Your internship

Students can expect to have a fun and rewarding summer completing an internship at Advantage Capital.

Onboarding and Orientation

Interns will participate in a two-day orientation to introduce the intern to Advantage Capital and the summer internship program. Orientation will consist of a welcome from our senior leadership team, team introductions and tours, coordinated meetings with your supervisor and mentor, and overview of your first projects, training videos, and much more!

Mentor Experience

Each intern will be paired with a mentor that will provide support and advice throughout the internship. Mentors do not evaluate intern performance, and therefore serve as a resource for the intern without having to think about performance review. Our Mentors will serve at the intern’s “buddy” on their first day and will regularly connect with them throughout the summer.

Intern Week of Service

Advantage Capital values employee work in the office, as well as within the community.  During our Week of Service, our interns will have opportunities to support our communities by participating in local volunteer efforts.

Professional Growth and Networking

Intern development is a top priority in the Advantage Capital Internship Program, much of which will be gained by coordinated networking events and educational sessions. Interns will have regular opportunities to enhance their skills, build upon their leadership competencies and expand their personal networks throughout their summer.

Performance Management

As an intern, it is our intent for you to grow and develop personally and professionally. A part of this includes performance management and feedback. Interns will have frequent conversations with their support team, as well as a final performance evaluation.
