Live a day in the life with Team Belvedere.

Belvedere Trading’s externship program is a great way for underclassmen students to learn more about the proprietary trading and technology industry, while gaining a valuable understanding of where their career interests lie. The one-day job shadowing opportunity can help students early in their academic program learn about internship and full-time positions available at our firm as well as what to expect going through the on-campus recruitment process in the future.

 

A FEW WORDS from our externs ...

Thanks to this experience, I felt comfortable asking all my burning questions about life as a trader. Having engaged with so many of Belvedere’s employees firsthand, I think I understand the firm’s culture to a degree I could not have obtained from reading brochures, attending info sessions, or browsing Wall Street Oasis.

At Belvedere Trading, our externs have the opportunity to gain first-hand insight into our trading and technology operations during their one-day shadowing opportunity. An extern will spend the morning learning more about the firm and our unique roles including our Trader Trainee, Hybrid Trader Trainee, Software Engineer, and Business Analyst positions.

They will spend the rest of the externship with one of our twelve technology teams and rotating between our electronic trading desks. Through interaction and observation, externs gain a firsthand understanding of how our technology teams work directly with our trading teams to invent and improve our proprietary software, all while witnessing the teamwork and open communication that contributes to our unique company culture.

The formal application process for our externship program begins in December, with applications accepted and reviewed through early January, and mirrors our full-time and internship process. While it is an educational program, the process is competitive, where major, strength of program, GPA, and demonstrated interest in the industry are heavily considered in extern selection. Our externships typically take place over spring break for most academic institutions.
