Name: Vita Viran

Major: Finance and Marketing

Graduating: May 2020

Her hunt for an internship: Involved applying to more than 200 companies. She landed a summer internship at Wells Fargo after spotting the opportunity on the Rutgers Handshake app.

Full-time offer: Wells Fargo offered her a financial analyst position in its commercial banking division when her internship ended. After graduation, she moves to Charlotte, N.C., for training and then she will work from the bank’s offices in Northern New Jersey.

Proof of her resiliency: “I got disheartened for a while, but instead of being negative about what was happening, I used the advice and experiences from my interviews to make myself better.”

What she did during college: Joined Rutgers Undergraduate Women in Business, Rutgers Finance Society and the Marketing & Management Society. She also mentored a transfer student through Rutgers Undergraduate Connection.

Her advice: “Be diligent all through school. Continue to work toward a goal until you achieve it. And make sure to get all of the difficult classes out of the way before your last semester!”
