Liberal Arts Major: Economics
Hometown: Chester Springs, Pennsylvania
Chapel Executive Intern
Experience Time: Summer 2022

Give us a brief summary of your experience?

I was a quantitative analytics intern at PNC. At my internship in the Washington, D.C. area I used programming, statistics, and machine learning to generate solutions for the bank. My team presented a final project incorporating these skills in Pittsburgh to our team of executives and managers.

How did this experience impact you academically?

It was useful academically as I had not had the chance to apply much of what I had learned in college up to this point. Use it or lose it as they say. To be specific, applying programming in the real world and working with large data structures that require financial insight helped ingrain the skills I have developed throughout college.

"I improved my financial literacy and made a number of connections that I can draw from throughout my career for wisdom, advice, and opportunity."

How will this experience impact your career goals?

I would like to work in banking so this internship was a valuable stepping stone toward that goal. I learned and applied a number of skills that are important in banking today. I improved my financial literacy and made a number of connections that I can draw from throughout my career for wisdom, advice, and opportunity.

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

The Chapel Executive Internship award made the living and food expenses during this internship far more affordable. As a result of this funding I was able to focus on succeeding in this internship and receiving a return offer. This money also enabled me to save some money that I made during this internship which benefits my financial situation next semester.
