Emily Abraham 
(Franklin Award Recipient)
Major: Accounting
Internship: Auditor, Deloitte & Touche, Pittsburgh, PA

My internship enabled me to work at a Big Four accounting firm while still in school. As part of my internship, I assisted several client engagement teams with different auditing procedures. I completed the tasks of a first-year staff member – from tie-outs of financial statements for large public companies to account testing for private and not-for-profit entities – throughout my internship. By working with different teams, I was able to network with a majority of the auditing department at Deloitte, as well as learn about different industries and clients that Deloitte serves in its Pittsburgh office. In addition to the experience and knowledge that I obtained throughout my internship, I was extended a full-time position with Deloitte at the end of the ten week program. I will begin as a first-year staff member after graduation!


Dylan Haas
(Franklin Award Recipient)
Major: Economics
Internship: Intern, Private Wealth Management at UBS Financial Services, New York, NY

This experience was developed through the W&J alumni network, and specifically Mr. Bill Platt, Trustee of the college. My daily tasks included stock analysis and the creation of portfolio allocation models. Additionally, I interacted with clients to provide market data and recent stock prices. The internship enabled me to enhance my work experiences and skills, as well as, expand my professional network. I gained valuable technical and soft skills which would have been impossible to acquire, without the W&J alumni network, Career Services, and the Franklin Scholarship.

Alex Sossi
(Franklin Award Recipient)
Major: English
Internship: Professional Writing Intern, Main Street Market, Washington, PA

This summer I was the professional writing intern at the Main Street Market in Washington, PA. I was the author of the Market's newsletter, which was sent out every week, and I also interviewed many of the vendors about their specific farms or businesses and how they originally became interested in their chosen career. Last summer, I had researched many different markets and farms in Europe, so this summer I used my past research to see how these different market systems compared.
