The Graduate Summer Associate Program provides outstanding graduate students with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience with a unique institution. Through advanced project work assignments and professional development activities, Associates are provided with an extensive understanding of the work of the New York Fed. Summer Associates will be given the opportunity to enhance their business skills through critical financial analysis, formal presentations, research and writing.
Associates are assigned to a particular business area for the summer, but they will also have opportunities for collaboration with other summer Associates and Analysts and with employees from around the Bank. In addition to their daily responsibilities, Associates attend weekly presentations hosted by senior management. These presentations provide an extensive overview of the Bank’s responsibilities and operations, and offer a unique opportunity to learn about full-time career opportunities upon graduation. The Bank’s Summer Associate Program is the primary recruiting event for the New York Fed’s full time campus hiring.
