We are pleased to announce Harlem Capital’s 2018 Fall Intern Cohort.
This is our third intern class and we feel very honored to have had 15 interns to date join the HCP family. Our additional teammates have enabled us to scale exponentially faster and they challenge us in new ways. Often times we forget that an internship is a two way street, but it is a humbling experience for us as a team. The continued interest from such high caliber diverse talent is inspiring, as there is no greater validation than talented individuals wanting to join our mission.
This particular intern class is unique in that 5 of the 6 are graduate or undergraduate students, compared to just 1 of the previous 9 interns. The students come from Harvard Business School, NYU Stern, Duke Fuqua and the University of Michigan. Their experiences range from finance to consulting to marketing.
For this intern cohort, selected applicants were chosen from a pool of over 200 applications, 25% of which were women and 34% non black and latino. From the 200 applicants, we narrowed it down to just 30 candidates for the first round, 15 for the second round and 10 for the final round with an Investment Presentation. Ultimately, a total of 6 new interns were chosen as a result of the process. Please join us in welcoming them.
