WASHINGTON, PA (Aug. 1, 2014)—Washington & Jefferson College (W&J) senior economics major Valerie Dunlap has spent the summer in Germany as a finance intern at Kennametal, Inc., which is headquartered in her hometown.

“出生和来自世界肯纳总部设在宾夕法尼亚州拉特罗布市,不远处升起,这是相当了不起的,看看有什么显著的世界存在一个基于本地的企业了。我不仅获得实践经验,而且也一直在学习和不断增长的个人,”她说。

“我知道,这是为了进一步发展自己的知识和技能,在经济学和德国等领域的正确的地方。在企业与个人联系网络,并提交我的简历后,我提供了一个电话采访肯纳金属公司欧洲分部的CFO,然后又与肯纳共享服务公司,位于菲尔特,德国通用会计经理。第二次面试完全是在德国进行,这是本次采访的是我提供他们的各种金融部门的实习后,”她补充说。

邓拉普已经花时间在每个以下三个部门的工作是处理肯纳金属公司的财务状况:总账,财务,规划和报告。作为金融实习生,她说她已经积累了丰富的实践经验的在一个领域中,她希望有一天上班。同时,她说,实习的经验使她在金融探索各种就业机会,而在经济学和德国的学业汇集作为一个主要的。

“Overall, this has been an amazing experience. Working with individuals from various European countries has taught me so much about different cultures and I would like to emphasize how well my W&J education has prepared me for this global experience,” she said.

Dunlap said it was not until her sophomore year at W&J when she “fell in love with economics.” Her connection to the German language and culture can be traced back to the early 1800s, when her great-great-great grandfather came to America and settled in Pennsylvania. This connection to her family heritage drove her to begin studying German in seventh grade, and soon after a deep interest in the language and culture developed, which continues today, she said.

“W&J has given me the ability to explore my interests in two very different disciplines, and it is through the Magellan Award that I hope to utilize, connect, and expand my knowledge of both economics and German by completing a finance internship and conducting independent research on German currency in Germany,” she said.

大学毕业后,邓拉普计划读研,继续她的研究经济学。姑且,她想专注于可以是公共预算和财政或国际金融。

“Independently researching the German economy while simultaneously gaining work experience at a world-renowned firm will provide me with invaluable knowledge for my upcoming graduate studies,” Dunlap said. “Additionally, coupled with W&J’s reputation of academic prestige, the successful completion of this Magellan-funded internship will punctuate my abilities as an independent thinker, as well as a determined and creative individual. Someday in the future, I also hope to have a career which allows me to travel to Germany for business. This internship with Kennametal is the perfect stepping stone that will help me to reach my future goals.”

A proprietary offering for W&J students, the College’s Magellan Project, established in 2008, provides scholarship funding for students to spend the summer months pursuing independent projects and internships that extend liberal arts learning outside the classroom.
