What is Raymond James Financial?

At Raymond James, their “about us” answer is really all about the client. The company prides themselves on being “a different kind of financial services firm” whose employees commit themselves to embracing long term planning, valuing methodical decision-making and remaining focused on what matters most: the client. Their client-focused approach has extended to serve more than 2.9 million client accounts through 7,100 financial advisers. Whoa! And these impeccable advisers can be found in the United States, Canada, and overseas serving corporations, institutions, and municipalities through significant capital markets, banking, and asset management.

The financial advisers at Raymond James hold true to their belief that  “No matter the business, we believe if we do what’s right for clients, we’ll help them achieve success while also realizing our own. It’s that simple”. And, guess what; through their annual Three-Day Immersion program, Raymond James is dedicated to helping YOU do the same and realize your potential. So, what’s the deal with this Immersion Program, what does it entail, and how can you get involved?


3-Day Immersion Program

I’m glad you asked! Each year, Raymond James hosts a three-day capital markets immersion program for college sophomores and juniors. It will take place at the Raymond James Headquarters in Florida. The program will last from May 15 - 18, 2017. This a unique opportunity that exposes students to all areas within capital markets, including Equity Research, Investment Banking and Institutional Sales. Additionally, the program affords you the opportunity to shadow capital market professionals, listen to company executives, and participate in “lunch and learns”. And as if access to top professionals at Raymond James Financial isn’t enough, you will also be given the opportunity to work in teams to complete a real-world case study project! Then, you will present your work to a panel of executives who will provide you with insightful feedback.

This program can be a gateway into your future career. If there is one thing the Career Center has taught me, it is the importance of seizing the day and grasping hold of every opportunity that comes my way. Top candidates in this three-day immersion program will be invited back for final interviews in the fall for either an internship (sophomores) or a full-time position (juniors).
