Sebastian Walsh

Class of 2013

Major: Business Administration

Internship Employer: First Investors, East Hartford

Internship Title: Entry Level Intern

 

           Sebastian Walsh is currently partaking in an internship at First Investors in East Hartford. He is an Entry Level Intern, and performs tasks that are assigned to him by a sales representative. So far he has had to work in the mail room, licking and stamping envelopes. As time draws on, Sebastian will get to perform more important tasks, but he first has to pay his dues. Recently he was asked to read over a climate portfolio, and see how the investments the company was making were working out.  

                Sebastian has hopes of one day being a stock broker, and this internship will only help guide him in the right direction. He is learning a lot about how a business works at First Investors, and this is his first chance to work in a business office environment.  This experience has taught him that it will take a lot of hard work to get the job of his dreams.

Sebastian heard about this internship opportunity through the Center for Internships and Career Development. He then applied, interviewed, and eventually got the job. His advice to other students looking to get an internship is to make sure you apply early. "Apply early. Don't limit yourself to just one company."
