Our internship programs provide a 10-week deep dive into what life looks like as a full-time member of Team Belvedere, including the type of projects interns work on. We don’t believe in “busy work” at Belvedere and provide our interns with meaningful learning experiences that are mutually beneficial. We believe that great ideas can come from anywhere and anyone so we encourage all of our interns, as well as full-time teammates, to take a passionate interest in promoting, within their team environment, those solutions they feel strongly about. Through a mid-term and final review process that mirrors our mid-year and year-end reviews on the full-time level, we proactively track intern feedback and performance with the intention that, if a mutual fit exists, our interns will join us the next year as full-time team members.

We model our programs to include similar components across positions that are carefully tailored to the individual role as well as the current needs of the firm. The main components of our program are our intern’s week-to-week experiences and a project portion.

Throughout this 10-week process, interns get to meet full-time team members firm-wide that work with many different elements of our business and systems. The training that interns go through is similar to the early stages of the new-hire on-boarding process, and proves to be an advantage to interns who come and join us full-time. As the internship goes on, the day-to-day experience shifts away from BTU and towards working towards each group’s respective project milestones. 

Project specifications, including research topics and programming languages used, have varied from year to year, but three themes remain: interns are given a good deal of responsibility throughout the internship, interns receive ample guidance and mentorship throughout the process, and interns are treated as important, valued members of Team Belvedere. Working at Belvedere is a fun, collaborative experience, and full-time teammates are very willing to get to know each intern class and provide help whenever possible.

In addition to meaningful work, interns also enjoy a host of benefits in addition to salary and a discretionary bonus, including, summer housing assistance, intern specific and firm-wide events, a free Divvy Bike membership, and access to our in-office perks.
