Excellent experience, challenging work, brutal hours -- really gives you a taste of life on Wall Street.

Research, Sales, and Trading Intern

June - August 2017 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

I liked learning about all aspects of the bonds industry mainly pricing and credit analysis. Everyone in my office was incredibly helpful and made sure that the other interns and I had a stable understanding of whatever topic was being discussed.

What I wish was different

I had an incredible experience and would not really change anything. One aspect I would change is our intern project. We had to produce a research report on a company with high yield distressed debt and present it the third to last day of our internship. This project consumed the majority of my time for the last two weeks and took away from my learning experiences.

Advice

Make sure to ask as many questions as possible. That being said do not ask questions that reflect lack of effort on your part.
