2014 Summer Internship - Marketing TrackBookmark This
San Francisco, CA
It’s not often you get a chance to work with a company that’s been challenging the conventions of the industry for over 40 years. But that’s what you could be doing next summer!
Schwab’s reason to be is to help our clients create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities. It’s summed up in our tag line: ‘own your tomorrow’, and it permeates everything we do.
As a Schwab Intern, you will have the opportunity to gain support from the interaction with professionals across Schwab, including senior leaders, in addition to a dedicated mentor. Schwab is a ‘strengths-based’ organization and during your internship you will learn about yourself and how to apply your unique strengths, abilities, and goals to the work you do with us and beyond.
Schwab evaluates intern candidates with one objective approach. We look for students with the following characteristics:
* Optimism and curiosity, who are inspired by a keen sense of purpose, awareness and knowledge
* Adaptability and flexibility, who enjoy working through cross-functional partnerships and collaboration to achieve a common purpose
* An innovative and questioning mindset, who constantly look for better ways to do things
Because interns are considered a primary pipeline for full time opportunities, every intern candidate must meet the following requirements:
* Enrolled in a Ph. D. or MS program in statistics, mathematics, operations research, econometrics, finance, computer science, engineering or similar quantitative field
* Strong SAS skills and experience
Recognized as an industry leader, Schwab’s welcoming culture will embrace your individuality and partner you with other like-minded and solution-focused students. We will invest in your summer experience by providing you direction and leadership for a robust and well-rounded internship as well as a focus on a potential future career with Schwab.
