3 Reasons why your Company Needs a Future Graduate Summer Intern
Summer is almost here and sf.citi is proud to once again partner with the San Francisco Police Foundation to host Future Grads, a summer internship program that places at-risk SFUSD high school students in paid summer internships at San Francisco tech companies. Here are three reasons why your company needs a Future Grad intern:
It’s a rewarding experience – Your employees will mentor and work closely with underprivileged youth, helping prepare them for careers in technology.
Interns are great – Future Grad interns are smart and eager to learn. They can take care of that database project you keep putting off.
It’s free! – All interns are fully paid through sf.citi sponsors and there is no cost for your company to participate.
As a valued sf.citi member, you are eligible to receive a fully paid intern through Future Grads. Sign up now to take advantage of the funded internships before they run out!
Circle the Schools: A Visit to the Trading Floor
This week in Circle the Schools news, 22 juniors from Lincoln High School’s Academy of Finance visited the office of their partner company, Goldman Sachs. Visiting students took a tour of the trading floor and learned about careers in finance from a panel of employees. Students participated in a networking icebreaker – a “get to know” bingo – before joining some of firm’s senior partners for an intimate lunch. “The individuals who work at Goldman Sachs… were open about taking different paths to get [to their current careers],” noted Andrew, a student at Lincoln. “It makes us all feel less nervous about the future.” A special thanks to the team at Goldman Sachs for opening their doors and inspiring students to pursue careers in finance.
