The 2016 University of Notre Dame men’s lacrosse season is in the rearview mirror—and serious on-field preparation for the 2017 campaign remains some months away.
In the meantime, as many college students are relaxing during their summer vacations, the seniors to be on the Irish squad are taking care of business—participating in summer internships from coast to coast.
“These are great chances for our players to gain real-world experience in the business world,” says Irish head coach Kevin Corrigan. “We are fortunate to have many of our alumni working in the financial sector and in other areas, many of them on the East Coast, and we’ve been able to tap into those corporate connections to help our current players identify these summertime opportunities.
“Many of these internships are off-shoots of our annual fall program in which we spend a day in New York City with our upperclassmen, meeting with some of our alumni who are working full-time in the business world. That has been a tremendous learning experience for our players and it gives them a great feel for what our alumni network comprises.”
Here’s where the Notre Dame rising seniors are spending their summers:
— Chris Carter (San Diego, Calif.) is a financial analyst summer intern for Microsoft in Seattle, Washington.
— Bobby Collins (Mahwah, N.J.) is a summer intern in sales and trading at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in New York City.
— P.J. Finley (Berwyn, Pa.) is a project management summer intern for Turner in Philadelphia.
— Pat Healy (Southborough, Mass.) is a summer intern in commercial real estate at Colliers International in Boston, Massachusetts.
— Nick Koshansky (Kings Park, N.Y.) is an audit intern at KPMG in New York City.
— Anthony Marini (Medford, N.J.) is a summer intern in investment baking for Jefferies in New York City.
— Sergio Perkovic (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) is a summer intern in sales and trading for Credit Suisse in New York City.
Carter is completing a second internship after spending last summer with Morgan Stanley private wealth management in San Diego. Collins worked last summer at Stryker Orthopedics in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Finley did the same with Modular Space Corporation accounting and finance in Berwyn, Pennsylvania. Marini served in the summer of 2015 with The Riverside Company private equity division in New York City. Perkovic spent his previous summer with Conway Mackenzie financial and management consulting in Chicago.
