Stepping foot onto the floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange was exhilarating. The energy from the trading floor that afternoon was so vibrant. My interest for financial markets went from being conceptual to emotional in a matter of moments

I spent the summer working for a financial services company in the greater Washington D.C. area. I was responsible for processing client applications, scheduling client meetings, and producing financial projections. I was also able to sit in on client meetings and gain valuable "soft skills" that are difficult to develop in the classroom. At the conclusion of the internship, I was offered a position to be a Financial Paraplanner.
