My statement would be something like: I went into this internship knowing almost nothing about the financial sector. Through my work at OTR Global I’ve established a working vocabulary of important financial terms and understand the sector more than I ever thought possible. My favorite part of this internship was how involved leadership in the company was on a daily basis. It’s such an amazing part of being in a small company that Stanton and other leaders were so accessible and often directly gave me projects. Next summer I’m working at Bank of America in GWIM, which I think my internship at OTR Global really paved the way for.

Take away from your internship at OTR:

The OTR internship has provided me with the exposure to various facets of the Financial Research Industry. This position has allowed me to work on projects for the marketing department, assist the sales staff with prospecting clients, and work with the management team on various business development assignments. I have been able to observe and put into perspective how the Buy and Sell side firms interact with one another as well as the day to day routine of the sales staff and operations staff. As someone interested in pursuing a career in finance, I have gained valuable skills and knowledge in understanding the markets and data analysis. Many of the projects I was assigned dealt with data from OTR’s proprietary portal. I have sharpened my ability to manipulate Excel formulas to analyze large data sets as well as my ability to present them to superiors in a succinct and appealing manor. Some of these projects include constructing a pipeline illustrating the size and demand of potential OTR clients and measuring the impact OTR Research has on a given ticker on its release date.

The entire team at OTR is extremely pleasant to work with as well as interested in your success. On numerous occasions I have used my connections with the people I work with here for career advice and best practices moving forward. I believe this experience is a great stepping stone to anyone interested in pursuing a career in the financial services industry.

I would say that there were two main take aways from my OTR Global Internship.

I worked on models, marketing, promotional materials, research, and many other elements of a financial institution that gave me better insight to what exactly I am interested in pursuing in the future.
