Why You Need an Internship to Get a Financial Analysis Job

by Richard C. Wilson on July 11, 2012

The job market today is highly competitive. If you are just joining the workforce, or planning a career change, one of the best ways to get a job is to have some experience in the field of financial analysis. An internship is one of the best ways to get this experience.

On-the-Job Training – The biggest benefit to an internship is the on-the-job training it provides. Many times an intern is given the opportunity to work on a wide-variety of projects and gain diversified experience.

Networking – An internship can provide an excellent opportunity for networking. Even if you do not get a full-time job at the company with which you intern, you may make some networking contacts that may lead to a future financial analysis job.

Resume Builder – There is nothing worse than looking for a job with a resume in hand that has no relevant financial analysis experience. An internship can provide you with relevant experience to help you build your resume.

Finding a financial analysis job can be challenging. Working as a financial analysis intern can be an excellent way to gain experience and help lead to potential future financial analysis employment.
