Seventh consecutive summer of providing students with insight into the financial services industry

July 10, 2018

FAIRFIELD, IA – July 10, 2018 – Cambridge is pleased to announce the continued success of The Next Step®summer internship program which welcomed twenty-six students to the Cambridge home office earlier this summer. For approximately ten weeks, students from across the country join departments throughout the firm in full-time, paid internships that offer the opportunity to gain insight into the financial services industry.

The program continues to attract highly talented students as Cambridge received hundreds of applications for the 26 positions this year. Representing colleges and universities from across the country, this year’s class of interns will gain a unique opportunity that will supplement their college studies.

The Next Step internship program gives students practical insight into the financial services industry, along with a professional mentor, supervisor, and executive champion. The students are given training on industry basics and trends, along with professional development courses and opportunities to job shadow other areas across the firm.

This is the seventh consecutive summer Cambridge has welcomed students to the home office as part of The Next Step internship program. Several interns have returned for multiple summers while others have gone on to work in financial advisor offices across the country. Nearly 30 percent of the students who have participated in the program returned to Cambridge as full-time associates. Cambridge is proud of The Next Step internship program’s ability to develop the next generation of talent in the financial services industry.
