Question: How does PIN help career-oriented members find meaningful opportunities? Is this relevant to first year undergraduates? - Anonymous

Yes, everyone at Penn especially first years are welcome! We have many training, mentorship, and career opportunities to welcome new undergrad members from the Class of 2026 and all graduate members. In fact, some current sophomore PINners completed very meaningful internships this past summer at globally reputable financial services institutions with ESG products focus! 

PIN intends to help career-oriented members connect with global majors in the finance and tech space in the most rewarding way possible. How? Through direct sponsorship of activities, mentorship, and training modules that are only offered by PIN sponsors to PIN members. While other internship or job opportunities may state "juniors-only or sophomore-and-above", PIN sponsors are global majors who value ideas, innovation, and demonstrated interest over graduation year as the elements of talent. 

After all, the ESG and profitable social innovation space was never originated by talented minds prefaced by the label a graduation year.
