It’s not often you get a chance to work with a company that’s been challenging the conventions of the industry for over 40 years. But that’s what you could be doing next summer! 

Schwab’s reason to be is to help our clients create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities. It’s summed up in our tag line: ‘own your tomorrow’, and it permeates everything we do. 

Schwab Intern Academy is our centrally managed summer internship program for juniors/rising seniors and graduate students. The design of the program invites interns to engage directly in Schwab’s culture of service while challenging themselves through a structured blend of learning programs, team-building activities, networking opportunities, and enriching work projects. Features of our Summer 2015 Program include: 

Business Track Project: real work with a Schwab organization that provides a meaningful and valuable experience to translate classroom learning into a real business project (see below for more details) 
Intern Cohort Project: opportunity to partner with other interns to brainstorm and present solutions together 
Training & Learning Activities: structured and facilitated classroom training, team discussions and events, individual assessments and activities, mentorship and senior leader meetings, and on-the-job training 
Feedback Loop: regular feedback from your manager and mentor, career-related discussions, and feedback from you, too 
Ghosting/Shadowing: sit side-by-side with Schwab professionals who serve our clients to get first-hand experience of our business and our focus on clients 

As a Schwab Intern, you will have the opportunity to gain support from the interaction with professionals across Schwab, including senior leaders, in addition to a dedicated mentor.. Schwab is a ‘strengths-based’ organization and during your internship you will learn about yourself and how to apply your unique strengths, abilities, and goals to the work you do with us and beyond. 

Schwab evaluates intern candidates with one objective approach. We look for students with the following characteristics: 

Optimism and curiosity, who are inspired by a keen sense of purpose, awareness and knowledge 
Adaptability and flexibility, who enjoy working through cross-functional partnerships and collaboration to achieve a common purpose 
An innovative and questioning mindset, who constantly look for better ways to do things 

Because interns are considered a primary pipeline for full time opportunities, every intern candidate must be eligible for full time hiring upon graduation and must also meet the following requirements: 

Enrolled in a current undergraduate or graduate program tracking to a bachelors or masters degree 
Planned graduation between December 2015 and May/June 2016 
Ability to work full time and on-site at Schwab during the 9-week program, from June 15 to August 14 
Specific skills as needed by Business Track (see below) 

Recognized as an industry leader, Schwab’s welcoming culture will embrace your individuality and partner you with other like-minded and solution-focused students. We will invest in your summer experience by providing you direction and leadership for a robust and well-rounded internship as well as a focus on a potential future career with Schwab. 

Please Note: For the Summer Internship 2014 Program there will be multiple Business Tracks and we encourage you to apply for all Tracks for which you are qualified and interested. Regardless of which Track you pursue, our goal is to provide each intern with a consistent and unique experience; an experience you won’t soon forget!
