Financial Services Career Exploration 

We have developed a Financial Services Career Exploration curriculum, which focuses on careers in the financial services industry. This program not only helps students learn about career pathways, it also helps them gain personal finance skills to manage their finances – such as creating a budget, making a savings plan, managing credit, and more. It includes mentoring from more than a dozen of our senior-level executives from a variety of departments.

Upon successful completion, students are eligible to apply for a paid internship with us in departments such as Service Delivery, Human Resources, Marketing, Membership Development, Card Services, Information Services, and many more.

From 2014 – 2017, 150 students have taken the course; 61 program graduates have become Nusenda interns, and 19 former interns are now full-time Nusenda employees.

Student Internship Program

“This internship is a mutually beneficial program in that it helps students see potential professions for themselves; and assists us in developing and bringing new people into our industry. We are pleased to say that many have stayed on as they went through college, and are employed with us today.”

– Michelle Dearholt, Chief Performance Officer
