“In this internship at Blackmore, I learned a lot about the PE world, which I still have a lot to learn. Improved my communication skills with other interns (learned how to motivate a team) and the partners, executives, and outside the company contacts. For me, the appreciation of the hard work and what I contributed to the team and BMP, in general, was the most motivated. I think anyone who is interested in an internship like this, need to be committed, have good communication, be detail-oriented and have an outgoing personality to interact with high-level executives or capital providers”.

“What I really enjoyed about the internship was learning about private equity and attending the various networking events within the industry. To succeed in this internship was having a self-starter mentality and have a passion for finance. I recommend this internship to my colleagues because working in private equity is a rare occurrence for most. Working in PE straight out of college is a spectacular opportunity. The internship gave me a platform to jumpstart my career in finance”.

“Working at Blackmore has given me the opportunity to gain unparalleled knowledge about the investment banking and private equity world, and the various ways to analyze possible investments. Blackmore’s workplace presents a flat structure that facilitates communication between peers and management, making it transparent and comfortable. I particularly value the opportunity to work closely with my manager who has been an example of professionalism and a constant help throughout the learning process. He has always communicated deliverables in a transparent manner while showing me his willingness to teach me the intricacies of each deal and investment opportunities.

“This internship helped me gain my confidence when I had lost it. I feel like I am more comfortable with people and learning new things. The most satisfying thing during this internship was the routine that I got into. I enjoyed having set tasks to complete and being able to check them off my to-do list. You have to be detail oriented to work for a place like BMP. Things change frequently and being able to adapt is very important. Good communication is also something that is required because each person is responsible for certain tasks or parts of a task and notifying other team members helps complete a project or sequence of tasks. I enjoyed working with the rest of the HR team “.

“My internship at Blackmore Partners is one of the most valuable experiences I have gained. Before this internship, I had little idea about the financial industry. At Blackmore Partners, I was able to work with senior associates on live deals, as well as performing meaningful company and industry research and due diligence work. As a boutique private equity firm, Blackmore provides a very steep learning curve for its interns. I gained solid research, financial analysis and modeling skills during the internship. Blackmore also organizes networking events with other PE funds and senior executives, which is one of the most exciting events an intern can participate in. Having Blackmore Partner’s internship on my resume, I was able to get into London Business School and land an offer in investment banking.”
