Annual Summer Internship Program

2015 Summer Internship Program

To help build the pipeline for the next generation of leaders, Beneficial State Bank and Foundation are proud to offer an intensive summer internship program which provides valuable work and learning experience to high-caliber students interested in beneficial banking, community economic development and responsible financial services. Through this 8-week program – with tracks for both collegiate and MBA students – interns will work on challenging projects and complete deliverables designed to contribute to the intern’s educational and career development. Under the direction and mentorship of bank staff, each intern will complete a capstone project and present their findings to the senior leadership team and the entire staff at the end of the program.  In the past, students have spearheaded research projects on a variety of topics, developed marketing materials and strategies, evaluated loan and credit pipelines, assessed data to help Beneficial State demonstrate our triple-bottom-line mission, assisted in the conceptualization, execution and strategy of new bank products, and helped strengthen community partnerships, among other projects.

To supplement the learning experience, interns gain additional exposure to community and socially-responsible banking through the weekly "Beneficial Banking" Curriculum & Speaker Series. Led by experts in the fields of community banking, investing, and responsible finance, these workshops provide exposure to the challenges confronted by professionals in the industry and may include site visits for interns to see the work in action. Past interns have both joined the Beneficial State team after graduation and leveraged their rich internship experience into careers in financial services and a variety of industries.
