Jake Fenlon, Intern with Bank of America Merrill Lynch
Fenlon, now a senior, is heading home to Rochester, New York for a wealth management opportunity:
“This summer I am working in Wealth Management at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Rochester, NY and I am incredibly excited to join the team.”
And how did Fenlon find this internship?
“Well, securing an internship for this summer involved cold-emailing as many firms as I could. This particular opportunity, however, arose in a funny way. A few member of my family were eating out at a restaurant and they happened to meet a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch. After a quick conversation the advisor gave them his business card, I reached out to him, and the rest is history. So it actually ended up being a much easier process than I had anticipated.”
So what is Fenlon hoping to gain from the experience?
“I am looking forward to learning as much information as I possibly can. There is a lot to know in finance and I am in the process of sifting through it all and determining what I am most interested in pursuing after college. This summer will be a great opportunity to finally gain hands on experience in the field.”
