So long...

I cannot believe how fast time as flown. Today is my last day with my internship at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. How is this possible?! I guess it is true when they say, “Time flies when you are having fun!” I can honestly say that my experience with my internship is one that will stay with me for a long time. I am so thankful for this opportunity and have learned so much.

The best advice I have for college students is to find an internship in your area of work! Any kind of experience in the working place will bring so many benefits to you professionally. You are given opportunities to meet and learn from professionals and begin to create a network. It is amazing what you will learn about yourself in such a short time. I am excited to move forward as I will graduate in May and then begin to start my career.

I appreciate all of you reading all the tip and tricks to save money. Continue to read our blog through the summer as juniors and seniors from the University of Illinois share financial tips and advice from their personal college experiences.

I wish you all the best as you work towards becoming Money Smart!
