Prudential students from Brazil, China, Japan, India, South Korea, and Taiwan gathered at the Prudential Washington, D.C. Office to meet with top-level officials.


Remarks from Chris Cooper, Chairman and CEO of Prudential International Investments, focused on the Prudential’s international presence while Rex Wackerle, Vice President Director of Prudential Financial’s D.C. office, spoke to the 20 students about working in the nation's capital and the importance of having a business presence in Washington.


The final speaker was Bryan Pickel, Vice President of International Government Affairs, who holds the distinction of being a Washington Center alumnus ('92).  Mr. Pickel shared his experience as an intern in D.C. and gave students  important tips on ways to maximize their time in D.C. and make their time here as successful as possible!


The event was well received by students who appreciated the time and support of these Prudential executives.


About TWC’s Partnership with Prudential Foundation


Three years ago, The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars (TWC), in conjunction with the Prudential Foundation, created the Prudential Global Citizens Program. This program provides students from countries all over Asia, including Japan, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, and India, with an opportunity to intern and live in Washington, D.C.  Each term, program participants get a chance to hear from some of Prudential’s top executives.
