Intern, Internal Audit

June 2023 - August 2023 New York City, NY
“I really enjoyed working with a team of positive people that wanted to invest in my learning as well as working on projects that had a direct impact to the other departments within the bank. I also enjoyed have a speaker series through the internship to learn about different facets of the organization.”

Leasing & Finance Origination Summer Intern

June 2023 - August 2023 New York City, NY
“Incredible experience to learn from some extremely smart people. Everyone on the SMBC Leasing & Finance team was amazing to work with. Work varied based on ongoing deals in different stages. Was able to help the team with creating pitchbooks, underwriting deals, financial and credit analysis, industry research, and more. I was in the office 4-5 days a week, which meant I had great facetime with my coworkers, which overall led to more opportunities to learn from and hear from others. It was very easy to access upper management in my group and have genuine discussions. Great opportunities to learn about other groups in the bank as well. Everyone I talked to outside of my group, from analyst level to MD, was happy to sit down and talk to me about their work and experiences. The intern program is excellent with fun intern events happening all throughout the program and speaker events happening multiple times each week. Very valuable to hear from senior management of the bank.”
