Our Opportunities

Bank of America


We offer a variety of opportunities including insight programs, summer internships, and industrial placements/attachments. So wherever you’re up to with your studies – and whatever your skills and ambitions – we can help you build a career on your own terms.

Studying for your first university degree? Our Banking Connections insight program offers a shorter, broader view of our businesses. Rather than being placed in a specific team, you’ll enjoy a tailored program that will help you develop new skills and learn enough about our different opportunities to apply for an internship.

Summer internships typically last 10-12 weeks and attract students in their penultimate year of university who want to start working full-time the following year. They’re our primary source of hiring for our full-time graduate programs and a great way to get a taste of what it’ll be like – as well as hone your skills through structured performance evaluations, training, development and social opportunities.

We also offer fixed-term placements such as industrial placements/attachments throughout the year that vary in length depending on business need.

Angeline Tan
Vice President, Global Transaction Services

What does a typical day look like for you?

There is no typical day in the Regional Corporate Sales team and that is what excites me most about my job! Some days are spent meeting clients and learning more about how we can value-add to them. Other days are spent strategizing and preparing decks and proposals for a client pitch. There are also times where I attend internal learning sessions on new product launches, organize bank events for our clients, and conduct comprehensive company and industry research, amongst many other activities.

How do you describe the culture at the bank?

One of the best things about the bank is that everyone is extremely open and inclusive. Juniors and interns are encouraged to interact with senior management regularly, and all opinions and ideas are valued across all levels of the bank.

I believe that this is a great firm to not only begin your career, but also a place to continue developing your career.

What do you enjoy doing in your personal time?

I love traveling. Exploring new cities, being exposed to different cultures, and meeting people from various backgrounds excite me. I am passionate about food, and am a self-professed food blogger.

Where do you see yourself in the future?

I see myself being a full-fledged Regional Treasury Sales Officer holding a portfolio of clients across various industries in Bank of America Merrill Lynch. I believe that this is a great firm to not only begin your career, but also a place to continue developing your career.


Rosaline Wang
Officer, Global Technology

What persuaded you to work for Bank of America?

What really set Bank of America apart from other firms was its diverse culture. Having gone through the technology internship program, I experienced firsthand the diverse and inclusive culture that the company has in place. Employees at the bank come from different countries, races and walks of life, and each bring fresh perspectives to the team. In a group setting, all ideas are valued equally and exchanged freely, creating a conducive environment for innovation and growth. This enriches my work experience greatly by giving me exposure to diverse talents and opportunities.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Among the many benefits of working at the bank (such as the great people, culture and work life balance), the one I appreciate the most is the high level of challenge and excitement in my work.

I face different issues and obstacles every day. Formulating effective solutions to these problems requires critical thinking, flexibility, and interpersonal skills. This keeps me on my toes and forces me to stay sharp.

Employees at the bank come from different countries, races and walks of life, and each bring fresh perspectives to the team.

What skills are important for a technical analyst in operations team?

Good logical thinking and some technical and financial knowledge are useful. I think a good attitude and willingness to learn are important too.

What do you enjoy doing in your personal time?

I like running and dancing. I run weekly with my colleagues after work and sometimes attend salsa classes on weekends.

In one word, how would you describe Bank of America?

Collaborative

What advice would you give to students?

Firstly, don’t be scared if you currently lack direction. Have the courage to grab and learn from every opportunity either in school or work. Secondly, keep your mind open to all roles because each of them contributes to your experience and exposure. Lastly, networking is essential to build relationships and help you gain exposure to different perspectives.
