June - August 2020 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

The work culture.

What I wish was different

Advisor Development

June - August 2021 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

It was a very in-depth overview of what the career of a Financial Advisor entails and the path it takes to get there, I found it to be a great learning experience and very realistic

What I wish was different

It was virtual so obviously an in-office experience would have been better but it was not as hand-on as I would have liked, I wish there were more one-on-one sessions and ability to see how the client interacts with an advisor

Advice

Financial Advising is just another name for the sales industry, it's hard work, you have to build your customer base and your potential is based on how well you build your book of business and network. It an be successful but it takes time.

Global Human Resources Intern

June - August 2021 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I liked the amount of time that I was given to network.

What I wish was different

I do with the internship had been in-person or hybrid.

Advice

The first week of the internship was the hardest for myself personally. There was a Data Analysis project, as a HR intern I was confused as to why I was tasked with this. Thankfully, it is a group project so be open with your partners about your strengths and weaknesses.

What I wish was different

I wish I had gotten an in-person experience in Charlotte.

Wealth Management Summer Analyst

June - August 2021 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The community was super welcoming, my manager was helpful and sweet and the program was very organized in terms of speaker events and training sessions.

What I wish was different

I wish I had gotten to socialize with some of the other interns more. I wish we had opportunities to go into the office.

My piece of advice would be to network as much as possible with people who interest you or have commonalities with you. Those are the best people to network with because your conversations will feel natural and you might actually build a friendship from there.
