This summer, I will be in Cleveland until August 10 doing a 10 week internship at KeyBank as an Quantitative Risk Management Intern. To be fair, I’m not really sure what exactly I’m doing. So far, I’ve only received a fairly vague description of the job, but tasks? No idea.
It’s only been two days of the internship, but orientation from 8-5 has been really draining. I can see other interns falling asleep during the numerous orientation lectures. So far, I do like it here. My roommates have been great and we all get along extremely well. I can definitely see myself having a really fun time with them for the next 10 weeks.
I am nervous about my job though. I’m the only quant intern doing credit portfolio analysis, so no other intern to really talk to, I guess. I think with the mentorship I’ll be getting, I should be fine. I really hope my actual work will be something I enjoy doing!
Besides work, I’ve explored the city with my roommates and another friend. Notably, I really enjoy checking new food places and cafes.
Sandwiches: Herbs ‘N Twine – got the turkey sandwich and it was delicious (~$10)
Cafe: Duck Rabbit Coffee – affogato, which is ice cream in espresso (~$5)
Desserts: Mitchell’s Ice Cream – mint chocolate ice cream (~$3.75 for one big scoop)
I highly recommend these places if you are in the area! Definitely will check out more cafes in the coming weeks!
