Wells Fargo

Financial Analyst Intern

June - August 2019 • Minneapolis, MN

What I liked

There were many things I enjoyed about my summer internship, but one of the things I loved most was how I had the ability to be involved in so many different projects and that my voice, my opinions, and my research mattered. I was not sitting on the sidelines doing busy work, I was actually looking at financial reports and preparing writeups to be seen by senior managers and deal team officers.

What I wish was different

One thing I wish was different about my internship is the resources provided to learn about different lines of business in commercial banking. Being provided more time to have interaction with analysts and managers from other lines of business would have been beneficial to my overall experience.

Advice

I suggest that you take this opportunity with an open mind. Going into the first day, I was nervous - scared that I wouldn't know much of anything and that I would not adjust well to the environment. But the moment I shook my first hand that morning and was introduced to the team, I felt that I belonged. I was provided all the material I needed to succeed during my internship and each staff was there for help whenever I needed it.

Auditor

June - August 2019 • Des Moines, IA

What I liked

I very much enjoyed the work. I had the opportunity to audit statistical models for validity and compliance to company risk policy.

What I wish was different

I didn't have many expectations going into my internship. But I came away with lots of knowledge and industry experience. I learned more this summer than any previous summer in college. I would have liked to spread out my experience throughout the company; I worked with the same team for the entire summer.

Advice

Don't have presuppositions or ideas of what your work may be like. Go in with an open mind and a heart willing to work hard and grow.

Program Management Intern

May - August 2019 • Greensboro, NC

What I liked

I liked that I got to go to various universities and speak to students about their financial opportunities with Wells Fargo.

What I wish was different

I wish that I didn't have to travel as much to different cities. I would have appreciated it if my manager was more organized. I didn't like spending a lot of one on one time with my manager. I didn't have many tasks to do and that became frustrating.

Advice

Never to go into a job with really high expectations if you didn't ask questions specifically to your daily activities.

It was an extremely challenging and rewarding experience. I was pushed harder than any of my prior internships and allowed me to develop both my hard and soft skills.
