Veterans Transition Assistance Program 2017 Summer Internship - Chicago
About the Veterans Transition Assistance Program
Honoring the Guggenheim Partners legacy, and in coordination with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Veterans Initiative Advisory Committee, Guggenheim has established the Veterans Transition Assistance Program (VTAP) internship as an opportunity to provide transitioning veterans (Veteran Associates) with exposure to the financial services industry at a rapidly growing firm.
The aim of the VTAP internship is to provide a select group of Veteran Associates opportunities to: accelerate their career transition by enhancing their skills, gain exposure to working in a corporate environment, and expand their networks.
The VTAP is a paid, 10-week internship where the Veteran Associate will experience our collaborative culture and work within one of Guggenheim Partners’ many business units, while simultaneously participating in the five components of the VTAP: (1) Formal onboarding and classroom lectures;
(2) On- the-job training; (3) A mentorship program; (4) Networking events; and (5) Volunteer opportunities with veterans service organizations.
