About the Program

Securities interns spend their first week in a comprehensive training program covering all aspects of the markets. This will include looking at specific products and businesses in Fixed Income and Equities and participating in case studies or simulations. Additionally you will also be given training on applications and tools such as Excel and Bloomberg, which you will use throughout the program. By the end of the week you will be fully conversant with the knowledge, terminology and technical skills to support your learning in the program.

Interns are allocated to desks following a placement day held in April, when the incoming class meets with representatives from each desk and function (Research or Sales, Trading or Structuring). The campus team will also provide information on each group, and guidance based on your interview feedback to help secure the best placement.

Rotational interns will identify their preferred desks, and once thier interview feedback and preferences have been coordinated, they will be assigned to a three-desk rotation.

All interns are provided a mentor to oversee their time with Credit Suisse, and encourage networking opportunities. On each placement you will have a dedicated Desk Coordinator who will manage your day to day workload, and provide feedback in formal reviews. The summer internship is our core hiring channel for our full-time Analyst class.
