to connect with people from various sectors of the firm for informational interviews. In this process, I found that the BoA community is very supportive of their new analyst and the people at the firm truly do care about your success whether or not it is with BoA.

What I wish was different

I wish the program had clearer goals for the interns. The job description did not match the internship day to day activities. Regardless, there are many opportunities to grow during the internship. You have to take the initiative if you want to see this growth. I still would have liked to learn more hard skills throughout the experience.

Advice

My biggest piece of advice would be to take initiative and stay positive throughout the experience.

intern

June - August 2019 • Rochester, MN

What I liked

The team I worked with made all of the difference for me. Being a marketing major in a finance internship my team was able to redirect what they could to make my time there more meaningful.

What I wish was different

When applying I didn't know what the internship entailed, so I didn't know how finance heavy it would be. I wish when applying the recruiter was more open about how the program worked.

Advice

Even if your internship isn't exactly in the field you wanted take it with open arms. I learned so much more than I could ever imagine. From how to network, to how to conduct meetings, to how an office truly works it's amazing the amount of things you will learn without even realizing it. Be open, take the chance, and say yes to new opportunities.
