Stillman School of Business continues to launch students into
successful careers. Glen Shaw, class of 2013, recently accepted a full
time position as a rotating analyst in a two year Financial Development
Program at CIT Group Inc. He will switch roles every six months within
the Chief Financial Officer's Organization.
His first role was in the Treasury working in "Legal Entity
Strategy," a group responsible for managing subsidiaries and the
corporate structure. His primary duty was the opening of new entities,
dissolution of entities, and the analysis around these actions.
Glen is now moving into his second rotation within CIT's Vendor
Finance Business, a group that provides equipment leasing and financing
options to corporations who would not traditionally be able to provide
that to customers. His goal is "to learn as much possible to bring the
perspective of a controller to my future roles".
Glen took full advantage of a unique set of internship and employment
experiences. As a Sophomore, he interned at Prudential in Newark, NJ
as the liaison between operations and the systems development teams .
This was followed by an internship with ACA Compliance, where he worked
with the analyst team to help consultants with client issues, primarily
the regulatory side of financial services. Lastly, Glen interned at JP
Morgan in Wilmington, DE, working in Risk Analytics in the Corporate
Analyst Development Program.
These experiences were extremely helpful in determining Glen’s career
direction. "There is no other way to learn what you like and do not
like without getting out there and trying it. The last thing you want
to do is spend money for the degree and find out in your full time role
that you don’t enjoy the work in field of study you chose." Glen was
also very active in career-related student activities, which served him
well throughout his college career.
"All of my experiences were invaluable – I learned more in on campus
organizations and internships than I did in the classroom. Don’t wait
for someone to come up to you, tap you on the shoulder, and give you
opportunities. You need to get out there and take them for yourself."
