FAIRFIELD, IA – June 29, 2022 – Cambridge is pleased to welcome students from around the country for the 11th consecutive year of The Next Step® internship program. The program was designed to develop the next generation of talent in the financial services industry. Cambridge received hundreds of applications for its 2022 program and selected 30 students from a wide range of colleges and universities across the country. The students are working in our Fairfield, Iowa office, or the Phoenix, Arizona office which opened in 2020 as part of the firm’s strategic growth objectives.
The Next Step program provides students an opportunity to join various departments across the firm in full-time, paid internship roles. During the 11-week program, interns learn about industry basics, participate in professional development courses, shadow Cambridge associates in other departments, and present final projects to colleagues. Supplementing their college studies with practical experience in the financial services industry, this year’s interns will work closely with a professional mentor, supervisor, and executive champion in their assigned departments.
In previous years, several interns have returned for multiple summers, while others have gone on to work in various financial services positions across the country. Many students who participate in the program return to Cambridge as full-time associates. The Next Step internship program is valuable in the development of the next generation of talent in the financial services industry.
