Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions in order to build knowledge about the career you would like to pursue/ are interested in.

Global Information Security Summer Intern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I liked how I was able to work on both the program's overall intern project and worked with other interns across the U.S., as well as to work with my manager on her own work. I especially liked how they flew us to the headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina to present our project to the Senior Leadership Team.

What I wish was different

I wish I was applying the skills I learned in the classroom to the internship. I told my manager about my concerns about wanting to code. However, because she did not work on that, she couldn't give me any work for that.

Advice

To network!!! Everyone is willing to share 15 minutes to answer any question!

Advisor Development Program Intern

June - August 2019 • Elk Grove, CA

What I liked

Lots of locations available so I got to live at home. Pay was good and it was full time. Big company name to put on resume. Nice people in my office.

What I wish was different

I didn’t learn much and the manager didn’t know what I would be doing all summer. They just had me greet people at the bank all day. The days went by very slowly.

Advice

Try and get the Merrill track. If not, find a different internship.

Advisor Development Intern

June - August 2019 • Hillsboro, OR

What I liked

I liked being in a financial Center and being able to travel to different ones to see how all different roles work together. I also enjoyed working on group projects with other interns in different offices throughout the west coast.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have had more direct, personal contact with other interns, as everything was via phone or video conference. I also wish I would have had more access to the Merrill Lynch offices and would have been able to shadow an FA in their offices, rather than the ones that sit-in at the banking centers.

Advice

Come in with an open mind and be willing to do whatever they ask to do, whether it relates to your wished career path or not. You're going to learn so much from working in a financial center.

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I liked how great the company was in terms of communication. Considering how big the company is, every intern got individual guidance and help from their mentors.

intern

June - August 2019 • Rochester, MN

What I liked

The team I worked with made all of the difference for me. Being a marketing major in a finance internship my team was able to redirect what they could to make my time there more meaningful.

What I wish was different

When applying I didn't know what the internship entailed, so I didn't know how finance heavy it would be. I wish when applying the recruiter was more open about how the program worked.

Advice

Even if your internship isn't exactly in the field you wanted take it with open arms. I learned so much more than I could ever imagine. From how to network, to how to conduct meetings, to how an office truly works it's amazing the amount of things you will learn without even realizing it. Be open, take the chance, and say yes to new opportunities.
