William Blair & Company is a global investment banking and
asset management firm. We are committed to building enduring
relationships with our clients and providing expertise and
solutions to meet their evolving needs. An independent and
employee-owned firm, William Blair is based in Chicago, with
offices in 13 cities across five continents.
If you enjoy working in a dynamic environment that challenges
you to think independently and deliver innovative solutions for
clients, then William Blair is the ideal place to launch your
career. William Blair offers a 10-week summer analyst program in
investment banking typically following a student's junior year in
college. Because of our market niche -- growth companies -- and the
small size of this program, summer analysts have the unique
opportunity to work with current analysts, associates, and senior
bankers. In a short period of time, summer analysts gain a high
level of competency and play an integral role in various deals.
After a short training period, summer analysts join deal teams and
work on live transactions and assist in developing new business
pitch material. The job encompasses all functions of a full-time
analyst, including financial modeling and analysis, industry and
company research, and involvement with client communication and
meetings. This is a paid internship, and the top-performing summer
analysts are typically offered the opportunity to become a
full-time analyst following graduation.
