Daniela Blanco is a Management major set to graduate in May 2020. This summer she interned for Brown Brothers Harriman as a Private Banking Analyst in New York City.
What was your favorite part of the experience?
Being with the Trading Team, I found very interesting learning the start and finish of a trade. From a client call, to building the trade, to executing it. Analyzing client portfolios gave me a clearer perspective on clients’ goals and strategies to their wealth.
What did you find most challenging about your internship?
Our Intern Orientation was very brief so we had to learn everything by ourselves. I grabbed a notebook and started writing down every term and acronym I heard my team mention. Cut off BBH marketing materials and made a scrapbook. My team found out about my notebook and called it “The Holy Grail”. I also looked for people close to my age for any notes or PowerPoints about BBH.
What advice do you have for other students looking for a similar internship?
Read, read, read. Get familiar with industry terms and reach out to students with previous experience. If you get told no, say thank you and move on to the next! You’ll find the right fit for you. Keep pushing.
How did Eller prepare you for your internship?
Sometimes being assigned a team doesn’t always mean working together 24/7. I was given tasks and after completing them individually, I presented to the team. This reminded me of BCOM314, assigning everyone a task and coming together at the end to create something great!
