I’m Zoey Kang (T’19), majoring in Visual and Media Studies with certificates in Markets and Management and Arts of the Moving Image, and although it’s less than an hour out from my hometown, I’m officially “studying away” in New York City. There’s an intimately small (yet growing!) number of Duke students who go into the arts and media industries, and one member of the group taught me a useful term.
Nearing the half way point of my ten-week summer internship at Wells Fargo Advisors out of Charlotte, North Carolina, I reflect on the wealth of knowledge I have accumulated this far. The first two weeks of training, including daily speakers, online modules, intern phone calls, and a week in the St. Louis home office, introduced me and my fellow interns to the business of financial advising as well as to Wells Fargo & Co. as a company.
