Former Retirement Plan Services Intern at Vanguard
about 2 years ago
You have weeks of classroom training learning about 401ks/institutional plans and then spend about half of your time taking inbound phone calls to help clients service their accounts. The other half of the time is spent learning about the different groups in Vanguard and working on a project that is presented to senior management for potential implementation. This is a newer internship at Vanguard, so there will most likely be some changes to the program, and you will probably get some input as to how you spend your time. I chose to spend all of my lunches in meetings with colleagues and management to network, learn and get advice. There are lots of opportunities if you seek them.
