Additional Information:      

Have an immediate impact while you spend twelve weeks with us this summer as one of our interns!  We will give you the opportunity to learn from our analysts, experience “real life” challenges with your team & the firm while learning all about CRC and evaluating whether you could see yourself building a career with us in the equity research business.

There are two primary components of the internship program.  First, you will become a member of a research team, where you will become an integral part of the entire research process – from the channel research itself, to compiling the written product, drawing conclusions, applying conclusions to financial models, formulating stock calls, communicating to our internal sales force and our clients. 

Second, you will complete an independent project for one of our hedge fund clients.  You will have the opportunity to work directly with the Portfolio Manager and Analysts at one of our accounts on a special interest project outside of CRC’s core coverage.  Utilize the broad skill set you will learn over the summer to develop channel research, draw conclusions, create deliverables, and communicate your conclusions directly to our clients.  Our client utilizes your work to begin, build, or liquidate positions.

Other aspects of the program include: Daily firm wide morning meeting, weekly analytical group discussions with the President, mock portfolio competition, meeting shadow day in NYC, classroom style training sessions, on the job shadow experiences, mentor program, annual corn-hole tournament & picnic, various other social events
