InvestmentBank.com is currently offering both a summer internship program and competitive scholarship to students interested in pursuing careers in investment banking. As Nate Nead, Director of InvestmentBank.com, emphasizes, “At Investmentbank.com, supporting and mentoring new talent is something we take very seriously. Our summer internship program and scholarship are just two of the many steps we have taken to support this part of our mandate.”
InvestmentBank.com’s Summer Internship Program
With opportunities to work in any of the firm’s offices, which includes offices in New York, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Atlanta, Boston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Los Vegas and San Francisco, InvestmentBank.com’s internship program is a nationwide initiative designed to find and support outstanding undergraduate and graduate students hoping to enter the investment banking profession. “We wanted to develop a robust, value-added program,” says Nead, “For this reason, interns are given eight to ten weeks of extensive training on corporate valuation, deal origination, pitch deck creation, merger negotiation, capital raising and M&A management. We’re not just introducing them to potential scenarios—our interns are given an opportunity to learn while supporting actual high-stakes deals with our firm’s expert advisors.”
In addition to InvestmentBank.com’s onsite program, the firm offers a flex internship for students whose time or location limits their ability to work onsite in one of the firm’s locations. “This is part of our attempt to ensure that our internship program is both robust and truly accessible to young people across the nation, regardless of their location or circumstances,” says Nead.
Interns with a finance and accounting background are always welcome, but these skills are not required; an ability to work with numbers and a basic working knowledge of Microsoft Excel is required. Additional information and an online application form appear on the InvestmentBank.com website: http://investmentbank.com/internships/
