Calculating an entry into a finance career
As soon as Christopher Light completed his final exams in May of his junior year, he was presented with the opportunity to undertake his full-semester internship at Brookwood Financial Partners.
Christopher credits his internship at Brookwood Financial Partners, a private equity firm in Beverly, Mass., with helping him launch his finance career. At Brookwood, Light gained experience in real estate investment and participated in the company’s newest venture, which involved valuing businesses. As a result of his strong performance, opportunity knocked again, this time early in his senior year with a full-time job offer at Hamilton Lane, an international investment firm based in Philadelphia where he is currently employed. However, Light keeps in touch with his Brookwood colleagues who helped him with all facets of his life as an intern, including giving him tips to improve his golf game.
