If you are interested in Wall Street, Investment Banking, or Finance careers we have an IMPORTANT UPDATE: You may be aware through Bridge postings and your network that several Investment Banking firms are already launching their 2019 Summer Internship applications. This timeline is much earlier than previous years. Applications are due as early at April 2018 and offers will be made on a rolling basis. Candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible as recruitment will close once the programs are full.
This early application process means your internship documents (finance resume and cover letter), targeted area of interest, and network of advocates willing to support you at their firms, must be ready to go shortly.
If you have not yet attended the CDC’s Finance “Jump Start Your Career On Wall Street” Program, the last opportunity for this day long workshop this semester is Sunday, February 25 from 10am-4pm. The program is an introduction to careers in investment banking and covers the variety of roles and functions across the industry. It is a first step for many in defining investment related career paths that might best suit you. Go to the Bridge for more details and reserve your spot before the deadline: Tuesday, February 20th.
If you have already participated in the Finance Jump Start Program or other Finance Education programs with Kathe Kennedy, CDC Finance Specialist, we strongly encourage you to attend a Wall Street Lunch & Learn program to help prepare you for the competitive internship recruitment process. Wall Street Lunch & Learns will be held Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 12 – 12:50 pm starting February 27th and continuing through March. These Lunch & Learn programs will help you refine your resume, build your network, and review the competitive interview process, specifically in investment related fields. Check the Bridge for details and to reserve your spot for one of the Finance Lunch and Learns ASAP!
We are here to support you through this process and strongly encourage to make time to attend these finance education events.
