About Charles Schwab Intern Academy

The 9-Week Schwab Intern Academy is one of the core talent pipelines, offering upcoming graduates meaningful work and structured learning experiences to engage them in Schwab's culture through a cohesive and centrally managed program.    

  • Offers a meaningful summer experience by working on real business projects that help meet clients' needs
  • Provides a holistic, cohesive and structured blend of business-specific experiences ("tracks") and a shared learning curriculum ("cohorts")
  • Business tracks are meaningful projects that contribute to Schwab's success
  • Cohort groups meet together to learn about Schwab's purpose, brand, and focus on client advocacy and community service; about Schwab's values and culture and why this is a great place to work; about individual strengths and how to leverage those strengths in a professional environment; how to spend, manage, and invest your money wisely; and how to plan your career journey
  • Cohorts perform many group activities together, including real Schwab business case development and volunteering in the community
  • Each Schwab intern is supported by a direct leader, human resource professionals, and also has connections with senior leaders

Schwab looks for intern candidates who are optimistic, driven, curious, innovative, adaptable, and believe in the value of partnership. Candidates must also be a current college or graduate school student. Strong preference is given to those who will graduate within 12 months of the internship.

The 2019 Schwab Intern Academy includes tracks such as Client Solutions, Corporate Risk Management, Finance, Human Resources, Internal Audit, Investor Services, Branch Network, Marketing, Retirement Plan Services, Retirement Business Services, Operations, and Technology.
