Graham Kralic ’25, an economics major and communications minor, journeyed  to the corporate headquarters of PNC for his summer internship. PNC is one of the largest diversified financial services institutions in the United States.

We asked Graham…

How did you find your summer internship?

Graham: I found this opportunity through CBE advertising, general knowledge of PNC Bank, and the desire to work here for many years. In obtaining my internship, I  leveraged the Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD)  services (Shoutout to Autumn Parker, Jim Fitch, and Brian Collingwood), alumni connections (Jennifer Daurora ’99), and my own personal connections who work at the bank.

What are your duties?

Graham: As a C&IB Treasury Management Intern, I support Treasury Management Officers on my team in the solutioning of treasury management products to corporate and institutional banking clients at PNC. Simply put, Treasury management is the process of extending the funds flow cycle within a company’s treasury department. This means helping companies receive A/R payments more quickly, managing liquidity, and delaying A/P payments for as long as possible.

Would you recommend this experience to other students?

Graham: I would highly recommend a PNC internship to anyone who will listen. There are so many different intern positions that they offer from corporate finance to HR services, there is a niche for everyone. The program has offered me countless opportunities to learn and take on additional responsibility within my business unit.

What other activities are you involved in on campus?

Graham: I am  a CBE Fellow, economics major and communications minor, scheduled to graduate in the spring of 2025. I participates in Men’s Varsity Soccer, Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Delta Tau Delta Fraternity, and serve the department as a Macroeconomic Theory Teaching Assistant.
