My first 3 weeks at SiriusXM is completed, and I absolutely love it. The environment is friendly, my mentor is extremely helpful, and I am learning a large amount about corporate finance along with the responsibilities that accompany it.
Currently, I am helping the senior financial analyst with renewals and appraisals of contracts with our selected partners, which is pretty cool. I have never seen these types of contracts before, but being able to constructively take them apart one by one and find specific key words that are helpful feels really good. I am also getting better with excel everyday, and being able to apply the skills I’m learning in my business classes is something I’ve never been able to do hands-on before.
As for the rest of the SiriusXM faculty, they could not be friendlier. There is this very nice security lady who goes out of her way to say hi to me everyday, and the cafeteria staff contain some of the nicest people I have ever met. There is still much of the internship to go, so I am looking forward to getting to know more of these great people.
There is one incredible feeling that I can’t shake every time I walk into the office, and it is the fact that famous artists across several generations walked the halls of this facility at one point. Their signatures are everywhere, the recording studio looks like it came straight out of a movie, and the live talk shows are happening as soon as I walk in every single day. As a huge music fanatic, it has been a dream working at SiriusXM thus far.
