The finance department is committed to developing its students to be career-ready by the time they leave Providence College.

This unique boot camp is geared towards current sophomores with professional interests in investment banking, sales & trading, investment management, or private equity.

In a competitive job market and industry, it is important that you take all the steps possible to give yourself a competitive advantage. This boot camp will give you the tools you need to enter into the competitive interview process for “Wall Street” jobs. Interviews for these types of jobs follow a fairly predictable pattern based on a mix of behavioral, technical, and logic questions. To master the interview process you’ll:

  • Learn from industry veterans
  • Participate in intensive mock interviews
  • Engage with a panel discussion about networking and navigating the Wall Street recruitment process

By participating in this boot camp you will be well-equipped to apply for competitive internships and participate in the selective recruiting process for these jobs. Not only will you build an interview toolkit, but you’ll also be networking with industry leaders who can help launch your career.
