Summer Internship Program 2020

The internship is a ten week program designed to provide valuable career experience for students who wish to apply their education and skills in a fixed-income-oriented work environment.

June 8, 2020 - August 14, 2020 or
June 15, 2020 - August 21, 2020

This is an intensive program that mirrors the responsibilities of a full time position within the Firm. Participants get on-the-job training as well as technical and business-oriented education. The intern will work in one of a various number of departments within the Firm, dependent upon the intern's talents and overall needs of the Business.

Goal of the Internship Program
The primary goal of the program is to develop a pipeline of qualified candidates for future employment at Western Asset while meeting our short-term staffing needs with high potential and highly educated staff.

Program Initiatives
Interns will be given the chance to gain a broader understanding of the organization and will be offered, in addition to their daily work responsibilities, the opportunity to participate in the following:

  • Intern Orientation: Including highlights from "Introduction to Western Asset" focusing on our culture, mission and values as well as meeting team members and getting familiar with the daily expectations
  • Lunch and Learn/Coffee Talk Series: Informal presentations from various Department Heads and Managers spotlighting the group's function, structure, internal and external clients & goals and objectives. Each presentation is followed by an open Q&A session.
  • Social Event(s): An event outside of the office will be coordinated in order to bring all interns, their managers and team members together as a group and informally develop relationships.

Application deadline was January 31, 2020.
