Summer internships are typically 10 to 12 weeks, and co-operative education opportunities can last up to one year. Both experiences involve paid, on-site work during which a student completes tasks or a project designed to give a broad understanding of a business or occupational area. Only college sophomores, juniors, seniors or graduate students may apply, and students must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average. Preferred candidates combine academic achievement with strong interpersonal and communication skills.
The majority of our summer internship positions are posted in mid-November and close in mid-February, with interviews and offers extended between March and April. Depending on business needs, additional internship opportunities may be available at other times during the year. Start dates for summer interns begin as early as May, with most interns starting by early June.
The Richmond Fed creates a positive experience for our interns through a program that includes opportunities to interact with management and to develop a range of skills needed to succeed in business. Managers supervise day-to-day work and mentors offer career insights and teach how basic skills relate to success.
