Internship Program

Led by Michell Jay, the HWA internship program helps students and recent college grads gain hands on career experience.  The HWA internship program is designed to provide an alternative to the mainstream work experience from traditional employers. Because HWA values education and giving back to the community, HWA gives interns the tools they need to learn, grow, become uniquely marketable, and be prepared for the workforce.



Meet our Interns!



Nima Fatemi, Planning Intern


"To say that I simply interned at Harvest Wealth Advisors would be to belittle everything that I have learned. Not only have I transformed myself into a new person, but I have also learned new ideas and a wealth of information that is simply not accessible in a classroom. Interning at HWA also aided me in becoming more professional and provided me with opportunities I only could have dreamed of! I owe a lot to HWA and hope to give back some day." - Nima Fatemi


Nima is a third year Mathematics/Statistics and Economics combined major at the beautiful University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. He is extremely interested in finance and economics and hopes to pursue financial planning or economics research in graduate school.

"Interning at Harvest Wealth Advisors has been a true blessing, because I never thought that I would have the opportunity to experience an internship before I graduate this upcoming spring semester.  HWA will definitely open more doorways after I graduate and will lead me to a successful future to come.  Every day I come in with an open mind, ready and eager to learn. This great experience has given me the chance to apply the knowledge obtained from my academics, as well as what I’ve been taught from HWA, and to demonstrate them professionally through daily tasks and interaction with clients." - Crystal Samala

Kevin Conrad, Planning Intern

"Being an intern at HWA was an amazing experience for building my skills in
business, finance, and customer service. I learned a lot from Jayson and many
of the lessons and skills I learned while in my internship have come in handy in
all areas of my professional and academic life. I learned and acquired
skills that you often do not get while having other big corporate internships.
The environment was flexible and full of learning. I would recommend anyone to
intern with Harvest Wealth." - Kevin Conrad

Aliaksandr Chouzhyk, Investment Management Intern

"I started my internship with Harvest Wealth Advisors in February 2013, the same
month I joined MBA program at Sac State. And to be honest, I enjoined working on
HWA’s projects way more than on school ones. The more I was learning about how
to analyze the economy and current market conditions in order to create portfolios,
the more I was realizing how little I knew about the world of finance. I really
appreciated that Jayson and Jeremy took their time guiding my brother and me
through our project, and sharing their experience. My passion to work in the
investment field is substantially strengthened due to the entire internship."                              - Aliaksandr Chouzhyk
