Internship Opportunity – Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston’s Internship Program has been a great success for over 30 years. We anticipate that the 2010 Summer Internship Program will be no different! It runs from May 31, 2010 to August 20, 2010. Positions are full time and are offered in a variety of professions within the Bank.
As an intern, you will support the day-to-day operations of a project or department. Interns are given “real work” that will give you a realistic sense of the work involved in a particular area or position. You will experience real-world challenges that go beyond what you have learned in the classroom.
You will meet and team with all sorts of people – some like you and some quite different. In addition to on-the-job learning, you will also have the opportunity to participate in career-development related classroom training opportunities and utilize a comprehensive library of over 1,700 on-line training courses to strengthen your professional skills and knowledge.
Your work will be measurable and realistic, and will allow you to stretch your abilities. To give you practice interacting with managers and demonstrating your business acumen, you’ll present a summary of your project work to managers and the other interns at the end of the program.
We look for candidates who successfully manage strong academics with extracurricular activities. In addition, we look for individuals with the following skills:
- Strong verbal, written and interpersonal communication skills
- Analytical skills
- Detail orientation
- Ability to work in a team-based environment
- Competency in Microsoft Office
- Professionalism, dependability, integrity
