Summer Intern

June - August 2021 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I liked the amount of autonomy I had during the internship period. I liked that in order to be involved I had to stick my neck out and really get in touch with the other teams.

What I wish was different

Although the internship was 100% remote, I believe there could've been a better approach to connecting between interns via virtual happy hours or networking sessions.

Advice

If you don't ask, you won't receive. If you aren't busy, ask around to see if anyone can use any help. Also, always be vocal about your pending timelines and bandwidth. Above all, be an asset where you can and not a burden.

Risk Management Intern

June - August 2021 • White Plains, NY

What I liked

I enjoyed being able to work on a meaningful project, and being treated like an equal member of the team, not just an intern. The work I did had a meaningful impact on the future of the Liquidity Risk Team. I was able to work closely with the FRBNY and higher-ups within the bank.

Advice

It is extremely important to go into your internship eager to ask questions and to learn. Throughout my program, I made a point to clarify my knowledge and learn as much as possible each time I was introduced to a new concept. Not only does this help you learn more about the industry, it also shows the members of your team that you care about learning as much as possible.

Leveraged Finance Intern

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I enjoyed the company culture as it was very open to having interns participate in all of the steps of the deal process, which gave me a great opportunity to learn. In addition, the intern activities in the company such as a volunteer day and a group case study allow you to get a more global perspective of the company.
