Derrell Pate: Bank of America ATP graduate Derrell Pate is a recent graduate of the Applied Technology Program (ATP) at Bank of America (Charlotte, NC). It's a seventeen-month internship program that allows business and technology students from the University of North Carolina (UNC) Charlotte to work at the bank in their junior and senior years. At the end of the program, interns may be eligible for fulltime employment.
Pate grew up in the small town of Carthage, NC, two hours east of Charlotte. In high school, he was always interested in business and finance, and he had his eye on attending UNC Charlotte.
"Coming to Charlotte was a big change for me. The banking presence here is huge," he says. "I knew I wanted to work for a financial institution."
Pate was a business administration and finance major at UNC Charlotte. In his junior year, he learned about the internship at Bank of America. Concerned about being a good fit for the program, he supplemented his coursework with classes in management information systems. "I took enough computer classes that I could have created my own minor," he says with a smile.
The application process was intense, Pate recalls. He met separately with bank interviewers, who evaluated his technical skills, business integrity and behavioral characteristics. "It was worth it," he says. "At the end, you realize the value of all the work you put in."
Starting in the spring semester of his junior year, he worked part-time. In the summer his hours increased to forty and then went back to part-time in his senior year. By the beginning of his senior year, Pate was offered a full-time position after graduation.
"It was a huge relief," he says.

Pate graduated in June 2012 and joined Bank of America as a business analyst. He 's on a team of fourteen people who work in operations support, specifically on consumer web applications.
"We report on enhancements and work on defects," he notes. "We communicate with internal clients, work on resource management, evaluate the risk and impact of changes, and prioritize items for the development team. We prioritize what the business wants first, maybe new functionality or application layout."
Relationships are important to Pate. "The Applied Technology Program allowed me to meet business professionals I otherwise wouldn't have met," he says.
