Marist College Center for Career Services staff members traveled to Wall Street on April 27 with 11 Marist students to visit with four alums who are employed at Deutsche Bank. The Career Trip was the third and final one of the Spring 2018 semester.

Marist students on the trip were pursuing degrees ranging from Finance to International Business to English. The group arrived to the Wall Street location of the investment bank for a morning that included a panel discussion and other networking opportunities.

The panel included Vice President of Electronic Trading Mike Lavin ’09, Assistant Vice President Brendan Maguire ’05, COO of Liquidity Risk Management Andres Oranges ’06 and Vice President of Compliance Anthony Pelliccia ’96. Alongside the panel, Deutsche Bank recruiters Nicole Peway and Harry Seaborn provided advice on how to craft a noticeable job or internship application with the company.

The alumni spoke to the students about their journey to Deutsche Bank as well as other jobs and internships they had worked in the financial services industry. They emphasized the importance of a thorough resume and cover letter and discussed appropriate digital and in-person networking techniques. Students later had the opportunity to speak with alums one-on-one or in a small group setting.
