KeyBank Summer Intern and Analyst Experiences

Risk Review Group

Article 1

My first impression of KeyBank was that Key is comprised of people that enjoy what they do and who they work with, which is an experience I aspire to have during my internship. Key employees have been so welcoming to me during my orientation, which has been really encouraging and provided me with a strong start to my summer at Key.

In the first few weeks of my internship, I have been fortunate to meet with some executive leaders at Key. I have met individuals that lead departments across the bank, including Corporate Strategy, Investor Relations, Corporate Responsibility, and Consumer Payments and Digital Banking. These individuals have encouraged me to network, ask a lot of questions, and to be true to myself, even while at work. These interactions were great, especially in knowing that I had encouragement to ask questions and develop professional relationships throughout my future at Key.

In addition to meeting Key executives, I also spent time volunteering with my fellow interns at a local grade school. Key employees actively participate in community service, which is something I’m not sure most businesses can say.

Throughout the rest of my summer internship at Key, I hope to become familiarized with the line-of-business my internship takes place in. I am in the Risk Review Group, which is an area you really aren’t taught about in college classes, so I expect to learn a lot in that regard. Networking is another goal I hope to accomplish. I would like to increase my networking skills as I meet more members of Key, in addition to other interns. I am hoping after this internship experience at Key, I will gain a stronger sense of what direction I want to take professionally after college.

I am looking forward to the upcoming weeks and excited to share more about summer internship at KeyBank!

Article 1

Before my summer internship at Key kicked off, I was unaware of how large the company really was, and how many states across the country the bank was active in. Having listened to many speakers and interacted with many other interns since my internship began, I now have a better sense of just how big Key’s footprint is. One of the main factors that initially attracted me to Key is the culture. Everyone in my office – at all levels – is willing to help me out with almost anything. It really is great to be able to get that kind of mentorship at my level.

My goal for this internship is to be a sponge from the first day to the last day. I want to absorb everything I can, since almost everything my manager gives me is new information to me. More specifically, I hope to gain a better sense of the business landscape, learn the technical aspects of valuation and modelling, and understand what it takes to succeed in this industry.

I have been able to meet with many high-level executives during my first few weeks. These leaders have been mentors to me, providing me with great advice for my internship and professional career. One piece of advice that stood out was to work hard and stay hungry. I believe that regardless of how easy or tough your work may be your attitude towards work reflects the quality of your output. During my summer internship, I’m excited to wake up every day and know that I’ll be learning something I didn’t know the previous day.

Credit Risk Management

Article 1

In my first few weeks at KeyBank, one thing I noticed immediately was the amount of effort everyone puts into their work and helping one another. Employees are approachable and do their best to answer every question I have. When my coworkers are unfamiliar with a subject I ask about, they see it as an opportunity to learn alongside me and help me find the information I need.

Coming into my internship with limited banking experience, my main goal for the summer is to gain a better understanding of various credit principles and the technical skills necessary to work in the banking industry. Everyone’s willingness to go above and beyond for both my development and their own has been really encouraging.

Another goal I have for this summer is to expand my professional network. I have already had the chance to meet Commercial Credit Executive Randy Riffle, as well as the Senior Credit Officers and Underwriting Team Leads at Key’s West Credit Campus. They have all stressed that I will get out of this program what I put into it, and that I should never hesitate to ask senior employees if I can shadow them for a day if I am interested in their specific roles. These opportunities will enable me to achieve a broader understanding of KeyBank’s operations and find the particular position I might like to fill in the company one day.

Working in business banking has given me a unique vantage point of Key’s involvement in Greater Seattle Area and the Pacific Northwest. We handle a lot of deals with local companies that I get to see from start to finish. Also, the KeyBank name has a significant presence here with sponsorships like the KeyArena. I am happy to be a part of an organization that seeks to be embedded and impactful in the communities it operates in.

I am excited to see what the upcoming weeks of my KeyBank internship will be like!

Article 1

Coming into University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business, I had no clear cut path of what I wanted to do. I knew my skill set – I’m great at math and quantitative analysis. Finance seemed to be the most logical choice: it could play to my strengths, and take me down a variety of career paths. As I progressed through my coursework, I found myself enjoying the more investment-based finance classes. Through a program organized by Terry, I was matched with a recent graduate to mentor me through the job hunting and interviewing process.

In my days at Terry, I was very active in an organization called Women in Business. Even within this organization, I was the only female Finance major. The lack of women in banking and finance always astounded me, and I wanted to help change it. Beth Mooney, as a powerful woman in banking, initially piqued my interest in Key.

The opportunity for development – both personally and professionally – is what brought me to Key and what brought me to Cleveland. Pushing myself outside the comfort zone of Atlanta into a new environment drove my desire to be successful and to make a name for myself on my own. I would not have come so far if I didn’t believe it would be worth it. Sometimes it’s important to take that leap of faith.

Surprisingly, before work even began, I knew I had made the right choice. The people that I met in the interviewing and onboarding process solidified my decision to come to Key. Within a month or so, Key had delivered all it had promised in a corporate culture: I was given a peer mentor – someone who had been in my shoes and could give me meaningful advice, community involvement – we spent a team building day at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, and a transparent process – program managers who kept me informed every step of the way. And within two weeks on the desk, I was in meetings with C-suite executives. I’ve been on the desk for nine months now, and I don’t regret a single day.

My biggest challenge thus far in my career was deciding what I wanted to do within KeyBanc Capital Markets. I had no direct work experience, and nothing to draw from to guide my decision. And when you pin that against my peers, many of whom had interned with KBCM, I was at a disadvantage. The Analyst training program introduced me to a lot of people who had been in my shoes, and that were ready and willing to give advice. I networked endlessly, and by chance, met two portfolio managers who would later become my bosses.

Something simple that I have integrated into my daily routine is listening to Bloomberg while getting ready in the morning. In addition to keeping me in the loop on business news, it has helped frame my thought processes and economic acumen.

Finally, if you’re just starting out: read, read, read! Read about the industry you want to go into, read the news, read anything.
