Internship Spotlight – Robert Boghosian, Bank of America

Eller PDC Coordinator Student Stories

Robert Boghosian is a Finance major set to graduate in May 2020.  This summer he interned for Bank of America as a Summer Analyst in Phoenix, Arizona. 

How did you get this internship?

I received this internship through application via Handshake.  I did not know anyone applying to the program, but I was able to do a good job in the interview phases and receive an offer.

What was your favorite part of the experience?

Being able to network with individuals across every line of business within Bank of America was incredibly beneficial.  I would spend as much time as I wanted setting up informational interviews and to be able to get a better picture of the organization as a whole.

If you worked on a big project, please describe it below:

The specific project that I worked on was streamlining the bank’s relationship deepening program in order to gain client depth.  The avenue which I chose established an outbound calling program in order to enroll current clients in our preferred rewards program.  Not only did this program establish incentives for our associates to gain additional client depth, but we also saw a large increase in the enrollment rates of the preferred rewards program.

How did Eller prepare you for your internship?

Being able to conduct myself in a professional setting was very important to my success in this internship.  During the interview phase as well as during the actual program itself, being able to articulate myself in a manner which projected my professional abilities was quintessential to my success.
