Internships launch career in business
Alexa Beatrice is set to begin her business career in a familiar place thanks to her internships at Endicott College.
What are your plans for after Commencement?
After graduation, I will be working at Wellington Management in Boston in the Business Associate program, working with investment analytics and investment products and strategies.
I landed my full-time job opportunity after completing two internships at Wellington – the first in global accounting and the second in investment analytics after meeting an HR recruiter and my future boss at an event here at Endicott.
Is there a particular faculty member, advisor, or another community member that has been an integral part of your student success and development?
Someone at Endicott who I have worked really closely with has been Internship Coordinator and Assistant Professor, Cathy Butler. She’s been a really great support system and mentor throughout my career at Endicott. Another faculty member that has helped me be successful is Professor John Mussachia. I’ve had him for all of my finance courses and he’s helped me develop skills that I’ve been able to apply at my internships.
What is your fondest memory, the biggest takeaway, or something you miss the most from your undergraduate career at Endicott?
My fondest memory at Endicott was hosting the first-ever Women in LEADership Changemakers Conference during my sophomore year. It was a great opportunity to bring industry professionals to campus to network with current students.
One piece of advice that I have for incoming students is to get involved. You’ll meet so many great people here on campus and you can really experience the Endicott community. You’ll also develop skills outside of the classroom that you can apply at your internship sites.
