“Being able to meet with my supervising manager weekly to give him updates and ask for anything particular I wanted to work on or learn more about, they really let me determine the type of experience I would have. I learned something new every day. They also had great intern programs like networking with leaders in the company, interview prep and going to the New York Stock Exchange. ”
