Rolling Admissions

Internship content, start and end dates are customizable. Just like our clients, we recognize that each student is different and seek to personalize a program that meets your strengths and natural work style without interfering with your academic schedule. This includes comprehensive training to ensure you will fit into our firm quickly. You will gain skills, network with other interns and senior managers, and build your understanding of the financial services industry. You will also have a senior mentor and junior mentor to help you settle in. Training includes:

  • Orientation to Playfair Planning Services
  • Business overviews
  • Web based tutorials
  • In-depth financial markets and product training
  • Division-specific training

Real World Experience in Real Teams

At Playfair Planning Services, you’re not just an intern; you are a potential full-time employee in training. That’s why you’ll be integrated into a team and given a real role with tangible projects. You will apply to and join a specific division, where you will benefit from further learning events, presentations, meetings and networking opportunities. This extends to an initial Kolbe Assessment and formal appraisal process; designed to focus on your individual objectives and give you feedback on any areas of improvement throughout the internship. Kolbe Indexes are fun and easy to complete online in less than 20 minutes. They are different from other self-assessments because they don't measure how smart you are (thinking) or what your personality is like (feeling). Rather, Kolbe Indexes measure how you naturally DO things.


Additional Exposure

We will throw many opportunities your way. Depending on the time of year that you intern, you will be exposed to cash flow and debt management, investment management, tax planning and preparation, retirement planning, special situations planning, and legacy, estate and heritage planning. You will meet several Portfolio Managers and Industry Leaders. You will be given a special project to complete; the results of which you will present to your peers.

How We Will Reward You
