Since 1991, Northern Trust has partnered with Chicago Summer Business Institute to provide high school students with financial sector internships. Each year, high performing students from Chicago Public, parochial and private schools are chosen to partner with some of Northern Trust’s most innovative financial minds.
Through project work children are exposed to careers in finance. Northern Trust’s program includes additional benefits such as college prep sessions, resume writing, interview skills and one-on-one mentoring. Northern Trust’s Chairman and CEO, Rick Waddell, takes a personal interest in the students, joining the students every year for a discussion on leadership and working in financial services.
Terra Martire, Manager of College and University Programs at Northern Trust, believes that our employees are energized by their work with the students and are proud that we are able to connect with the communities we serve in this very personal way.
Congratulations Northern Trust!
