Melanie Posso

IFS Start Intern Summer 2020 @ PWC

When I saw the members in ALPFA who looked like me, spoke like me, and were from the same places as me getting internships and full-time opportunities in corporate America, it inspired me to work just as hard. ALPFA has a minority representation in Fortune 500 companies that do not make you feel like you’re incapable of achievements like them.

Audit & Assurance Intern Summer 2020 @ Deolitte

When I first was introduced to ALPFA I realized quickly that this was the platform that would help me grow professionally. Little did I know that ALPFA and the E-board members I am privileged to call friends would have a profound impact on my personal growth. Due to all of the events, professional development, industry exposure, and the family culture that ALPFA emanates are the reasons why my confidence to succeed in my career is at an all-time high. Thank you to the incredible team I have, and thank you to the organization that provides us with so much support. #ALPFAmilia

Launch Intern Summer 2020 @ EY

I transferred to Rutgers Business School towards the end of my sophomore year. Two weeks into the semester, I became an ALPFA member. I didn’t do it because of the amazing resources available to its members; I did it because I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to make friends. Not only did I make friends, but I also became a part of the ALPFAmilia. My favorite thing about ALPFA was how diverse AND inclusive the environment is. Later on, I decided to join the consulting committee, where I learned soft and analytical skills. Now I am on the 2020-2021 Executive Board! I also got an internship with EY through ALPFA for summer 2020 and was offered to return for summer 2021! This organization allowed me to pursue many opportunities, and I want the same for YOU.
