Investors Community Bank recently welcomed five interns for the summer of 2021. Each intern will have the opportunity to gain real world experiences and valuable skills through their new roles.
Throughout the summer, students have the chance to determine whether a career in banking is a fit with their field of study. With interns being in the office this summer, they are able to gain hands on experience with the processes and procedures of their positions all while getting to know the culture and employees at ICB. At the completion of their internship, the students will participate in discussions with management and Human Resources where they will highlight what they learned and gained from the program. They will also have the opportunity to provide the bank with their experiences and feedback for the future.
“The goal of our summer internship program is to provide hands on learning to the interns. We are thrilled to have five summer interns this year that can gain real world experience in their field of study,” said Rachel Schulz, Human Resources Specialist. “As a previous summer intern here at Investors Community Bank, I can’t encourage internships enough. Internships help students gain experience that can help them get future jobs, and internships also help organizations be more innovative by seeing things from a fresh point of view.”
