What aspects of Bulldog Investment Company have prepared you for the “real world” and How did it help you obtain a job?
During 2011, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be part of Bulldog Investment Company. The most valuable assets of Bulldog Investment Company are its own people, the team members that exhibit the organizational values, and promote a positive team environment. While there, I gain a lot of experience in Value Investing field. My position there allowed me to explore different fields of Financial Analysis cycle especially analyzing companies per Buffett’s criteria. Starting from little exposure on preparing Financial Statements and researching for different project to presenting and competing as finial part of the project. In these projects I have worked and learned each and every day new things that I never learned before. The usage of different tools, translating financial outcomes and specifications into final decision, team collaboration and meeting the deadlines has been challenging and yet rewarding. It was really important for me to be able to take place in these projects, prepare them and lastly be able to present them in front of others. This experience makes huge difference on my future. Furthermore, the opportunities to meet different famous business leaders such as Mr. Jackman, the opportunity to attend Berkshire Hathaway shareholder annual meeting as well as meet countless other important people that may serve you as key professional connections in your near future.
