What we look for in a candidate
Successful Jefferies Interns will be able to multitask and manage a variety of projects simultaneously. They will have an opportunity to work on projects in Southeast Asia as well as greater China. Candidates must demonstrate professionalism and client management skills together with strong technical, written, and verbal communication skills. The work is fast paced, intense and intellectually stimulating. The ability to work under pressure and tight deadlines, be adaptable and work both independently and as part of a team are essential traits of a successful candidate. You should have a strong academic background on track in obtaining a minimum of a 3.4 GPA or equivalent and be in your penultimate year (completing the second year of a three-year degree, or third year of a four-year Bachelor's degree or equivalent program). Although a background in accounting or finance is helpful, we hire Interns who have studied a variety of disciplines. Asian language skills is a plus.
