SunTrust Robinson Humphrey

Corporate Functions Audit Intern

August 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

A real hands-on experience in which I was tasked with applying the accounting and finance concepts to SOX testing procedures. The flexibility of choosing your hours allowed me to leverage school work well.

What I wish was different

The ability to engage more in a teamwork setting rather than individual.

Advice

Ask logical questions and commit to the position as if it were a full-time position.

Data Analytics Intern

June - August 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

Every day and every experience was a learning opportunity. Not only did I learn a lot about my field of study, but I got a taste of what a real job working with people of different backgrounds is like. Whether those differences were academic, professional, or cultural, learning how to work well with others on a team is just as important as having top-notch technical skills.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have worked on more projects. I had two main projects to work on, but I felt I could have done more.

Advice

I should have talked to more people in management positions. I only spoke to a handful of them, mostly because I was too intimidated or felt they wouldn't want to be bothered by an intern. In reality, those people are the ones who are most willing to help you and give advice. Don't ever be afraid to ask higher ups for advice. Not only does it show you are interested and committed, but you may learn something new!

I am a business banker, so this was and still is a great job and career path that i plan on pursuing. The salary is good and they help pay for my schooling!

What I wish was different

I really wouldn't change anything.

Advice

I recommend everyone get a job that can offer more than money. Networking is the most important thing that you could do to increase success.

Whole Sale Development Program

June - August 2019 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

I have had a great exposure to what are the different sides of the banking industry

What I wish was different

I wish managers would get interns involved more in the current project and have an active mentoring system

Advice

This internship was an excellent way to get a feel for the banking industry and a great opportunity to see it from the inside. If you plan to intern in Nashville, make sure have a good Excel base including financial modeling and shortcuts - it will help you to benefit from the internship more

Business Analyst Intern

June - August 2018 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I like the environment and culture of Suntrust. Gwendolyn, Allen, and the internship program facilitators did an awesome job at ensuring we- the interns- received proper information and resources to make sure we had an unforgettable experience.

What I wish was different

In a sense everything turned out way better than I hoped for, however if I had a chance to experience the different department within Suntrust - I would have gotten a better understanding of the processes that run the business, but the experience is what you make it and that was my responsibility to make happen.

Advice

The experience is what you make it. If you want to learn more about a certain department- make it know. If you want to work with a different team- make it known. The key i to be transparent because nobody knows what you want until you make it know. Everybody at Suntrust is very resourceful and friendly so you will not have an issue communicating with others.

June - August 2018 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

The experience gained and the support of the team. The ability to get live-deal experience and make an impact even as a summer intern.

What I wish was different

Shorter hours and protected Saturdays would have helped me handle stress and lack of sleep better.

Advice

Be ready to work hard, commit yourself to helping the team and you will find reward in the experience.

Internal Audit Intern

May - August 2017 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

Great company, very helpful and friendly co-workers. Learned a good deal about auditing procedures, and the operations of a financial institution.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have been more involved with the quantitative analytics.

Advice

Learn as much as you can during your first couple of weeks, and ask as many questions as you can. For finance majors the Financial Institutions course is helpful. Also keep asking if there is anything you could do without waiting for an assignment. Take advantage of networking opportunities.
