Read about scholar athlete, Annie Beresheim ’19 and her career advice to current Davidson College students.
Annie Beresheim, previously part of the Davidson College Women’s Lacrosse team, just graduated from Davidson in May 2019, and was recently hired at BlackRock . Annie offered great advice meant to help current students prepare for life after Davidson. While Annie offered specific advice in regards to BlackRock, this advice can be applied to careers in other industries as well.
“I am thrilled to start my career at BlackRock! I interned with BlackRock last summer and then received a full-time offer after that. I would offer the following advice to students that are interested in applying-
- Reach out to anyone on DCAN that works for or has worked for BlackRock. Learn about the culture and the company and make connections with people that you could potentially be working with.
- Learn about the different groups. Do your research so that you know what groups sound interesting to you and which positions you are most qualified for.
- I think that each individual can apply to up to three groups. If you do not get selected for one of the positions but believe you had a strong interview, do not hesitate to reach out to your interviewer to ask what you can do better on your other interviews. This is a helpful way to make a connection with someone at the firm in addition to learning how to improve on future interviews. Not many people do this and it is definitely something that interviewers remember and respect.
- Make sure that you are on top of your deadlines and information sessions. Especially fall of junior year!”
