GOLD INTERN PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Invest in your future and consider joining the Growing Opportunity for Leadership and Diversity (GOLD) Program. Our paid internship program will offer you the opportunity to work on projects that supports the Bank's business and impact the United States economy.
The Strategy, Risk + Analytics group shapes and communicates the overall Bank strategic direction, leads Bank-wide strategic planning efforts, advances the Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program, supports data-driven decision-making, and leads critical initiatives. The group works closely with Bank and Group leadership to accelerate innovation across the Bank, and drive collaboration, efficiency and effectiveness in Bank operations.
The types of projects that the Strategy, Risk + Analytics group undertakes are often short-term and high impact. For that reason, the intern will be asked to take ownership of a project and see it to completion, even in the relatively short period of a summer internship. In addition, due to the Bank-wide nature of the work, the intern will have both the opportunity and challenge of interacting with a broad set of stakeholders from across multiple Groups, as well as interacting with top Bank leadership.
Because the Strategy, Risk + Analytics Group is relatively small, the summer intern will immediately be a critical resource in contributing to the goals and objectives of the team. In addition, because much of our work is future-focused, the team particularly values new, diverse insights and approaches to our work that current undergraduate students are able to bring.
