What did you like best about your time in Bulldog Investment Company?
What I like most about BIC was learning about all that goes into looking at company to invest in. It's more than just which soda brand you like most. In fact, that sense of emotional constancy has helped greatly in my job.
What did you like least about your time in Bulldog Investment Company?
My least favorite part of BIC was the research aspect. At times I felt left out and just given a task instead of being a part of the group.
Why should current students participate in Bulldog Investment Company?
Current students should participate in BIC because even if you aren't a finance or accounting major, you will have speak in front of groups. You will have to work as a team. You will work with people who aren't your favorites. When you get a career and are offered a retirement plan that includes investments it is helpful to have some idea what company's look like and how to read their financials-even if you don't know what each and every line means.
What aspects of Bulldog Investment Company helped you obtain a job or entry into graduate school?
While BIC hasn't directly gotten me into grad school or my job, there are important things I learned that I apply daily.
1) If you're going to make a claim-stick with it!! The confidence in your tone takes you so far!! Whether speaking to clients, students or friends.
2) Working in a team is a part of life. Few careers allow you to work in a bubble. At some point you will do it. Practice the people/research skills now-they will come in handy!
If you had all the power in the world to change anything about Bulldog Investment Company - what would it be?
If I could change anything about BIC I would make it mandatory that all students take the class for credit. You learn so much about working with others and personal investments.
