Summer 2021 Internships: Investing Team
The Motley Fool
 SC (South Carolina)

Want to spend your summer interning at a company that is consistently rated as one of the best places to work in the country? Is this a rhetorical question?

The Motley Fool is a multimedia financial services company that provides financial solutions for investors through various stock, investing, and personal finance services. We’ve been on the block for about 26 years and have honed a reputation for producing industry-leading work in a nationally recognized workplace. At the forefront of this charge is The Motley Fool’s Investing team.

If investing is your undying passion and you want to learn more in one summer than you ever have before, then step up to the plate, and tell us why you should land a spot among our Foolish ranks.

As an Investing Intern, you’ll hone your investing, analytical and communication chops through hands-on application under the guidance of our top Analysts. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in stock pitches, attend product meetings, write articles, and complete ad hoc projects like return attribution, sector/industry overviews, and competitor analysis. This internship isn’t about filing and binding reports -- we’re searching high and low for passionate investors who want to build upon their already impressive base of investing knowledge. Superior writing chops and the ability to seamlessly navigate financial statements will jump your application to the front of the line.

You’ll be challenged and mentored by some of our greatest investors all summer, and in turn, you’ll develop a business-focused, forward-thinking, and independent mindset that sets you apart from your peers. We’re excited to open our doors for Summer 2021 Investing Intern applicants, so send us your most Foolishly written cover letter and your ultra-impressive resume. We’re prepared to be wowed.
