With her summer internship at Merrill Lynch in Dallas, Texas, Alcorn State University senior Myquis Levels-Morgan is getting a head start on her career in finance.
Myquis is gaining valuable information about the finance industry as the company’s financial advisor intern. The business administration major’s internship started Monday, June 6 and will continue until Friday, August 12.
The Sacramento, California native is proud of being one of a select few to earn the internship through the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), of which she is the program’s ambassador at the University.
“It feels really great to be an intern at Merrill Lynch because I found out that I am one of only six percent of applicants who were chosen for the financial advisor internship,” said Myquis. “Merrill Lynch is one of Forbes’ Top 25 companies. Now that I have this opportunity, I’m going to make the most of my time here. It feels great to represent TMCF because I’m fully invested in the program. My being chosen for the internship as a result of being involved with TMCF will show people who are interested in joining the program its benefits.”
So far, Myquis enjoys the hands-on work environment that Merrill Lynch provides.
“I like how they don’t feel the need to oversee everything. We’re given the chance to show our abilities without constant oversight.”
