- Corporate & Operations Careers
“Obtaining a full time, paid role fresh out of college that also provided hands on practice, training, mentorship and exposure to multiple areas of the business was pretty much a dream job. From day one, everyone in Audit welcomed me as part of the team. The comradery amongst everyone and their passion for their work and goals really spoke to me.”
Early Career Rotational Program, Internal Audit
“I wanted to work in Finance or Accounting but didn’t know exactly the career to pursue. The FACT program allowed me to gain valuable experience in several different groups in a relatively short period of time due to the three-month rotations. I was able to expand my network and learn different management styles. It also encouraged flexibility and the ability to experience various roles. I gained a more holistic view of the bank and the interconnectedness of each department.”
Finance, Accounting & Treasury (FACT) Rotational Program
“I did not know what commercial banking was when I started the interview process my senior year of college. I only knew that I was interested in a job that was both analytically stimulating and client-facing. After looking into commercial banking a bit more, I realized that it had most of the things I was looking for and allowed me to specialize depending on my interests (e.g. healthcare, technology, etc.).”
