Success Stories from the VBA Internship Program
This past summer, eight banks participated in the VBA Internship Program across the Commonwealth, hosting 21 students from 11 different colleges and universities. Based on the feedback we received from the interns at the end of the summer, 100 percent said that the internship made them more interested in the banking industry. We are also excited to share that four past participants of the program have recently been hired at the bank at which they interned!
Our program is a turnkey experience for banks who don’t currently have a formal internship program, and it provides resources to add enrichment and further exposure to the programs many banks already have in place. In addition to program templates and suggestions for engagement, the program includes training and networking opportunities for the interns. Students who participate in the program will be awarded a certificate of completion to add value to their experience and help build their resumes.
You can learn more about this program and complete a bank interest form here. Formal commitments will not be made until early 2019. We also invite you and/or the appropriate teammates to listen in on an informational conference call on November 15 at 10:00 a.m., where you can learn more about our program, hear from past participants and ask questions.
