Wells Fargo

Business Banking Analyst Intern

June - August 2018 • Marietta, GA

What I liked

I liked that I felt apart of the team. The other intern and I were each given an office and our own laptop to take home. We had a project that we had to present to senior leadership via video conference at the end of the internship, which really helped me learn a lot about credit and finance. The presentation also helped me learn how to calm my nerves and deliver an excellent presentation. I went on a lot of client calls to many different high-end restaurants as well, such as McKendrick's, Davio's, and Stoney River.

What I wish was different

I wish that I was given more tasks and things to work on throughout the internship so that I could see how daily life would be. I worked on the project for a consistent 6 weeks, which felt like it dragged on and on. At one point, I got frustrated because that was all I would work on when I came in.

Advice

My piece of advice is when looking for a internship, really look at the responsibilities in the description because that will tell you what your daily duties will be each day. I used to be monetarily driven, however I realized that money is not everything in the beginning. You really need to find what you like to do and while doing an internship, if it is something you could see yourself doing as a career.

Consumer Lending Intern

June - August 2018 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I was able to work on a diverse set of projects that allowed me to gain exposure to many different areas of business. People at the bank were extremely willing to discuss their careers with me and teach me skills I was interested in learning. They had a 2 day conference for the Consumer Lending Interns in Des Moines, Iowa which allowed me to meet and talk with several leaders at the bank. I was also able to meet interns that were located in other offices and learn about their positions. My boss was always eager to help me make connections and answer all of my questions. We were able to spend 2 days doing community service in the local area. There were weekly web seminars to hear from interns in other programs, get advice from recruiters, and even interact with the CEO. Overall, the experience was great.

What I wish was different

Advice

Spend as much time as possible making connections.

May 2019 • Tampa, FL

What I liked

I like that I have been able to work in a financial environment, and I have learned a lot about the flow of money. Seeing as my major is finance, I think that starting off small in a commercial bank will help prepare me for whatever career I seek in the future.

What I wish was different

The training process felt strenuous, but I was also taking three summer classes at the same time, so I was a bit stressed. However, I liked the challenge and I feel like I embraced my hidden strengths.

Advice

Take your time with learning something unfamiliar. Be patient with yourself and your work. That's what leads to success.

Summer Financial Analyst

June - August 2018 • Minneapolis, MN

What I liked

I loved the friendly and collaborative atmosphere. I got to meet with and hear from many different people across lines of businesses and different groups to gain an understanding of the many opportunities that exist within the bank. The other interns were also very friendly and great people to work with. We had several different projects in our office that we got to work on, and it was great to collaborate with them or ask for their help and advice. We had a blast working and learning together the whole summer!

What I wish was different

We had a speaker series every week with interns from other groups in the bank, and we got to learn about many different groups. However, our group didn't have a chance to speak, so the other interns never learned exactly what it is that we do. That was a little disappointing, but made sense with how many groups there are within the bank.

Advice

It is a great time to ask questions about anything and everything. If you're curious about company culture, different groups, different lines of businesses, or how someone got into their role, you shouldn't be afraid to reach out to people and ask. Everyone I met loved talking to the interns and investing in making their time at the company a great experience!

Financial Analyst

June - August 2020 • Phoenix, AZ

What I liked

During Covid, the internship moved to virtual which allowed all of the MMB (Middle Market Banking) interns to group together for the speaker series that WF had set up. I got a chance to meet a lot of other students from all around the country and listen/speak to C-suite executives to include Charles Scharf.

What I wish was different

Understandably, we weren't allowed to go into the office during our internship due to Covid so I missed out on meeting my supervisor and other analyst face to face.

Advice

Work hard, have at least 5-10 questions prepared before every speaker event, and network as much as possible.
