The Best Summer Internship Tips on WSO

Another compilation post by my content intern @Lucas_M, we hope you find these helpful!

IBD Internship Experience by @moneymogul
Here is a series of 4 posts by @moneymogul where he shared his IBD internship experience.

Week 1 of IBD Internship: Training
posted by @moneymogul

In summary, training day is all about introductions and first impressions. Your HR program managers will be in attendance, and you should take a few seconds out of the multiple intersessions to shake their hands.

Equally important is taking the time to meet the other interns around you. If you attend a non-target school, this is the opportunity to plug yourself into the clique of elite institutions and its future Wall Streeters.

New WSO Blogging Internship!

We are looking for several talented student writers to contribute posts to WSO with the goal of raising the level of quality to our forums and homepage.

Internship title: Finance / Wall Street Blogger Intern

Timeline We ask that you commit to post either 24 shorter discussion style posts or 12 blog style posts (or a combination of the two) over a period of 12-16 weeks.

How this differs from our Contributing Blogger Program: This internship is geared more towards students and recent grads. Obviously you have less experience than professionals to draw on for your posts so we're looking for more of a discussion starter style of post. More specifically we want you to research and post up a hot topic relevant to WSO's audience, summarize and/or quote your source, briefly state your opinion, and then open it up for discussion. You will go through the same training that the bloggers go through (instruction doc, videos, short quiz, test post and then afterwards we will set up a phone call to discuss the internship more in detail.

What you will write on:: Hot topics in the financial/business/Wall Street news and other topics relevant to WSO. There is a list of suggested topics you can choose from but if there is a topic of interest you would prefer to write on we are open to hearing your ideas.

Click inside the post for more information, examples, testimonials, and to formally apply.
