Pietro Carillo is rising fast, having been accepted to serve as an operations summer analyst at Goldman Sachs in Salt Lake City during the summer of 2019. Though his future is unbound, he ties his success to everyone who believes and supports him. All he has, he said, is because of the support of all the people around him, and for that he forever will be grateful.
Carillo will graduate in May 2020 with a degree in finance and business analytics and information systems. He came to the United States from Brazil when he was 18 years old. Then, he barely spoke English and took courses at Hillsborough Community College to get acclimated to the culture and to the Tampa Bay community. He was an active member of the Phi Beta Lambda Business Club and was part of a team that placed second in the financial services category in the 2016 Phi Beta Lambda national competition and first in the emerging business issues category in the 2017 state competition. He also has volunteered for Junior Achievement.
At USF, Carillo was awarded a Latin American and Caribbean Scholarship. He hasn’t forgotten his roots and was the vice president of fundraising for the Brazilian Student Association, a club with about 100 active members. There, he organized social events to engage students and raise funds for the organization.
He serves as a tutor in statistics and calculus and interned twice at the Brasil Plural Bank, once as an asset management analyst and was part of the team that managed more than $1 billion, and a second time as an investment banking analyst, participating in debt restructuring and joint-venture projects.
