Retail Associate Intern

May - August 2018 • Buffalo, NY

What I liked

This was a rotational internship. Although they did have me housed in a branch in my hometown, I was able to travel to other markets and experience similarities and differences throughout. They were also very good at exposing me to every different aspect of the bank. I had numerous shadow experiences and mentors throughout my program. I also had a series of tasks this summer that I had to compete by the end of the 12 weeks which included witnessing numerous loan closings, investment appointment, and presentations.

What I wish was different

The only thing that I would have changed about this experience is I would have given the interns more time on the platform side of the bank rather than the teller line.

Advice

Take advantage of every opportunity! Don't limit yourself with just what's on the task list. See who else you can shadow within the bank!

Retail Banking Intern

May - August 2018 • Syracuse, NY

What I liked

This internship at KeyBank helped me to realize my passions and experience personal growth. I am a mathematics major but now know that I would like to pursue a career that involves human interaction/customer service. This program also allowed the possibility of returning if this past summer proved to be a successful.

What I wish was different

I wouldn't change a thing about this internship. Over a span of 12 weeks, I spent 3 weeks at 3 different bank locations. This allowed me to experience all types of clientele, and different bank sizes and the responsibilities that come with that. In addition, I was offered a full time job to return in May as a Retail Management Associate.

Advice

My advice is to not be afraid to search for jobs that might stray a little from your major. I am a mathematics major and never thought of banking as a possible career path. I am thankful for my internship and the path it has set me on.
