DWC is honored to announce its 2020 intern consultants as they complete their final stage of the DWC University Intern Program.
The program focuses on the basics of defined contribution and defined benefit plans, recordkeeping administration, compliance, and plan investments. "During my time as an intern with DWC, I've been able to witness how the realms of law and finance interact under ERISA. As a current law student with an interest in the financial industry, I've greatly enjoyed addressing plan violations and assisting with plan corrections," said Kori Dean, finance and law student at Suffolk University. "My time here has been informative and enjoyable, and I know that I will carry forth my experiences as I progress in the legal world."
About the Program
Each year DWC selects up to five candidates from resumes submitted by college students across the country. Intern alumni alma maters include Harvard University, Brown University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Minnesota, University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown University, Claremont McKenna, University of Notre Dame, Boston University, and Yale University. In fact, Ben Jones, a full-time consultant today with DWC, was in the first class of interns and worked with DWC every summer while completing his undergraduate degree at Brown University and graduate degree in Maritime Archaeology at University of Southampton.
“We want all interns to learn that you must perform at an A+ level on every work task with no exception,” explained DWC Managing Partner Keith Clark. “An A- is unacceptable. Teaching consultants that first impressions are lasting is another key concept, which must be demonstrated by showing up on time for every meeting as well as meeting all promises. Most importantly, we want all of our consultants to learn to respond quickly and accurately to all communications. This has been another great class.”
