Dennis Berdecia III
Hey guys! My name is Dennis Berdecia III and I am double majoring in Financial Economics and Mathematical Science. Fleishman is the first job I got as a freshman and I have loved it since. Now, I am excited to be working as a Senior Peer Consultant this semester. Alongside Fleishman, I am also an RA in Mountainview! It is great to have jobs where you get to meet new people, make great friends, and help so many along the way. Along with my degrees, I plan on leveraging my experience to acquire a job on Wall St. after graduation. Luckily, through hard work I was able to secure an internship at an investment bank this coming summer and plan to do the same in my third year. More experience the better! In the meantime, I do a lot of hobbies on the side. I’m really into gaming, reading (almost 90 books a year), I play guitar, card tricks, and am really into investing. Now, I am just really excited to see where this journey takes me. Who knows what comes next in my professional development?! But, I do know I’ll have Fleishman helping me along the way!
