Calling all interns. Want a high-flying role in a fantastic venue in the CBD over summer?

The Fintern Fever event happened on the 25th November.
The internship positions are now currently being filled.
Thanks to our fantastic partners and all the students and startups involved.

The Event

Leading Fintech hub, Stone & Chalk, is hosting a Summer Fintech internship program. The first event is a Fintech Fever speed dating event with 20-30 Fintech startups.

Here’s your chance to pitch to them why you should be their summer intern.

As part of the Fintern experience, interns will be provided with mentoring, networking opportunities, and tailored seminars over the summer. To complement the hands-on work experience with one of Sydney’s dynamic start-ups, the Fintern program will help build and showcase your leadership skills, and outline career pathways into the start-up scene.

We are looking for university students with a range of skills in business, commerce, coding, developing websites, creating web content, social media, graphic design, advanced excel, business modelling and market research.

The internships will range from single, one-off projects (lasting a few weeks) to 2-3 months throughout summer to ongoing opportunities. Remuneration will be discussed with individual employers. Startups are uploading opportunities daily so register now on Ribit.
First in best dressed to apply for opportunities as they go live.

Please note, the final cut off for registration is 20th November 2015.
