First-generation American Robert Camejo is pursuing the American Dream with gusto! He will soon graduate with two bachelor’s degrees, both in rigorous programs, and a job offer that comes on the heels of five internships. His USF career also includes memberships in several organizations, participation in collegiate competitions and a slew of service activities.
Camejo was selected – one of few juniors – for the highly competitive Applied Securities Analysis program, which manages the college’s $1 million Student Managed Investment Fund. His analytical skills and team spirit led faculty to select him for USF’s team competing in the CFA Ethics Challenge, where students analyze a case that contains a variety of ethical dilemmas. The USF team placed highly in the competition.
In solo competition, Camejo won the 2021 Elevator Contest, a one-minute competition where students are challenged to sell themselves to area hiring managers.
As a sophomore, he landed a highly competitive internship at Merrill Lynch’s wealth management and financial planning division. As a junior, he headed to Chicago to intern at LaSalle, a global real estate firm. During his senior year, he interned for two companies, a mergers and acquisitions firm, Benchmark, and a boutique investment bank, Crosstree. After graduation, he will join Crosstree as an investment banking analyst.
His community involvement includes membership in the USF Student Investment Club, business fraternity Delta Sigma Pi and the Corporate Mentor Program. Camejo volunteers with Junior Achievement, Academy Prep, and has participated in single-day projects benefitting Metropolitan Ministries and Feeding Tampa Bay.
