What: A window into Wall Street. This is your opportunity to engage with New York-based Middlebury alumni who work at leading financial services firms including Goldman Sachs and Barclays. The trip may include additional visits with alumni at other leading-firms. This is a CAN’T MISS opportunity for any sophomore who is interested in finance as a potential career path.
**Due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic, all participants must be fully vaccinated (no exceptions) and agree to follow all protocols for bank visitors regarding masking and physical distancing.
Who: Due to Covid-19 bank restrictions, there will only be 40 places available for this trip (this number is subject to change). This program is especially important for Sophomores because now is the time to start thinking about the junior summer application process. Therefore, students with February/May 2024 and February/May 2025 graduation dates will have priority.
When: Fall Break; October 18-19
Where: New York City! The financial capital of the world. Goldman Sachs and Barclays have been confirmed for Monday. We hope to add additional firms in the coming days.
Why: Come meet and network with Middlebury alumni who year after year help Middlebury students land top internships and jobs.
How: To attend you must register via Handshake by 11:55pm on Friday, October 8th. Submit a resume and cover letter that introduces yourself and outlines why you would like to participate in this program (as PDFs!). Your application will be provided to our hosts, so please make sure to have these reviewed during CCI Quick Questions (go/PCAs/) before submission. NO FINANCE EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED.
Final Note: Accommodations and Transportation are up to each individual, but there is usually a break bus going to and from NYC straight to Penn Station! If you need a ride or someone to split a hotel with, come to an SIC or MiddWow meeting and we can find you a carpool or someone to split a hotel with.
Questions? Contact Mary McCourt at email@example.com or Ursula Olender at firstname.lastname@example.org
Midd Consulting Group (MCG), Student Investment Committee (SIC), and Middlebury Women on Wall St. (MiddWow) will co-host an information session for new and returning students to learn about pre-professional business and finance organizations on campus. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, September 15 at 7pm. Please see the attached poster details.
Let’s re-visit this important article written by former peer career advisor Caroline Jaschke ’18.
Whether you are currently applying to jobs and internships, or will be in the next couple months, you are sure to be sending out a lot of emails. After all the work you’ll put into crafting strong resumes and letters, you want to be sure that your emails reflect this same professionalism. Emails do matter!
An email is one of your first impressions to a potential employer. It is your opportunity to show off your professionalism, your maturity, and your serious interest in the position. Emails give the employer some small insight into what it’s like to interact with you as a person. While proper email etiquette is not going to get you the job, improper etiquette will turnoff the employer and hurt your job chances.
When responding to employer emails, the old dating rule “wait three days” does not apply. You’re not trying to play it “cool” and avoid coming off as “desperate.” Slow responses signal to employers that you’re not that interested. They might not waste time waiting for your response when they have a pool of other qualified candidates. In addition, waiting for your answer might irritate an interviewer. Therefore, it’s good practice to respond to emails within 24 hours. Responding and saying that you were “really busy”, is not an excuse. The potential employer is busy too, and this excuse may make them question your ability to handle the workload at their company along with various responsibilities of the job. Use your quick response time to indicate to the employer that you consider this job a top priority.
When job and internship searching over email, using professional etiquette may encourage the potential employer to take you seriously and actually read the email. Use a professional email, not your email@example.com account. Address the individual by their appropriate title (Ms., Mr., Dr., etc), write a clear subject line, and use proper grammar. Be positive, polite, and concise, but be sure to include the relevant information. If it has not already been stated that the employer would like a cover letter and resume, ask for permission to include the documents with the email. Attach your cover letter and resume, each as their own PDF, and clearly labeled with your last name (Smith_Resume). Do not paste your cover letter into the body of the email. Last, absolutely NO emoticons, no matter how perfectly the “high-five” captures your feelings about the job.
Here’s an example of what your email should NOT look like:
Here’s an example of what it should look like:
Lastly, re-read your email before you send it!

The Student Code of Conduct survey establishes the guidelines by which you may access and apply to opportunities posted in Handshake. Please complete this three-question survey as soon as possible to show that you commit to internship and job search ethics. To take the survey, log in to Handshake and click Career Center > Surveys.
- MISREPRESENTATION: I will represent myself accurately in all application processes (resumes, cover letters, interviews, program applications). Examples of misrepresentation may also include GPA inflation, exaggerated job responsibilities, citizenship/visa status, or overstated foreign language competency.
- SCHEDULED INTERVIEWS: I will arrive 10 minutes prior to all scheduled on-campus interviews. If I need to cancel a scheduled interview, I will notify my career center at least two business days prior to the scheduled on-campus interview. Late cancellations, no shows, and tardiness may forfeit my on-campus recruiting privileges.
- OFFERS: After I accept an internship or job offer, I agree to immediately withdraw all pending applications and cancel all scheduled interviews (on- and off-campus). I will notify my career center that I have accepted an offer.
You must complete this survey in order to apply for campus recruiting opportunities or schedule an interview or alumni one-on-one chat.
The Equity Associate role is that of a Junior Analyst, conducting fundamental research to make buy and sell recommendations on stocks just as would a more senior member of the research team. The internship will begin with a one-week training program including accounting, modeling and valuation training. In the following nine-weeks, the Intern will focus on completing an industry project and will independently assume coverage of three stocks. For each, the investment case will be detailed through written research and a brief presentation given to a group of senior Analysts and Portfolio Managers. At the end of the summer, we will look to extend full-time offers to those who demonstrate the aptitude, passion and desire it takes to become a successful full-time Equity Associate. Sophomores and Juniors are welcome to apply.
Apply on Handshake at https://middlebury.joinhandshake.com/jobs/5017915/ before September 14th at 11:55 p.m. ET. Pre-selected candidates will be invited to interview on-campus or virtually.
