I am looking for a few good summer interns.

I run the summer internship program, here at II, in the conferences and memberships division, and have done for 7 years! Usually, I have too many applicants, but this year, I have space for 3 more.

If you know of a college student who has completed their sophomore year, and may wish to spend 8 weeks with us this summer learning about the asset management business, please have them send me their resume and I will contact them for an interview.

Overview of the Internship program:

June 9 – August 4, 2017

1)      Education – each week, interns will attend at least one educational session per week to learn about various aspects of the institutional asset management business.

2)      Training – interns will gain a broad array of experience so that they may better realize what they are good at.

3)      Mentorship – each intern will be assigned a departmental mentor based on the intern’s area of interest.

4)      Self-assessment – at the conclusion of the program, each intern will write a brief essay that summarizes all the projects they completed and what they learned.
