Meet Our Interns

This summer we are thrilled to welcome nine interns to our company. A few of these wonderful high school and college kids work with us year round, but most of them are here for the first time this summer. Our interns are given the opportunity to work on many different projects, including web design, writing, and meeting with our staff and product dealers to learn more about the financial world. We love the fresh outlook and creative ideas they bring to the table.

Quite a few of our interns are interested in working in finance or becoming entrepreneurs and small business owners, and we are so excited to be nurturing that spirit and giving them a taste of what the business is like. We truly believe that the future belongs to these young adults and that making sure they have a solid foundation to move into the professional world is key to the success of our company.
