Meg Recktenwald

MS Career Consultant - Finance

Meg recently joined the Benet Career Center in 2019 as an MS Career Consultant, partnering with Helen in the Finance program. With a background based entirely in corporate recruiting, both at the campus and experienced hire levels, she brings with her to Simon a wealth of experience to better assist students with all aspects of their career search.

Originally from Buffalo, NY, Meg’s experience at the University of Rochester began as one of the first students to graduate from the undergraduate business program in 2013. Highlights during her time at the U of R included playing Varsity Women’s Basketball (reaching the NCAA Final Four in 2010), and being a member of the first pledge class inducted into the co-ed business fraternity (Alpha Kappa Psi) on campus.

After graduation, Meg joined Goldman Sachs in NYC as lead MBA campus recruiter for their Investment Banking Division, responsible for hiring over 75 summer associates each year. She later transitioned to experienced hire recruiting, supporting efforts for Investment Banking, Internal Audit, and the build-out of the new Retail Deposits business across all levels. In 2016, Meg left Goldman Sachs to join Bank of America as a VP in Wealth Management recruiting, leading efforts for the Financial Advisor Program across NYC and Western NY, and later led the campus program for all of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management nationwide just prior to joining Simon.
