  • Overview

    Personal development is one of Commonwealth’s core values—and we wholeheartedly believe in providing that support to everyone who walks in our door. Since 1999, we have been welcoming summer interns into our Anything but Common® community, providing career-building skills and experiences designed to set you up for success.


    Over the years, the program has evolved and become significantly more competitive. We receive hundreds of applicants for 20 or so summer internship opportunities every year. These positions are scattered throughout the company in a variety of departments, including but not limited to:

    • Operations
    • Compliance/Legal
    • Technology
    • Marketing
    • Practice Management
    • User Experience
    • Wealth Management/Investment Management and Research
    • Retirement Consulting Services
    • Human Resources/Professional Development
    • Field Development and Transition
    • Finance
    • Data Integrity

    No coffee fetchers here!

    We bring on an intern only if a manager identifies an authentic need and commits to overseeing your professional development. Our interns do real work that adds value to the organization, which, in turn, helps you learn and grow.


    We squeeze in a lot over those few summer months. The program includes a three-day orientation, professional development classes, various networking opportunities and company events, contact with senior leadership, a group giving back initiative, and a Shark Tank-style project experience. (Fun is one of our core values, too.)


    Are you in?

    Along with your résumé, please include a cover letter (required) to help us understand your interest in a Commonwealth summer internship. We encourage you to note specific department(s) of interest in your cover letter, but we can’t guarantee that’s where you’ll be placed—or even interview. We do, however, promise you will learn a lot, no matter where in the organization you land.


    A great workplace—and a rewarding internship or job—is about so much more than the day-to-day tasks. If you have a positive, can-do, all-in attitude and are open to broadening your horizons, a Commonwealth internship just might be the right fit for you.


    The fine print

    After you submit your application, you will receive an e-mail confirmation.


    Due to the high volume of résumés we receive, it is not possible for us to personally respond to every applicant. If we feel you are a good match for one of our internship positions, we will be in touch.


    Commonwealth Financial Network® is an equal opportunity employer that is committed to a diverse workforce.
