What is the title of your summer internship? Secondary Markets Intern at Union Home Mortgage

How did you go about getting this internship? I used LinkedIn to find opportunities and then reached out to a recruiter.

What was the greatest challenge in finding an internship? For this specific internship it wasn’t very difficult, but I put in countless hours of searching for an internship in general.

What do you think you will learn/gain from your internship experience? An unbelievable amount of knowledge in the financial services industry. More specifically, investment related information within the mortgage industry.

What do you hope to be doing professionally after graduation? I plan to work in financial services at a larger bank. Ideally in a city and, hopefully, in asset management.

Without worrying about how realistic it may be, what is your dream job and why? I have two dream jobs; one of them being in Sales and Trading at a large financial institution. This is because there is so much information to learn and one never stops learning in this job.  My other dream job would be to start a company of my own, this would be exciting because entrepreneurship runs in my family and I believe entrepreneurship is the driving force behind the future of the US economy.

What advice would you give fellow Bobcats seeking internships? Never stop searching, even when you continue to fail and fail. No one gets their dream job right away and it often takes an extreme amount of work and many baby steps.
