Jefferies’ internship provided me the confidence and capabilities to pursue a career in finance. My exposure to senior level management, interaction with clients and opportunity to travel to Jacksonville, Florida on a live M&A deal satisfied the hands on experience I sought as a summer Analyst.
I was challenged to solve problems in creative ways and make independent decisions that had a material effect on projects. While help was always available, I was encouraged to learn from my mistakes. The level of trust and respect that Jefferies has for its junior members defies common Wall Street stereotypes.
Each day brought new obstacles and resulting solutions that came from direct collaboration among team members. Jefferies allowed me to surround myself by talented individuals and industry leading professionals—ultimately shaping my perspective and understanding of investment banking from a strategic standpoint.
As a graduating senior searching for the right place to begin my career, I know that Jefferies—a firm that truly puts clients first—will offer me the opportunity to learn something new every day.
