WSO Podcast


In this episode, Howie shares his story as an immigrant moving to the United States when he was 15 years old. Learn how he picked up English so fast, how he did so well in high school, how he became the first member in his family to attend college, how a back office internship at a bank opened his eyes to investment banking and how he ended up landing that first IB internship. We hear about how he converted the internship into a full-time offer and his risky approach that paid off during private equity recruiting.
