Caroline Weatherill '16SM Excels as a Sales Intern at a Top Bank in NYC

Caroline Weatherill, '16SM, always knew she wanted to further her education and attain her MBA. After graduating from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, in 2011, Weatherill worked as an admissions counselor for three years. Finally, she decided it was time for a change of scenery. 

“My mom and aunts all attended Mount Holyoke, so I grew up having a strong connection and appreciation for all-women’s institutions. Simmons was the first school I applied to, so when they accepted me, I cancelled my applications at the other schools and decided Simmons was the place for me,” says Weatherill. 

Weatherill is currently a full-time MBA candidate in the School of Management. She leveraged her skills learned in her first year of grad school and landed an internship at Bank of America in New York City. As a Sales Performance Consultant Intern, Weatherill supports the sales performance team, ensuring that financial centers meet their monthly sales goals. The main project she is concentrated on connects Bank of America with colleges and universities across the county, allowing them to learn more about students' banking needs. “My favorite part about my work is that it is a great transition from my background in higher education, as a college admissions counselor, to banking. I know many people at the colleges I work with. It is exciting and comforting to have that similarity,” says Weatherill. 

Her internship will ultimately lead to a two-year leadership development program at Bank of America, which places interns in general management or sales management roles. As an intern, Weatherill is encouraged to network with many people from different departments to learn more about the company and its opportunities. 

“After graduating from Eckerd, I knew I wanted a job working directly with people and preferably a job that let me travel, but I didn't have a specific company or field in mind,” says Weatherill. “While consumer banking wasn’t something I had originally thought I’d be interested in, it encompasses many of the areas I am looking for in a career.”
