Case study:
Fred was placed at William Blair where he rotated
between departments to work on small projects and
gained greater insight into investment through extra
activities. Now at university, Fred is considering a career
in analysis or trading.
This internship has helped me in so many ways!
It has given me more clarity and I feel better
prepared to choose what career path I’d like to
pursue.”

common
misconceptions of
banks was that all
employees there
were accountants
or bankers. This
placement has
exposed me to
numerous fields
in finance.
