Summary of Internship

Merrill Lynch provides a comfortable and accepting work atmosphere that gives beginners a real perspective on the business world. Responsibilities vary throughout each coming week and have given me the proper education to further my knowledge about wealth management. Duties can range from filing papers, picking up mail, rewriting notes, data entry, research, reviewing files, and even managing financial statements. During this experience, I have taken on numerous tasks and projects that have helped me get a greater understanding of the wealth management division of the company. With working with such an elite group, I have learned business competition, ethic, and relations.
