We are seeking enthusiastic self-starters to be part of the Undergraduate Summer Internship Program in our Boston office. The program is paid, full-time (40 hours/week) that spans between 10-12 weeks during the summer with a start date of June 2021.
The interns will work within our new, global Investment Services and Technology (InvesTech) division. Interns will develop the foundation to become successful in a career in financial operations and technology. Interns will be exposed to technologies and processes used and applied in the financial services sector – specifically in asset management. Opportunities exist for those interested in analysis, data, software engineering, operations, and business.
There are four primary components to the InvesTech summer internship experience: (1) group intern project, (2) getting to know our firm, (3) immersion into the world of InvesTech and (4) mentorship and feedback:
1. Group intern project
InvesTech interns will work as a cohort on a group project throughout the summer. This project will be based on a real problem that needs to be solved. The end goal of the project is to create a real, broadly used application and/or process improvement that will be utilized throughout the firm. During the project, interns will gain hands-on experience and each intern will have the opportunity to lead part of the project. At the end of the summer, the interns will deliver the final solution to a group of senior leaders. Projects will change every year based on new problems and new technologies.
2. Getting to know our firm
Through a series of interactive lunch and learns, interns will learn from seasoned professionals about various departments and functions within the company. Interns will have the opportunity to attend multiple social networking events with senior leaders. These opportunities, among others, will allow interns to build their network and discover what makes the culture at Wellington so unique.
3. Immersion into the world of InvesTech
Interns will develop and deepen their analytical and technological skillset throughout the summer. Subject matter experts will conduct trainings throughout the summer on internal applications and programs such as Python and Tableau. These trainings will help to develop the skills required for the internship, and a potential career in operations, technology, and investment management. Interns will also have the opportunity to shadow technology professionals as they work hand-in-hand with business partners to solve problems.
4. Mentorship and feedback
Summer interns are paired one-on-one with a mentor who is dedicated to their learning and growth. Interns will also have the opportunity to interact and collaborate with other seasoned professionals on a daily basis. Interns will receive consistent formal and informal coaching and feedback from their peers, mentors and managers. Wellington is a supportive and highly collaborative environment where everyone is invested in each other’s and the team’s success.
