Recruitment Process

The Summer Internship Program is addressed to students who have completed their second year of studies. The Program runs for two and a half months - from early July to mid-September. During that time, students have the opportunity to carry out interesting projects and tasks, learn the nature of work in the banking sector, and establish professional contacts within Citi Group in Poland (Citi Handlowy, Citi Service Center, Dom Maklerski Citi Handlowy). Each participant of the program carries out his or her tasks and acquires knowledge and experience under the supervision of an individual Tutor. At the end of the program, the interns present their achievements and results of their work to the Heads of the divisions at which they were interning. We are continually developing and enhancing the Summer Internship Program based on the opinions of its participants in order to meet the needs and expectations of students.
Summer Interns are granted on employment contract and receive salary.

During the selection process, which takes place from March to May, we invite selected candidates to interviews with the HR representatives and managers who are responsible for preparing projects for the Program. At these interviews, the students’ knowledge is assessed, and they are asked about their professional and academic interests and career plans. As part of the interview, students may also be asked to take some tests.

During the Program, participants take part in Orientation training during which they have a chance to learn general facts about our organization, its culture, history and the principles of Citi entities in Poland.

In addition to Orientation, participants also take part in other custom-tailored training sessions and various integrating activities. In early July, all the interns go on a trip that features some volunteer activities.

Previous years, Interns were shooting the Lip Dub and took part in the Innovation Project, during which they worked on innovative banking solutions. The authors of the best ideas were given awards.

Having completed the Summer Internship Program, the interns gain a number of opportunities for development in various fields, depending on the quality of their work during the Program.

Graduates and final-year students may continue at specialist positions, or join Citi at one of the Graduate Programs like the Analyst Programs or the Regional Programs.
