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
strategic advisory and mergers and acquisitions. 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.
