Application Deadline: Barclays ModernGuild Finance Accelerator Program for Freshman Diversity Candidates

Barclays is partnering with ModernGuild to offer ambitious, talented freshmen the chance to participate in an exclusive four-week training program that will help them learn the skills needed for a successful career in investment banking or sales and trading. Participants spend several hours a week in one-on-one virtual training sessions with a coach working on rapid skill-acquisition exercises and networking with Barclays’ professionals. The result? Participants will gain the core skills, self-confidence, and relationships to land their dream jobs. In fact, after successful completion of the program, participants will be invited to interview with Barclays for their highly competitive 2018 summer internship program.

As one of Barclays' diversity programs, the ModernGuild Finance Accelerator is designed to attract and educate high-achieving, underrepresented candidates, including female, Black, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, and LGBTQIA students, as well as veterans and students with disabilities. 

To participate, apply by April 20, 2017. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to apply ahead of the deadline. To learn more about the program and how to apply, visit Barclays' Diversity Programs page.
