Magnetar Capital

Business Development Intern

June - August 2018 • Evanston, IL

What I liked

I really enjoyed the people I worked with. It was an extremely motivated group and I felt like I was making an impact at the firm.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to work closer with more interns at the hedge fund.

Advice

The largest piece of advice I can give is do your research. You will be thrown into the experience and may not know a ton about the field, but being able to draw on outside resources, keeping informed about current events, and asking coworkers for feedback can make you a better asset for your company. An internship does not always involve life changing projects for the firm, but being a critical asset and being informed can make a huge difference.
