Our internship program is a robust experience that offers exposure to meaningful work, and real projects. All interns are invited to our corporate headquarters for a two-day welcome celebration that includes an intern-exclusive networking dinner and an introduction to Baird’s unique culture. Throughout the summer, interns participate in multiple lunch and learns, a Brewer’s game at Miller Park, Baird Nite at the Zoo, and many other social and professional development events. Interns have the opportunity to take a paid day off to volunteer in the community through our Baird Cares program and are eligible to apply for $10,000 in scholarships. We also have a formal mentoring program that gives interns an opportunity to network and learn about all areas of the firm.

Many of our interns work in our core business areas:

Interns are also welcomed within our Corporate Resources Group, which is made up of departments including:

In addition to our university relationships, we have fostered relationships with Cristo Rey Jesuit High School and Carmen High School of Science and Technology to educate high school students about corporate life in the financial services industry.

Baird’s formal intern program is held during the summer, although we recruit interns throughout the year. Some interns go on to join Baird as full-time associates, bringing their knowledge and talent to one of FORTUNE magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For®.
