Jordan Richardson

A summer internship at Data Reality as a business development intern introduced Jordan to a broad range of options in finance.

"Not only did I gain some valuable experience, but I made a lot of contacts in the community," said Jordan, a senior finance major. "It was exciting to work in a start-up company and see what they do, and the impact they have in the community."

As he begins looking for jobs, he has a better sense of what he would like to do—perhaps work in a venture capital company or in wealth management, he says. And through his recent internship and as a member of the IU South Bend Student Government, he has the connections inside and outside of school to assist him with his employment search.

Jordan is confident he will be able to find satisfying work after graduation. His biggest challenge today is deciding what cities he wants to target for his job search. In the meantime, he’s embracing his senior year at the Leighton School both in the classroom, and on campus through his student government activities.
