Testimonials from previous interns:
starting my BB summer internship soon at a top group and I have to thank WSO for it. If you have the opportunity, it is one of the best things you can do with your time. " - Michael (WSO Blogging & Content Intern)Interning for WSO has been one of the best experiences I've had so far. Coming from a non-target, both reading and interning for this site has given me great insight into everything finance. Not only that, but the company has a great reputation and it was a tremendous help having WSO on my resume. A lot of people in the interviews said how cool it was that I worked there and one of the interviewers was even in the same graduating class as Patrick! I'll be
Having WSO on my resume has been awesome. People always respond super positively to the fact that I write on the site and it's a great conversation topic." - Leon WSO Blogger
Writing for WSO has been an invaluable experience with getting started in the industry. This role gets asked about at every interview, and helps show genuine interest in finance. You will learn how to attract and engage viewers, which is key to be taken seriously as any professional. In addition, speaking about WSO with my peers out of my network has always been helpful to establish a common ground. I've made it into the industry now and I couldn't have done it without the (in)tangible benefits that came with it. Many thanks to Andy and Patrick for guiding me along the way. -Mark, WSO Blogger
WSO is a living, breathing feed of information coming from the Wall Street workforce.

Working for WSO was being a part of that feed, even if it was temporary." -RSLA - Writing Intern
PWM firm, small accounting shop, and a very reputable PE group. Were all three a long shot? Absolutely. "Why would they hire me…" --WSO Intern Summer 2015This site has given me so much, and now that I have extra time being home for the Holidays, I wanted to share and express my utmost gratitude to WSO. Just having "Wall Street Oasis" on my resume as a 'rising' sophomore made my cold-emails a tad warmer. I reached out for roughly two months (June/July) to land anything. I didn't care where/what I would be doing. In the meantime I started rigorously studying and reading the guides: behavioral, technical and networking. By the end of July I narrowed down on three places: a
I joined the WSO internship as I really needed to add value to my resume in any way possible, plus I figured it would be a solid EC since I had planned applying to a FT MSF. Just before submitting my application, I interviewed and landed my current role as a credit risk associate at a major US bank. My WSO internship was pivotal, as it served as a major discussion point throughout my interviews, demonstrating my interest in finance despite a liberal arts background."
