Kaulkin Ginsberg Company’s (KGC) analyst team takes on highly qualified and hardworking students 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 iteration, 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. All across the board, we enjoy working with students who are eager to learn and gain experience.
This past spring, KGC selected two new interns, both juniors from the University of Maryland; one focusing on finance and accounting, while the other on finance and economics. The interns assisted our analysts in various finance and market research initiatives, ranging from creating dynamic, multi-scenario financial statement and valuation models, to conducting an in-depth examination of the call center industry, deregulation of the U.S. economy, sub-prime auto loan market, and performing case studies on publicly traded credit grantors across several accounts receivable management (ARM) verticals.
In addition to their finance and research oriented responsibilities, each intern worked with KGC’s analysts on the development of several individual, and one collaborative, blog to support the firms marketing and communications efforts. Their blogs covered a wide variety of topics such as tax reform at the federal and state level, monetary policy, and M&A strategies for the ARM industry.
Overall, each intern was given the opportunity to develop and refine their knowledge of financial and economic concepts, while strengthening their written communication skills. Most importantly, our interns performed well academically throughout the semester and leveraged their KGC internship experience to secure summer internship opportunities with future, target employers. Lastly, we’ve remained in contact with our interns and look forward to receiving updates on their 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 spring 2018 interns: thank you for all of your hard work and persistence. You were both vital components to the KGC team over your time here.
