During this 10-week program, Summer Junior Associates are placed directly into one of the following sector teams: Commodities, Consumers, Energy & Utilities, Financials, Health Care, Industrials, Materials, Media, Strategy, Telecommunication or Technology. The placements are made based on demand, the skill set of the candidate, and candidate preference.
The Summer Junior Associate Program begins with a training and development curriculum that will equip you with the fundamental and professional skills that you need in order to be successful in Equity Research. After 5 days of training, Summer Junior Associates spend the program within a specific industry group, building a strong foundation in the basic skills of financial analysis, accounting, and valuation.
Equity Research is the best place to start a career in finance, in my view. You learn the hard skills of analyzing financial statements and building models, along with soft skills like developing a thesis and communicating it to the smart clients you interact with every day.
