Our Investment Banking Analyst Program provides young professionals a platform on which to develop their skill sets and augment their education 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 gain robust exposure to investment banking with hands-on experience building financial models and Excel workbooks, conducting and documenting due diligence, understanding and editing offering documents, updating pitch books and servicing clients and prospects in a highly entrepreneurial environment. 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. Teamwork, synthetization of complex information and excellent communication are the three crucial skills which young investment bankers must gain and you will at TOBIN.
Each summer and full-time analyst will have the opportunity to enroll in Wall Street Prep’s Flagship Modeling course, which is paid for by the Firm, during their tenure at TOBIN. This course provides analysts with an in-depth understanding of complex financial concepts and modeling techniques that are important for every investment banker to possess. At TOBIN, we emphasize the learning process for our analysts and support them in every step along the way.
Our investment banking analyst internships are all remote and managed directly by our Managing Partner from our Uptown Charlotte office location. While the internship is unpaid, TOBIN provides all but student interns with housing stipends to help defray their expenses and provides bonuses, based on contributions made to the Firm, from time to time.
Due to the demands of the program, analysts typically join the full-time analyst program after college or graduate school graduation. 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 full-time with our Firm, please send your application no earlier than one month before your graduation with the date when you are available to begin working with us.
