How does the bank support your development?

I have amazing mentors at the firm. My direct manager also supports and encourages me to achieve anything I put my mind to. The flat structure at Bank of America makes it very easy to voice my opinions and not feel intimidated to speak up.   

What are the most rewarding aspects of your job?

The most rewarding aspect of my job is being a part of a team that appreciates my work. I am able to add value to my team and their confidence in me gives me motivation to work hard each day. I truly enjoy being around a strong, dynamic team that is both positive and encouraging.

What is your biggest accomplishment or achievement at Bank of America?

My biggest accomplishment this year was having the opportunity to co-captain and organize a Bank of America team for an Alzheimer’s walk representing New York City. We were able to raise a few thousand dollars in the fight against  Alzheimer’s disease.

What persuaded you to work for Bank of America?

I was persuaded to join Bank of America Merrill Lynch by the opportunity to go through a rotational program that allowed me to develop both professionally and personally. During my rotation, I was exposed to all parts of the Investments Group and really learned how we all fit together as a team. I received an enormous amount of exposure and was able to finish my rotation well rounded and well connected.     

What advice would you give to students?

My advice to students would be to try to be a sponge during their internships, and absorb as much as possible. It’s up to you to try to learn as much as you possibly can. An internship is not just about the company getting to know you, but it’s also about you deciding if Bank of America is the best fit for you.
