Benefits Going Forward
Our program is based on creating a future path for students who have an interest in the financial services industry. For higher performing interns, the program can serve as a stepping stone to full-time positions upon graduation. This has happened at CCU for many departments, such as Technology, Human Resources, Sales, Marketing, Finance and Accounting.
You Can Be a Star!
Every year, in addition to their daily assignments, the CCU interns are tasked with a project. At the end of the summer, they present their project work to their department and the senior management team. Our supportive work environment and hands-on guidance gives CCU interns every opportunity to wow their audiences… it’s a wonderful feeling, a tremendous learning experience and a huge confidence boost!
Helping Others, Making Connections
Previous interns have volunteered at Feed My Starving Children and Adopt-A-Highway for community service experience and to increase their teamwork skills. They have also participated in networking events and educational meetings to connect with experienced business professionals.
