The overall objective of the Iowa Bankers Internship Program is to provide the student intern with a wide range of learning opportunities and work related banking experiences during their period of employment with an Iowa bank. The end result should be directed at the student returning back to campus with a positive impression of their banking internship experience and the strong desire to pursue a career in banking upon graduation.
This internship experience might include opportunities for the student to learn and/or gain work experiences in banking operations, agricultural lending, financial auditing requirements, bank teller operations, customer deposit options and regulations, loan spreadsheet analysis, loan documentation, financial trend analysis, bank marketing strategies, customer promotions, and/or bank customer relations. In some instances the student may be assigned to work on a special project (s) for the bank. Available learning opportunities will vary depending on the bank.
The Iowa Banker Student Internship will be a period of 10 to 12 weeks.
The starting date will be decided upon between the student and the host bank.
The student will be required to work a minimum of 30 hours per week at a recommended wage rate of $10 per hour.
The bank is not responsible to the student intern for the payment of benefits and/or insurance costs during the summer internship period. There is no obligation for the host bank to make an offer of future employment to the student at the end of the internship period.
Please send a cover letter with the name of the City in which you would prefer to complete your internship.
