What are some of your daily job duties?
The team of interns I was a part of were in charge of ensuring that the bank would be able to successfully go public with a stock offering. We were working closely with the bank as well as Sandler O’Neill + Partners, L.P., an investment banking firm. We managed stock order forms, verified and highlighted the information that was needed to enter into a data base system, helped perform allocations due to an over subscription, and answer any questions that would come in through phone calls from depositors or brokers.
What do you like most about your position?
The position was unique, helping with successfully completing an IPO for the bank and the people I worked with made the time there a great experience.
Did anything surprise you about the interviewing process or how you located your position?
The interview process was exactly what I had expected and I was surprised that I would be able to find such a great opportunity on indeed.com.
Do you have any tips for other students that are considering an internship or seeking full-time employment?
I would suggest visiting the Center for Career & Professional Development and utilize the services that are offered. I had my resume looked at and corrected and also received great interviewing tips in order to successfully prepare for the interview process. I would also suggest to start early and take all the interviews you can get because it will only help in the long run. The last suggestion I would have is to get your name out there and have various connections in many fields that could potentially help you get and internship or even a full-time job.
