We believe that, when done right, investing liberates people to create their own destiny. We are driven by our purpose to champion every client’s goals with passion and integrity. We respect and appreciate the diversity of our employees, our clients, and the communities we serve. We challenge conventions strategically to create value for our clients, our firm and the world. We live and bring to life the concept of ‘own your tomorrow’ every day. We champion our employee strengths, guide their development, and invest in their long-term success. We hire optimistic, results-oriented, curious, innovative, and adaptable people with the desire to help our clients and one another succeed.

As a company, we were established by Chuck over 40 years ago to champion Main Street over Wall Street, and to help Americans transform themselves from earners to owners. Through advocacy and innovation, we work to make investing more affordable, accessible and understandable for all. As we enter our fifth decade, we are looking for talented, innovative and driven people who believe they can help themselves, and our clients, create a better future.

Intern Academy Overview:

It is not often you get a chance to work with a company that has been challenging the conventions of the industry for over 40 years. But that is what you could be doing next summer!

Schwab’s mission is to help our clients create a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities. It is summed up in our tagline – Own your tomorrow – and it permeates everything we do.

Schwab Intern Academy is our centrally managed summer internship program for juniors and rising seniors. The design of the program invites interns to engage directly in Schwab’s culture of service, while challenging them with a blend of learning programs, team-building activities, networking opportunities, and enriching work projects. Features of our 2017 program include:

  • Business Track Project:  Work with a Schwab organization that provides a meaningful and valuable experience to translate classroom learning into real business projects.
  • Intern Cohort Project:  Partner with other interns to brainstorm, discuss learning experiences, and present solutions.
  • Learning Activities:  Participate in facilitated classroom training, team discussions and events, individual assessments and activities, senior leader meetings, and on-the-job training.
  • Feedback Loop:  Receive regular feedback from your manager, participate in career-related discussions, and provide your own feedback.
  • Strengths Application:  Learn about yourself and how to apply your unique strengths, abilities, and goals to the work you do as part of Schwab’s ‘strengths-based’ culture.
  • Networking:  Gain support by interacting with professionals across Schwab, including senior leaders, peers, and Schwab Intern Academy Alumni.

We look for students with:

  • Optimism and curiosity, who are inspired by a keen sense of purpose, awareness, and knowledge 
  • Adaptability and flexibility, who enjoy working through cross-functional partnerships and collaboration to achieve a common purpose
  • An innovative and questioning mindset, who constantly look for better ways to do things, have a passion for service, and aim to exceed client expectations
