How did you learn about this opportunity?

I spoke to Penn State alumni who worked at Credit Suisse and also made use of the on-campus recruiting resources available. I spoke with my peers who have interned on Wall Street. Speaking to my peers as part of the Penn State Asset Management Group was very helpful in preparing me for the interviews and the internship.

Tell us a little bit about your experience.

I have learned a lot during my time at Credit Suisse and I hope to learn a lot more about the capital markets. I have been able to experience closely the world of finance and it has given me a lot of understanding for my future career aspirations.

How did this experience impact you academically?

The experience was very helpful for me in understanding what I want to study for my senior year and my semester abroad. I will be spending my Fall semester in Spain studying European economics. Currently at Credit Suisse I cover European Technology companies so this experience helped me in deciding my study abroad plans. At the same time it has given me guidance on what I want to work in after graduation.

What are your career goals and plans?  How did this experience impact them?

My career goal is to be in finance after I graduate from Penn State and this experience will help me a lot. It is very hard to get a job in finance without prior internship experience so this helps me in crossing that hurdle and securing full-time employment.

Would you recommend this experience to other Liberal Arts students?

I would definitely recommend an internship to other Liberal Arts students because while a liberal arts education gives you a very strong set of academic and critical thinking skills it does not provide you with a set career path like a major in accounting or chemistry. An internship is an opportunity to explore the various potential career paths that you might be interested in post-graduation.
