Bank Iowa Invests in Eleven Interns for Summer 2023
June 20, 2023
Bank Iowa has hired eleven summer interns for the summer of 2023. The highly competitive, dynamic internship program draws hundreds of applications from Iowa college students each summer.
According to Bank Iowa Learning and Development Manager Jill Shedek, a main draw of the program is the bank’s rotational internship. One of the programs interns can choose, the rotational internship allows students to experience different perspectives across banking operations, from retail to lending.
“Iowa’s universities and colleges have done a tremendous job encouraging their students to gain real-world experience sooner in their academic careers,” said Shedek. “This has expanded our pool of applicants, allowing us to select the most curious, most qualified and most committed interns our state has to offer. The other benefit of younger interns is that our staff gets to help up-and-coming bankers pinpoint their areas of passion earlier. Students can then more efficiently design the remainder of their coursework to be highly relevant to the future they envision.”
