Student Spotlight: Tate Dahlgren ’23

headshot of Tate DahlgrenInternship: International Tax Intern at Deloitte

Major: Accounting

Minors: Economics and Finance

Internship responsibilities: “The projects I have been working on have been centered around compliance work, as it is international tax’s busy season over the summer. Therefore, I have mostly been doing tax returns over the past few weeks for the six clients I am staffed on. Additionally, Deloitte has a campus/training facility in Westlake, Texas (right outside of Dallas), which we traveled to during the internship! This was mainly for networking and professional training, and it was a great time.”

What I enjoyed most about the experience: “I have been having a great experience so far, mostly because of the people I work with and the fact that I have been able to go into the office five days a week, with the option of working from home Monday and Friday.”

Student Spotlight: Xuan Huynh ’24

Major: Finance

Minor: Women, Gender & Sexualities Studies

Internship responsibilities: “I worked within the Retail Channel Optimization group and my summer focus was building a Branch Dashboard in TIBCO Spotfire. The dashboard provides a summary of how a selected branch is performing across 70 key performance indicators. It serves as a tool in discussions related to branch optimization, which refers to analyzing the bank’s branch footprint and identifying potential locations to conduct denovos (openings), consolidations (closes), or 2-in-1 combinations.”

What I enjoyed most about the experience: “Not only was I able to improve my technical skills this summer, but I learned a considerable amount about the banking industry. My supervisor and employee who I worked closely with regularly set aside time to check-in and chat about my work and the bank. The work environment at FNB is inviting, and I appreciate how comfortable I felt asking questions and contributing to meetings.”

Advice for students seeking an internship: “The internship search can be overwhelming. Worry less about finding the perfect internship and focus on getting your foot in the door somewhere and networking. If you are unsure about which career path you want to follow, prioritize learning more about topics that interest you. I cannot emphasize enough how great case competitions are. They are opportunities to experiment in different fields and make for strong talking points in interviews. I also recommend reaching out to alumni, students, and faculty whose work interests you. Meet with them and take notes. Be sure to follow up with a personalized thank you note that shows active listening.”
