Intern

May - August 2021 • South Barrington, IL

What I liked

From day one, the staff were incredibly welcoming. The financial planning profession spans 7 different disciplines and whether I had a question about qualified retirement plans, insurance policies, or rebalancing client portfolios there was always a staff member willing to teach me something new. Mark La Spisa, managing advisor and president of VFA, especially made a positive impact on my experience through his constant positive feedback on how to improve my work ethic and the quality of the work I produce. 10/10 experience that I would recommend to any finance focused student.

Advice

If you get the chance to become a summer intern for VFA, I highly recommend coming in with an open mind, a pad of paper, and a pen because you are going to learn an immense amount of information about financial planning and personal development.
