About Us

The West Virginia University Finance Club is a student-run organization to assist our undergraduate Finance students in understanding job opportunities available in the financial marketplace. We provide a forum to assist students in building interview and networking skills.

We are a professional club working in conjunction with the WVU Center for Career Development to assist in learning about and pursuing a career in Finance. In order to assist students in exploring career opportunities, we organize events over the course of the school year, which include:

  • Recruiting and social events.
  • Resume reviews and mock interviews.
  • Workshops on various financial topics and career panels specifically for finance careers.
  • Company-hosted seminars on finance-related topics (e.g., valuation, day in the life of a trader, how to succeed on Wall Street).
  • Trip to Investment Banks in New York City.

* Dates are still TBD - please contact an officer to get your name added to our email list.
