#HIRED: Urja Risal ‘20

This summer, Urja has been accepted to the prestigious Girls Who Invest program, and will complete a 4-week educational intensive at University of Notre Dame. She will then complete a 6-week paid, hands-on internship at Pacific Investment Management Company in Newport Beach, California.

“I strongly believe that it is important to know about investment in order to make a large-scale positive impact in our societies. Having the opportunity to learn about asset management with other hard-working passionate women excites me.

My advice to other CC students searching for opportunities would be to feel confident about reaching out to people working in the field of your interest. It is surprising how willing people are to help you and to give meaningful advice to you!”

Congratulations, Urja! We’re proud of you!
