Life at BlackRock

Wonder what it’s really like to work at BlackRock? Our employees from offices all over the world share their thoughts on what makes our culture so special and unlike any other financial services firm – and what’s kept them here.

Our Summer Internship Programme is designed to provide students a challenging, meaningful and supportive internship experience that replicates as closely as possible the experience of being a full-time BlackRock Analyst. The programme begins with a Summer Intern orientation which offers a thorough overview of the firm and the opportunity to hear from a number of senior leaders. Following orientation, interns receive on-the-job training and are given day-to-day responsibilities to contribute to their teams throughout the summer.

The programme also includes a speaker series, mentoring programme, and various networking opportunities. The campus recruiting team also partners very closely with the firm Employee Networks to ensure the summer interns can learn and interact with our employee networks and learn about our Inclusion & Diversity initiatives. The firm is highly committed to the Summer Internship Programme and it is the main pipeline into our Analyst Programme.
