Give us a brief summary of your experience?

My experience at Mid Penn Bank helped expand my knowledge of banking an financial services. Additionally, this internship helped me recognize the importance of community service and giving back to local areas. One of my favorite experiences from my internship was getting together with the other Mid Penn Bank interns and trimming trails at the Big Boyd Tree Farm in Harrisburg. I enjoyed getting to know my peers while helping out the local state park. Overall, this internship helped my professional development and enabled me to create important connections with my mentors and peers.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

My internship experience impacted my future career goals because it allowed me to explore the money and banking side of economics. I have not had much exposure to the financial side of economics in my coursework because I typically take classes relating to the political side of economics, so this internship allowed me to realize that I am open to careers in finance as well as economics and political science.

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 College of Liberal Arts has helped me to succeed in this experience through the help of career advisers and enrichment funds. I was advised to apply to the Chapel Executive Internship program by a Liberal Arts Career adviser. The enrichment funds have allowed me to have less financial stress and focus solely on my internship experience.
