Mutual Funds Summer Internship

John Hancock provides opportunities for exceptional students who are interested in exploring the Mutual Fund business. We offer a unique opportunity to learn hands on and explore the possibilities of a career at John Hancock through our Fund Internship Program. This 12-week program offers summer employment for students wishing to gain insight and valuable experience with some of the top professionals in the mutual fund business.

Mutual Fund Interns receive real assignments to grow their skills while completing meaningful work. Internship placements may include various teams within Fund Administration, Transfer Agency, Sales and Investments. Students are provided opportunities to network and increase public speaking and executive presence skills. A special project will be assigned to each student, which is meant to leave a legacy on the team he/she interned with. Students will be asked to present to a wide audience on projects at the end of the program.
