The Evercore Summer Program is a 10-week program (including one
week of training) designed to provide highly motivated
undergraduates and MBAs with a representative experience in
investment banking. As part of the program, interns will work on a
variety of assignments across industries including: acquisitions,
restructurings, recapitalizations, divestitures, partnerships and
joint ventures. As part of the team assigned to these projects,
individuals will be responsible for a variety of tasks including:
preparing for and attending client meetings, financial modeling,
industry analysis, due diligence and process management and
execution of transactions. Summer analysts and associates typically
work as part of small teams and as a result get a significant
amount of exposure to senior bankers as well as clients, and are
able to take on as much responsibility early on as they can handle.
Summer interns are sometimes staffed side-by-side with a full-time
counterpart, but are also given opportunities to work on deal teams
without another analyst/associate and are responsible for a large
portion of the team's analytical work.
The Evercore internship program is a great way to gain
transaction experience as well as get hired full time--the firm
sources a majority of its junior hires from its internship program.
Evercore has a very high yield on offers extended, and practically
every summer intern accepts their full-time offer to join the firm.
This minimizes competition and fosters a more collaborative
environment which is reflective of the culture as a whole. Senior
bankers take an active role in mentoring young bankers, and over
the summer Firm social events are held about once a week.
