My first internship before my junior year was with Verizon’s Finance Leadership Development Program. My first semester as a junior I interned at Ameriprise Financial, and my second semester at John E. McGovern Associates. PhilaU has helped me succeed in these internships by challenging and pushing me to gain more knowledge in the business world in my classes.
