Customer Service Representative

June 2019 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I liked how much I learned while at the bank. I learned more about personal finance and money management through observations and practice at the bank more than I did in any classroom. Also, I was trained on how to cross-sell products to potential customers and current customers.

What I wish was different

I wish that there would have been more training/information on how to move up in the company. Luckily, more co workers are terrific and gave me tips.

Advice

Do not be nervous while selling stuff (or do your best to hide it). Customers can see it and will respond poorly.

Commercial Leadership Program Intern

May - July 2019 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

Everyone at the bank was open and friendly, very willing to talk about their work and give advice.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been given more work and responsibility.

Advice

Great experience to learn about commercial banking, but the work can be dull at times. Make sure you ask lots of questions, reach out to people, and ask for as much work as possible to get the most out of the experience.

Debt Capital Markets Summer Analyst

May - August 2019 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

Great group of people, great working environment. Senior officers sit out on the floor with analysts and associates.

What I wish was different

Director did not pay us (interns) on time. Very unprofessional.

Advice

Learn a basic background of finance and accounting before starting. There are a lot of nuances specific to Debt Capital Markets but those educational areas will help.

Capital Markets Operations Intern

May - July 2018 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

Structured Program. I was able to network with over 95 individuals at the bank. I was challenged, and had a lot of responsibility. There were 60 interns downtown so it was awesome to get lunch with them and spend time with them in the city.

What I wish was different

Nothing. I wish Fifth Third had more locations to work at if you accepted full time position.

Advice

Ask questions! Build your network! Such an amazing experience. I think anyone would really love this opportunity.

Softare Developer

May - August 2018 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

Interns treated well. The Information Technology Leadership Program (ITLP) participants get a free card to talk with most anyone they want to network and connect with. I got to work under very experienced and intelligent software developers and learned some better practices

What I wish was different

I wish that the sector of banking was more interesting to me. It could have certainly lasted longer, and I wish the focus was more learning engaged rather than networking-- but I acknowledge the different priorities of the program.

Advice

Move. Be persistent about ANY on-boarding issue and get it resolved asap in the proper flow per IT's recommendations. If you don't take action, everyone else will be too busy to get you anything to do. So come to work ready to crush it. Also, contrary to that point, when you have moments to rest and enjoy other's company, take every moment to bond and practice self-care to best enjoy your time there

Commercial Leadership Program Intern

May - July 2018 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I was able to participate on a lot of deals and contributed a lot. There were opportunities to get as much out of it as I wanted to. I was able to network with many different people in the company.

What I wish was different

I wish the company did not go through a merger. I would have received a full-time offer if they had enough spots and did not have the merger.

Advice

Networking is a big part of the internship. You have the opportunity to meet with very influential people within the company.

Consumer Leadership Program Intern

May - July 2018 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I liked all of the experience and exposure I received. This was actually my third internship with 5/3 and my second in the program. They truly care about the future of their company and the people that are going to help them get there.

What I wish was different

I wish the communication would have been better.

Advice

It was a little nervewrecking at first, but any job is. Don't be afraid to be around executives, they were once in your shoes, too.

May - August 2018 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I like that I was exposed to new things in finance and business in general in a new city that I had never been to before.

What I wish was different

I wish I had prepared more for other internship interviews, but school was taking a lot of my time.

Keep on applying to internships and attending interviews until you find your one true match. Don't let a denial deter you from greatness.
