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

What I liked most about Bulldog was the willingness except free flowing ideas. As a member of Bulldog, I found ideas were crucial to developing an investment thesis.

Why should current students participate in Bulldog Investment Company?

Current students should participate in Bulldog because it's provides the most "real world" experience available in a academic setting. You need to bring your "A Game" every Friday afternoon if you want to hang with the pack! 

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

Two things pertaining to real world preparation and Bulldog. I learned how to be an effective presenter and demonstrate resilience. 45min presentations aren't for the weary - one must be ready to pitch an idea at all times. Resilience was developed by losing a couple presentations and having fortitude to get back up and develop, present and support another idea. 

How did Bulldog Investment Company help you obtain a job?

Bulldog helped me obtain a job by using and demonstrating financial analysis and industry knowledge while interviewing. It didn't hurt to interject that we ran with the big boys at Texas Investment Symposium. 

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

I would recommend Bulldog demand a written summary from every team member detailing strengths, weaknesses, and solutions for every investment. Writing is very important in finance and we didn't do much of that in Bulldog.
