Investment Employee Profile
Business Area: Principal Global Investors
Years at The Principal: 3 years
I began my career at The Principal as an intern and after working here for two summers I knew I didn’t want to look anywhere else. With a company the size of The Principal, I was confident I could find a position to match my skills. And, I did.
My first full-time position was as an investment accountant in our global asset management business. There, I was able to hone my accounting skills and prepare for my next move to a collateral review analyst. In this position, I review and analyze quarterly financial results as part a collateral review on all loan requests and manage regular inspections of our real estate properties.
Outside of my daily job responsibilities, I act as a business unit recruiter – attending college job fairs – to attract talent to our global asset management division. The never-ending chain of possibilities is what I love about The Principal. I can increase my business knowledge, participate in various company-sponsored activities and take advantage of a number of career paths, without ever leaving the company.
Besides that, I'm improving my leadership skills by mentoring an intern. Not only does that allow me to share my experiences as an intern, it's giving me a chance to learn, develop and prepare for my next career move.
