What’s happening? We’d love to hear how your internship is going! This summer, I interned for Greentree Brokerage Services, Inc, which is an investment banking firm in Philadelphia. My experience at Greentree has been very enriching, as I have developed many skills in accounting, finance, and management. Furthermore, I experienced what it is like to be in a small firm and how that affects the way one works and collaborates with one’s co-workers.
How I heard about my internship: I was interested in finance internships in the Philadelphia area. I learned about the internship at Greentree by conducting the appropriate research on various internship platforms and referrals.
Why I applied for my internship: I applied for my internship because I wanted to learn more about the world of finance, specifically that of investment banking. Interning at Greentree has allowed me to do just that, and more! The small size of the firm allows me to be a much more important participant in the everyday work of the firm, rather than just a mere observer, or being in charge of clerical work that would not teach me anything about investment banking.
