Step 2

Once the application is submitted, you will be notified by Headquarters if you have been selected to move past the first round. 

If selected, you will be paired up with potential mentors who will conduct phone interviews with you. There will be 2 phone interviews. 

 
 

Step 3 

If selected to move past the phone interview round, you will be notified to interview with someone from Headquarters in-person. 

These in-person interviews should last no longer than 30 minutes. After your interview, you will be notified by March 31, 2017 at the latest for the pending status of your potential fellowship.

WHAT DOES REDEFINE HER STREET MEAN TO YOU?


"Redefine Her Street (RHS) has made the single biggest impact throughout my entire college career. Redefine Her Street is not simply a club or organization, but a group of women, who ceaselessly encouage and inspire me. The women, who I have met through Redefine Her Street, have invigorated me with their passion and helped me discover my own larger purpose to advance women's rights and how I can do so through a role in finance."

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO AS A FINANCE FELLOW?

 

Prior to RHS, I had never been exposed to or truly understood finance before. I had always believed finance was a field that only a select few had access to. RHS and the Finance Fellows Program are demonstrating to women that it is not a closed off field. This program is then providing the amzaing resources and support to help women succeed. I am so honored to be a 2017 Finance Fellow and am ever more excited to have a community of similarly ambitious women alongside me as we work to make galss shattering breakthroughs for liberal arts women in finance!

WHAT DOES REDEFINE HER STREET MEAN TO YOU?

 

"Redefine Her Street definitely has impacted my life so far. The organization's goals of promoting women in the finance world is truly inspirational and extremely important. Organizations like this are what make it possible for women to enter such a male dominated field, and without the ability for women to work together to break these barriers, the gender divide may be even larger. Redefine Her Street also is the perfect organization for a liberal arts college. Liberal arts schools, like Swarthmore, don' have the same resources as large universities thus making it much more difficult to enter the finance world. With groups like Redefine Her Street, it offers unique opportunities for me to gain resources that I thought I would have to sacrifice in deciding to get a more well rounded experience at Swarthmore."

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO AS A FINANCE FELLOW?

 

"I truly love the overall idea of the Finance Fellows Program, and I believe it will be a truly unique experience. I'm very excited to be a part of it, and I hope to learn a great deal of information about the career path I wish to pursue. I also am looking forward to having a mentor that has actual industry experience in the field I am interested in. Not many organization offer an opportunity like this so I hope to gain meaningful knowledge and make connections to help me enter such a competitive field. I also am excited to have a junior mentor who has recently gone through the process I know is ahead of me. This will allow me to learn from their experiences and gain insight on how the interview process works, how to make a proper resume and cover letter, and what to expect when i'm actually in an interview."
