Move Your Career Forward

Give yourself the chance to embrace opportunities and challenges in Western & Southern's Internship Program.

Our Student Internships Immerse You in Meaningful Projects as Soon as You Start

At Western & Southern, our internships provide you with the challenges, projects, connections and experiences that you need to enhance your personal growth as well as a potential opportunity with the company in the future. We have a high conversion rate of interns that move into a full time position with Western & Southern.

During an internship with us, you'll also have the chance to volunteer within the community, participate in corporate philanthropic events and attend sponsorship events. Downtown Cincinnati has been Western & Southern's home since we were founded here in 1888. You'll love working downtown! With that background, it is no surprise that our commitment to and enthusiasm for our city and the surrounding region runs deep. Today, we are one of Greater Cincinnati's most active corporate citizens and excited about living and doing business in this Ohio River town - a vibrant commercial crossroads in the heart of the country.


Your Opportunity to Give Back

As an intern, you'll have the chance to give back to the community in which we live, work and enjoy life. It's important to our company, and it's personally gratifying to our associates. They are passionate volunteers for nonprofit organizations across Greater Cincinnati.

Whether it's walking to support the fight against Multiple Sclerosis (our Willie's Walkers team is the nation's largest), biking to support breast cancer research at the University of Cincinnati Barrett Cancer Center or running in the Heart Mini Marathon, a team of Western & Southern associates is likely to be at the forefront of various charitable fundraising events throughout the city.

Our associates also work behind the scenes, serving as volunteer mentors in our Cincinnati Public Schools, serving on nonprofit boards and contributing their business expertise and contacts to further important community initiatives, like United Way and ArtsWave (Cincinnati's fine arts campaign).

Our Interview Process

Internship interviews typically take place September through October, depending on the position.

1. Phone Interview: Our recruiter contacts you for a short phone interview to see if the position and our company are a good match.

2. Hiring Manager Review: The hiring manager for the position will review your qualifications to ensure that you fit the needs of the position.

3. On-Site Interview: If you qualify for the position, we will schedule an in-person interview at our corporate headquarters located in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio.

4. Notification of Final Decision: Our recruiters will contact you regarding the final decision. If we select you for a position, we will work out specific internship details as the time arises, such as your start date, duration of your employment and more.
