Put your best foot forward
Panthers on Wall Street cohorts are trained in the functional skills Wall Street firms seek. Each student attends lectures on the legal and ethical environment of business and “Wall Street speak” (what it’s like to work on Wall Street). Students participate in team building exercises, get specific guidance on resume building, and practice their meeting etiquette by visiting Atlanta-based financial institutions. They are required to earn Bloomberg certification and complete a Microsoft Excel course as well.
Build a stepping stone
About 20-25 percent of students who have made the trip are currently working for leading firms in New York City. Panthers on Wall Street also has helped many students secure full-time jobs or internships with companies in Atlanta such as JPMorgan Chase & Co., PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG, Deloitte, Google, Wells Fargo and more.
