TOBIN Investment Banking Analyst Program
Our Investment Banking Analyst Program provides young professionals a platform to develop and augment their education and skill sets in the financial services industry to further their careers. Available to professionals with graduate or undergraduate degrees, or students currently in college, participants in the program receive invaluable insight to the industry and gain rigorous ground-level banking experience that is highly transferable to both corporate and investment banking positions.
Although our analyst program is unpaid, it provides foundational skills essential to climbing the investment banking career ladder. Most of our past analysts have found positions outside the Firm while participating in the program. With an eye toward your career progression, we do expect each analyst to balance the full-time work experience with an ongoing search for paid employment.
The TOBIN Analyst Program affords candidates the opportunity to earn robust exposure to investment banking with hands-on experience building financial models and Excel workbooks, conducting and documenting due diligence, writing offering documents, updating pitch books and servicing clients in a highly entrepreneurial environment under the supervision of our Managing Partner. Throughout the internship, analysts learn and grow by developing a first-hand understanding of investment banking and business systems through resolution of complex situations and processes.
Our Tryon Plaza office location in Uptown Charlotte provides a conveniently located base for your networking into other investment banks and commercial institutions in the greater Charlotte area. However, with the new reality of Working-from-Home, TOBIN currently allows analyst interns to work from any location in the United States. All of our employees and contractors are working from home except for the Managing Partner. Every week, an analyst intern is invited to work in the office during an ensuing week in order to gain exposure to the office environment and the Managing Partner.
Due to the demands of the program, analysts typically join the program after graduation or while taking classes part-time. Generally, our analysts work with our Firm for six-to-eight months although shorter and longer terms do occur. We have analysts work with us for as little as one month and for as long as eighteen months. As with any internship or job, candidates are required to maintain strict confidentiality.
Candidates for the full-time internship program may apply for the TOBIN Investment Banking Analyst Program at any time during the year. If you have yet to graduate but are interested in working with our Firm, please send your application one month before your graduation and the time when you are available to begin working with us.

Candidates wishing to apply for the summer internship program should submit their resume and cover letter during the last week of February, as we conduct interviews for the summer program in March.
Our winter internship program coincides with winter academic breaks and is tailored to the individual candidate’s personal and academic schedule.
