Emily interned with Morgan Stanley Wealth Management as part of the 2017 Girls Who Invest Summer Intensive Program.

Lisa Shalett, Head of Investment and Portfolio Strategies at Morgan Stanley, said “Just wanted to make sure that everyone knew what a terrific job Emily did for us this summer.  This is no ordinary praise.  I can honestly say that Emily has impressed as one of the smartest, most sophisticated thinkers and most pleasant and mature college sophomores I have ever, ever met. She is an extraordinary talent who would be a blessing for the industry and for Morgan Stanley. Thank you for the privilege of being part of what I know will be an extraordinary career journey.”

As part of the Girls Who Invest Summer Intensive Program in 2016, Keana interned at PNC. She received a return offer this summer.

“I’m optimistic and grateful for the opportunity to venture out into a whole new section of the professional world that I didn’t think was readily available to me and, despite coming in at a disadvantage, finding success in the asset management division of a bank. That’s something that some people – and most English majors – don’t get to experience during their college years, so I don’t take it for granted.” Read more about Keana’s experience.

Simi Shah, Harvard University, Class of 2019, Economics Major

As part of the 2017 Girls Who Invest Summer Intensive Program, Simi interned with Wellington Management.

Simi says, “All in all, I don't even think I realized just how much I had learned until I consolidated all my knowledge into my final presentation. It's very exciting to be able to understand things I don't think I understood 2 months or even 6 weeks ago.

I had an interview for a return offer for next summer and am keeping my fingers crossed! Wellington is an amazing place, and I am so shocked and thrilled with how much I learned in such a short time. Can't thank you all enough for such a stellar placement.”

Meagan Loyst, Boston College, Class of 2018, Finance and Information Systems Double Major

During the 2016 Girls Who Invest Summer Intensive Program, Meagan interned at Perry Capital. She went on to intern with J.P. Morgan Asset Management this summer.

Meagan says, “We had a built-in support group while we were all going through our internships, with people our age to turn to whenever we had questions or tips we wanted to share with the broader group. I wasn’t expecting to become so close to the girls in the program when I first started. I was pleasantly surprised to find that everyone was collaborative and willing to help each other, even during recruiting when some of us were applying for the same jobs.” Read more about Meagan’s experience.
