Annual Summer Internship Program

2015 Summer Internship Program

To help build the pipeline for the next generation of leaders, Beneficial State is proud to offer an intensive summer internship program that provides valuable work and learning experience to high-caliber students interested in beneficial banking, community economic development and responsible financial services.  Interns work on challenging projects, complete deliverables designed to contribute to their educational and career development, and present their recommendations to the entire staff and senior leadership team at the end of the program.

Interns also participate in the weekly Beneficial Banking Curriculum & Speaker Series, which includes workshops led by experts in community banking, investing, and responsible finance and site visits for interns to see the work in action. Past interns have joined the Beneficial State team after graduation and leveraged their rich internship experience into careers in financial services and a variety of industries.

Application & Process

Each year, we conduct a nationwide search for the best and brightest to join the Beneficial State family for our signature summer internship program to work on important projects at Beneficial State and Albina Community Bank. In 2015, we received a record number of applications, and the acceptance rate for the program was less than 10%. While we primarily target students pursuing an MBA or a related graduate degree, exceptional undergraduates and individuals from other academic disciplines are encouraged to apply.  After a very thoughtful recruitment process, we have filled all open internship positions for 2015.  Please check this page for new internship opportunities starting next January or February.

Career Management staff at University Programs, please contact Maritessa Bravo Ares at with any questions about our summer internship program.
