Job Description


The purpose of the GTE Financial Internship Program is to provide a venue for student engagement and experiential learning. The intern serves in roles that provide real output and value to the organization and our members.

The dates for the internship program commence May through August 2019. Interns are expected to work full-time hours (40 hours per week) and take no more than one evening or online course. The expectation is for the GTE Financial Internship Program to be the intern’s priority for the summer term.

GTE Financial seeks to provide the best Member Experience at all times by providing Virtual options that promote self-discovery, in addition to building relationships through Community Financial Centers. A successful candidate, upon completion, should have a good understanding of all areas of Member Care and how the gap can be bridged between Virtual and other channels. This year, GTE is focused on the New Card Experience. We are changing the way our entire card portfolio is currently serviced while keeping the Member Experience top of mind. The student intern will be instrumental in helping discover and implement these solutions.
