Michael Bunting

(2023, FIN Major)

Why did you pick your major and what’s your dream job?

  • I love being able to help individuals and businesses have the capital necessary to achieve their goals. My dream job is to become a commercial lender at a major financial institution.

What advice do you have for Pamplin students? 

  • I highly recommend getting involved in clubs that you are interested in and passionate about including the many great clubs that Pamplin has to offer.

Where have you interned, what did you do, and how was your experience? 

  • In the summer of 2021, I had the chance to participate in Belk’s Sophomore Spree where I was able to shadow both accounting and finance professionals. My favorite part of this opportunity was the case study which let me step outside my comfort zone working with a cross-functional team consisting of business majors from various specialties and design majors.

What is your favorite part about being a peer advisor? 

  • Helping my fellow Hokies reach their goals.
