We asked Lucia…

How did you find my summer internship? 

An Allegheny Alum worked there and referred the opportunity to our Career Education team.

What were your duties?

I worked for the Group Financial Security team. Essentially, our team was tasked with US sanction compliance across all business lines/operating divisions of the BNPP Group. My main project for the summer was an internal auditing review.

Would you recommend the experience to other students? 

YES! I would recommend working for BNP because of many reasons. It is the perfect way to get exposure to the finance industry, especially the location at their headquarters in NYC. They provide a good introduction and transition process for incoming interns, making us feel empowered doing actual work while getting support from HR, our managers, and other peers in our department. I had the opportunity to network and go on coffee chats with most of the people in my department! They also have a direct hire program for summer interns, including sponsoring visas for international students.
