Stifel is excited to announce the return of the Institutional Group’s Sophomore Explorers Program for Summer 2022.
Stifel is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to cultivating an inclusive and multicultural workplace. The Sophomore Explorers Program, which is a full-time, 5-week long career exploration and professional development opportunity, encourages those who will enhance the diversity of our organization to apply. This includes individuals who identify as Black, Hispanic, Native American, Female, Veteran, LGBTQ+, having a disability or a member of any other underrepresented group.
During the Sophomore Explorers Program, motivated undergraduate sophomores will gain insight into careers in Fixed Income Capital Markets, Equity Research, and Investment Banking. Participants will also have an opportunity to develop their analytic and practical skills through in-depth training and projects. Additionally, each participant will become acquainted with experienced Stifel professionals through networking opportunities, a mentorship program, and a speaker series. This will be a hybrid program, with both a virtual and in-person component. The highlight of the program will be in-person capstone in New York City.
By the end of the program, participants will have a deeper understanding of the financial services industry in general, and Stifel’s Institutional Group businesses in particular. Successful participants will be considered for a Summer 2023 internship role in the division that best matches their skills and interests.
