Dylan McCutcheon is graduating in May 2019 he is currently pre-business (Finance and MIS Intended). Over the winter break, he had an externship at RBC Wealth Management in Tucson, AZ.
Why did you want to do this externship? I wanted to participate in this externship to gain exposure to the financial world. I have realized that hands on experience is a lot more beneficial than I thought. Apart from that, wealth management has always interested me and I could not pass up an opportunity.
What did you do during this job shadow experience? I was able to see what the host did on the daily and how he worked around others. He also showed me how he helps people everyday. This allowed me to see if this career path would be right or wrong for me.
What did you learn as a result of the externship? At the conclusion of my externship, I soaked up valuable knowledge about the finance industry. It was fascinating to witness what my host did daily and allowed me to put myself in his shoes. By doing this, it allowed me to narrow down what I want to do in the future. In addition, I acquired an extensive amount of wisdom and insight passed down from multiple mentors.
