The work we were doing was awesome, along with the other interns and team.

What I wish was different

I wish we were in person for the internship, but the remote work had its pros and cons.

Go into an internship with an open mind and eagerness to learn! I learned a tremendous amount by stepping out of my comfort zone.

Customer Relationship Advocate

May 2021 • Jacksonville, FL

What I liked

I loved and currently love how attentive, diligent, and ambitious the culture at Fidelity truly is. Everyone, from Regional Managers, to Sales, to my co-workers, and my supervisors, is so kind and transparent about wanting you to succeed and/or move up in the company. I especially enjoyed how not toxic and professional everyone was. Being that it is a private company, it takes away a lot of stress from the bottom line to just "make money." Fidelity truly wants what is best for not only its customers, but its employees as well! Also, can't complain with some of the best benefits in the industry.

What I wish was different

I wish I had heard about this job earlier and that I could have prepared better for it. Specifically about the experience working there, I have no complaints or regrets whatsoever.

Advice

If you are in college or simply someone without much financial experience, I definitely recommend taking a few classes or simply doing personal research about financial products, language, legal information, etc. I say this because not only will it make your life easier, but you will truly slip right into the company with ease if you have a well-versed knowledge of the financial world. That being said, you definitely do not need to be an expert in finance by any means!

Customer Service Representative Intern

June - August 2021 • Salt Lake City, UT

What I liked

I liked how nice everyone was and how willing they were to help out the interns. I also enjoyed that we weren't just given busy work and were able to work on different projects that would help benefit the company.

What I wish was different

I wish they had more job opportunities at the SLC branch. The only entry-level job they had was a customer service rep and I was just not interested in that or the possible positions following it at all. The only reason I wasn't asked to come back was because I made it abundantly clear to my manager that I wouldn't be interested.

Advice

Make sure you're prepared to be bombarded with financial information in a short amount of time and be aware that this is a customer service job, meaning you'll be doing phone calls for a good chunk of your day after training's over. You do, however, get to work on a project, so I would also recommend taking it seriously because the higher-ups will take your advice into consideration.

Corporate Finance Intern

June - August 2021 • Smithfield, RI

What I liked

I really appreciate the wide range of tasks I was assigned during the internship. I believe it broadened my knowledge about finance and the specializations within it.

What I wish was different

I would prefer the start date to be later than June 1st as it was very close to my final exam.

Advice

Network a lot during the internship within your division and in others areas of interest.

Customer Service Representative

Stock Broker

June 2021 • Salt Lake City, UT

What I liked

I loved getting the series 7 and 63. Fidelity paid me during the licensing process and paid for the test fees and registration fees for all the states+territories

What I wish was different

It was mostly online due to Covid. It was great bonding with my coworkers but I wish it wasn’t a Covid year and more could have been experienced first hand in person. It’s a lot of information really fast so you must stay on top of it. It will dominate your summer to get licensed but it’s worth it

Advice

Getting those licenses is hard. But once you pass fidelity takes great care of you. Great pay, bonus, schedule flexibility, benefits like 401k match, HSA contribution, insurances, mental health care, PTO, education benefits

Investment Analyst Intern

June - August 2021 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I enjoyed the people and the culture at Fidelity. They truly wanted to help me succeed and show me what they did everyday for the company.

What I wish was different

I wish I had not been on a trading desk. I also wish they had given me more information about opportunities within the company after college.

Advice

Try to understand what the role is within the company before you take it. Additionally, if there is a role that you want to pursue, try to talk to people within the company to find out more about it and make connections.

I loved that Fidelity Investment is constantly working towards incorporating more Diversity and Inclusion. It is not perfect, but their devotion to creating these spaces and improving opportunities for marginalized groups is incredibly admirable.

What I wish was different

Definitely less capstone projects.

Advice

Network, network, network. If there is someone that you want to mentor you or that you are interested in getting to know, do not be afraid to connect. Everyone is literally just a message away!

Don’t be scared to bring your ideas to the table, you could be thinking of something that no one ever thought of before. If you are there, know you are qualified and you have something to offer. Move with confidence.
