Resources

Key to both a strong stock pitch and a successful recruiting process is an in-depth knowledge of current events - specifically those impacting the financial markets. As students of Boston College, we are fortunate to have access to a number of important resources that industry professionals use on a daily basis. Familiarizing yourself with the content and use of these tools now will help you prepare for when you encounter these tools in a professional setting.  

 

We have split these resources into four main categories below. The first two will be most useful for potential stock pitches as well as interview preparation. The third includes the pitch template you must follow when presenting a stock pitch to BCIC and a suggested reading list should you want to broaden your knowledge of finance. Lastly, we have included a link to Handshake, the platform that Boston College uses for connecting students with prospective employers.
