April 2017 As part of Chartwell’s ongoing educational outreach program, we recently hosted a group of 11 students from the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management career trek program. The students met with our professionals in our Minneapolis office and learned more about Chartwell and career options in valuation and corporate finance. Organized by the Undergraduate Business Career Center, the consulting and investment banking career treks offer students the opportunity to visit leading companies in the world of finance, network with distinguished alumni, and explore career opportunities. As many trek participants are undecided about their career path, these excursions provide the opportunity to learn more about investment banking careers and see what it is like to work in finance through educational sessions at multiple firms throughout an entire day. Each session typically consists of a small panel discussion and time for Q&A. The treks also provide students with a real-world networking opportunity by exposing them to other students, corporate recruiters, professionals, and alumni. Managing Director Rich Chapman kicked off the day in our Minneapolis headquarters with an introduction to Chartwell, providing an overview of our 20-year history and the services we provide. Peg Tanzer then outlined the typical career progression of an analyst at Chartwell and emphasized the importance of soft skills for a career in finance. To conclude, a mix of junior and senior Chartwell professionals participated in a Q&A, sharing their career experience and advice with the students. This is the third year Chartwell has participated in Carlson’s educational outreach program. Chartwell is proud to support the career development of the next generation of professionals and honored to have the opportunity to market our firm to the best undergraduate talent in Minneapolis for future employment.
