Internship Success Story

I was involved with the Chartwell Internship program after my Junior year at the University of Minnesota. The training program Chartwell provides improved my Excel and financial analysis skills exponentially. Going back into my senior year of college, my finance classes became easier after learning many new skills that were directly applicable to my classes. Chartwell gives every intern great exposure by allowing us to work directly with top level managers on real projects. Chartwell provided many opportunities to succeed and allowed me to achieve personal goals; for example, I wanted to join the Modeling Committee to further improve my Excel skills.  I became an active member of the Committee and I was in charge of a project to create a new segment of the valuation model from scratch - which is now a standard part of many valuations. The program was very rewarding as I was able to add value to projects and clients through my work, as well as be a part of such a fun company culture.
