High School Finnance Intership

<p>Would it be at all possible to get some sort of finnance intership in highschool? Back office, runner, or otherwise. I have a great deal of interest in finnace and the world capital markets and general and I want to get started early so I can build upon and grow my knowledge is there any way I could do this?</p>


<p>Start in corp finance or Financial planning if you're a HS kid</p>

<p>I mean, maybe...but you might not get paid. The other thing is that most major companies look for someone with work experience. If you don't have any, you might want to try to take a full-time job, even if it's a camp counselor, waiter, salesperson, etc. It'll give you enough experience to get a good internship in finance when you're a college student. </p>

<p>I've also found that internships where all you're doing is making coffee and copying stuff kind of suck. And you don't get paid. You might as well get a job at a smaller office and get paid for doing scut work haha!</p>

<p>No there is no possibility of getting an internship like this if you are still in HS. Even for college sophomores and juniors, it is difficult to get finance internships. Your best bet is to do what was said above and get a typical hs job.</p>

<p>if you are in high school, the best shot you have is finding a local financial adviser and asking for their help. or maybe know someone that has a financial adviser and see if they can set you up.</p>

<p>if they don't offer to pay you, i would just go with the regular job. you have plenty of oppertunities to get a better internship in the future, you should be looking to save money.</p>

<p>Unpaid is probably the only finance internship you will get. If you work with a financial advisor, I'm sure you would be doing a lot of office assistant type work. Filing, ms word, excel etc. So i'd suggest you hone your skills in MS Word/Excel/Powerpoint before even considering an internship. I'm at my third internship this summer and one of the first things my boss asked me in the interview was "hows your ms office skills" and this is for a quantitative analyst position.</p>

<p>Best bet though is to try the "franchised" financial advisors such as ameriprise financial. Because those individuals are running their own offices with their own cash. They want cheap labor.</p>

<p>When asking for this type of internship, you have to act like you have some sales skills(or potential, IE charismatic, bright, happy, smiling, enthusiastic). Because in the long haul, that financial advisor might consider investing in your franchise. get what I mean?</p>

<p>I'm a high school senior, and I have an Accounting internship at a major northeast cell phone wholesaler. I learn A LOT about managing a company financially-tax returns, balancing bills, bank reconciliations. </p>

<p>Plus, I get paid $14/hr =).</p>
