"I’d recommend this externship to others because it’s super valuable and a great way to get experience within the finance industry. It's normally pretty hard to get experience in finance because it’s so competitive, especially for for underclassmen like me."
"It's very simple. I found it very helpful and not overwhelming. I like the way it's structured and I like the weekly check-ins. It's not like you're given a report to complete and then 'see you in 8 weeks later and we can discuss."
"I would recommend this externship to international students like me. I think this remote externship is very attractive in itself. I believe the flexible schedules and performance-based work provide great opportunities for students to test their own potential."
