Read what our past CCCF Fellows have to say about their experiences in the program.
“The CCCF program opened the door for my dream job and I received it. I'm so excited to start it soon, learn new skills and be a part of an amazing team. Thank you for all of your team help and support.”
“Without this program, I would not have been able to get an internship, become Bloomberg and Microsoft Excel certified, as well as attend numerous workshops where I have made professional connections. This program has readied me for my life after college, and has played a crucial part in my successes”
“I want to express my sincere gratitude for the generosity of the Clearing Corporation Charitable Foundation, and my honor in being selected as a CCCF Fellow. The result of this gift has been tremendous for the professional development of myself and that of my peers. Since our selection as fellows, we have had the opportunity to participate in several workshops designed to improve professional development skills. The interview and elevator pitch workshops were helpful in the continued improvement of communication skills and the ability to market oneself. My favorite workshops were the Microsoft Excel workshops, which provided necessary skills which were especially useful with my internship with the Department of the Treasury."
“Since joining CCCF I have completed my first internship with the Treasury Management Association of Chicago…..just yesterday I was a recipient of the Financial Executives International scholarship, which now has me networking with CFO’s and VP’s all across the Chicagoland. I honestly believe none of these things would have happened if it not were for you all”
“It has been an amazing learning experience so far. During this program I have received my certification on Bloomberg terminals as well gained more experience utilizing excel from the various workshops that this program has to offer. I am also excited to tell you I met my current mentor during the inauguration ceremony and she has placed me at my internship working for the Treasury Management Association of Chicago. I am very pleased with this program and doors it has opened for myself since I have transferred to Roosevelt. Once again this has been an amazing opportunity and Thank you……”
