“It was always a dream of mine to work overseas in finance. Coming to Sydney and working with one of the leading financial planners was amazing. I learned so much about the mortgage industry and how to generate new business and clients. I worked side-by-side with the owner of the company and attended important meetings in the field. It could not have been better.”
Our clients have worked with a stock market guru in the Empire State Building, New York City; conducted research for a mortgage broker in Sydney; and used their French while working for a financial planner in Paris.
Our finance internships feature top companies that are leaders in their fields. We work with mid-size firms that provide our students hands-on, high-responsibility work. The goal for our financial internships is to give students an idea of what the field entails and how to run a small to mid-size business. We hope to plan the seed of entrepreneurship so you can chart a course to be your own boss someday.
Job duties focus on analyzing financial data to determine the best course of action for the company and its clients. This may entail a review of the mortgage industry, interest rates, long and short-term projections etc.
Accompanying the staff in meetings and going into the field to speak with clients is an important part of the learning process. You will see how clients are handled from start to finish and learn what people are looking for in a financial advisor.
We likewise have placements with larger organizations that need help with their own in-house finances. For example, we have placed finance students with top rugby leagues in New Zealand to assist their financial officer. Meeting the players and seeing how the league is run from a financial perspective is a great opportunity.
