“Through Verittas, I’ve had the opportunity to work (with) clients in New York, Maryland, and Los Angeles. This has given me a great idea of the kind of attention and travel that goes into working for a national professional services firm like Verittas. This kind of experience while I am still in college could not be more helpful as I continue to further my career in financial services. In addition, multiple times during my internship I was brought along for meetings with bank executives, and just being able to sit in on those meetings is extremely beneficial for me. I’ve learned so much from these types of opportunities.”
