Financial crimes investigator.
How I got this internship:
I applied to a few programs at Schwab; this one was the most interesting to me.
What I do, day to day:
Basically, if suspicious activity is detected in a Schwab checking or brokerage account, I investigate the cause of the alert and, if necessary, I file a report to law enforcement.
I was an intern last summer with Primo Water.
Most valuable part of this experience:
The exposure. I am being exposed to another side of finance that I just didn't know existed. It's incredibly interesting and beneficial.
Advice for students considering internships:
Find a company that matches your core values and beliefs, not the other way around.
How this internship has helped me:
It's further developed my ability to reach deadlines, something that every Dickinsonian is familiar with.
Get rich, or die trying.
