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 internship will also include three events that will be held in the Des Moines, IA area in early June, July and early August. These events will consist of networking for power, business etiquette training, banker panels, mock interviews/resume critiquing and more.
