Student Spotlight: Savannah Josey ’23

Human Resources Analytics Intern at Fidelity Investments

Savannah standing smiling Major: Business Analytics

Minor: Spanish

Internship responsibilities:

  • Built comprehensive dashboards that increase the efficiency, quality, demographic understanding, and overall satisfaction of services offered to Fidelity employees
  • Analyzed qualitative and quantitative datasets using Excel and Tableau, built SQL queries, and streamlined cross-department data in preparation for automating visualizations that would inform the department’s strategy for internal career mobility services
  • Presented recommendations to senior managers using data visualization and descriptive analytics related to enhancing internal clients’ career satisfaction across all business units in Fidelity Investments

What I enjoyed most about the experience: My manager was incredibly supportive and helped me to connect with people from all business units in Fidelity to enhance my ability to effectively complete my project and to gain insight into how it would benefit the firm. I was constantly learning from other people, and I loved how supported I felt when exploring my curiosities to build the best final project.

Advice for students seeking employment: Be honest about what you’re passionate and good at. My responsibilities would have looked incredibly different if I hadn’t told my manager at the beginning of the summer about what I was learning in my field of study and what excited me. I was able to provide more value than either of us could have anticipated because we were honest with each other. In other words, be your own biggest advocate. Other people don’t know what you’re capable of if you don’t advocate for your skill sets and ability to grow into bigger projects.
