Spring 2017

Position: Lending and Administration Intern
Student: Economics Senior

Now that the semester is nearing an end, I have had the chance to look back on
my time spent at PeopleFund provide insight of my experience as an intern. My
schedule throughout the semester was 10am to 5pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and
Fridays, with an hour for lunch everyday. Although my position was specifically “Lending
and Administration” I voiced to my supervisor that I wanted the chance to work within
other departments, which she was perfectly fine with. Therefore I didn’t have a typical
schedule that was the same throughout my time. On one day I would be asked to
complete a file of insurance, I would input information on a program called nls and I
would check to make sure there aren’t any discrepancies with any of the clients
information. I would then scan the documents and upload them to the PeopleFund client
folders. But then the next day I would be helping in closing documents, where I would
look through some key information in the file and make sure that also doesn’t have any

There are also days when I go on client visits to visit the PeopleFund clients on
site and I would observe while the PeopleFund representative I was with conducts the
on-site visit. Those days are the most interesting since I get to see the businesses we
work with firsthand. All in all a typical day at PeopleFund is not overwhelming or too
demanding. You’re allowed the freedom to move at a very manageable pace, and still
learn a lot.
