Over 40 seniors participated in the 2016-17 Senior Internship Program and gained invaluable experience. Here, two members of the Class of 2017 share theirs:
Caroline Greeley interned in the Cardiac Unit at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, where her daily routine began with a 7:00am meeting in the Cardiac ICU. At the meetings Caroline observed doctors and staff review patient updates from the overnight nursing staff, then the executive members of the Cardiac Unit as they conducted their daily briefing. She would then meet with nurse practitioners to go over notes and do rounds. Caroline had the opportunity to observe a variety of heart surgeries and the post-op treatment of those patients. At 5:30 Caroline would leave the hospital to head home and do the work she missed at RBC that day. Caroline is very grateful to Jersey Shore University Medical Center and especially to the doctors, nurses and staff in the Cardiac Unit for giving her this invaluable experience. She will attend the University of Notre Dame in the fall where she plans to major in pre-med.
Ryan Decker‘s internship experience was with the Newport Capital Group, a national financial firm headquartered in Red Bank. Ryan realized his interest in this internship earlier in the school year when the founder and president of Newport Capital Group, Mr. Domenic Dipiero (RBC ’90) came back to RBC to give a presentation to students interested in majoring in finance in college. He spoke about his journey from being a Casey to being the founder and president of his own company. Ryan was so impressed with Mr. Dipiero’s presentation he knew that this internship was for him. The experience was everything Ryan hoped it would be. He got his first actual exposure to the world of finance and learned about the operations of Newport Capital in particular. Ryan learned a great deal from the project team he helped doing work relating to ESG (environmental, social and government) investing and says will pursue a career in finance at Arizona or Alabama University this fall.
