It is hard to believe but there are only two weeks left in my internship. However, work shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. For one, the M&A deal that I have been working on all summer is closing this Wednesday. This is exciting because I have never seen a deal close before, so it will undoubtedly be a great learning experience. On top of this, I was recently staffed on another project that will be very time consuming for the remainder of the summer. After eating lunch with a Managing Director who went to Michigan, he asked two other interns and I to help him in performing a valuation of one of Jefferies’ most valuable clients. Most interns are never given the opportunity to build financial models or perform valuations, so I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity. There is no doubt that the Michigan network is very powerful. I cannot wait to do more on this project over the next two weeks and wrap up my internship!
