What did you like least about your time in Bulldog Investment Company?


Why should current students participate in Bulldog Investment Company?

I think it’s beneficial for any student to participate in such an internship as Bulldog Investment Company.  You learn a lot about different matters; you definitely become aware and learn a lot about what is going on in the world economically and financially, and above all you get a good eye on identifying good companies from bad ones, which is a useful skill no matter what major you are in. Putting your energy in this internship is worthwhile and pays off in your future endeavors. You will be more prepared and more knowledgeable when going into the real world. 

What aspects of Bulldog Investment Company prepared you for the “real world?”

In Bulldog Investment Company you learn a lot about the real world. Not only does the content discussed during the meetings teach you so much about what is going on around you, but you also greatly develop your presentation and team working skills. Since Bulldog involves working in teams, you learn to work better with others and become a team player, which is a skill that all organizations are looking for in their potential employees.

How did Bulldog Investment Company help you obtain a job?

During Bulldog, I became more comfortable presenting myself and communicating more freely during presentations. In addition, I learned a lot more about the business world. There is no doubt that having this internship experience on my resume, as a Computer Science major, impressed the interviewers during my job interviews and gave me a better chance to obtain my job. I'm sure not many other applicants had such a great internship experience.

If you had all the power in the world to change anything about Bulldog Investment Company—what would it be?

That's a tough question. I think a top priority is to invest in more effective marketing of Bulldog at TLU to recruit more students. Perhaps getting in touch with other investment internships at other schools and planning more of some sort of competitions and joint events.
