Kaulkin Ginsberg Company’s (KGC) analyst team takes on highly qualified and hardworking students, usually from the Greater D.C. Metropolitan Area, to intern with the firm each spring, summer, and fall. We interview and correspond with dozens of candidates for each semester, learning about applicants’ interests, goals, and motivations in order to select the candidates we feel would work well with our tight-knit group. In the past, we’ve talked with undergraduate and graduate students, finance and math majors, students living in Maryland and Virginia, and international students seeking real-world experiences in the U.S. Simply put, we enjoy working with students who are eager to learn and gain experience.
This past fall, KGC selected one intern to assist the team. In addition to being a part-time intern, he was a full-time Master of Science candidate focused in business analytics at the University of Maryland, College Park. He assisted our analyst team in various market research initiatives, primarily focused on creating dynamic research-sorting formulas to increase efficiencies when gathering market and economic data.
In addition to his primary research-oriented responsibilities, our intern worked with KGC’s analysts on the development of several blogs to support the firm’s marketing and communications efforts. His blogs covered a wide variety of topics such as exploring a potential effect of increasing minimum wage laws and analyzing student lending data based on region.
Overall, he was given the opportunity to develop and refine his knowledge of business process, research, and financial concepts, while strengthening his written communication skills. Most importantly, he maintained utmost professionalism and a high work ethic throughout the part-time internship in the fall. As he continues developing his skills, he will surely leverage his KGC internship experiences to secure future internship and job opportunities. Lastly, we’ve remained in contact with him and look forward to receiving updates on his career successes.
Going forward, we’ll continue expanding our internship program, selecting students with the greatest work ethic and integrity. We strive to create a program that not only benefits our firm, but one that also provides unique opportunities for students to apply their classroom knowledge and experiences to real-world projects and assignments.
As always, we’re open to talking with current students interested in our internship program. If interested, please don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org, providing a resume, or simply introducing yourself to our team.
To our fall 2018 intern: thank you for all of your hard work and persistence. You were a vital component to the KGC team throughout your time here.
