summer of success
Eighteen college students from six partner institutions of the Central Corridor Anchor Partnership completed teller internships at various Wells Fargo branches in mid-August. Students consistently reported a positive experience and appreciated the opportunity to build professional confidence and learn about financial services career opportunities.
Students from Metropolitan State University, Minneapolis College, Saint Paul College, Augsburg University, University of St. Thomas and St. Catherine University participated in the program and attended a celebration luncheon on August 7.
Making professional strides
Andrea Merkle, Wells Fargo program manager, thanked all of the participating partners and noted that the interns gained not only work experience but professional development training, workshops, and volunteer service in the community.
Joe Ravens, Region Bank President for Wells Fargo’s Eastern Minnesota/Western Wisconsin region, was the luncheon’s keynote speaker. He urged students to be curious in seeking out professional growth opportunities, to stay connected with people they come to know in their growing networks, and to be committed to their own success.
