Centerview Partners Information Session

Centerview Partners is committed to the success of the companies it works with, and believes this commitment provides meaningful rewards to the people of Centerview. By creating opportunities to advance rapidly while always preserving the firm’s reputation in the marketplace, Centerview Partners is quickly establishing itself among the top-tier of financial advisory firms, and it is consistently ranked as one of the top banking employers to work for in Vault.com’s annual survey.

Centerview believes in bringing on the most-talented people and offering them the opportunity for a long term career. The firm offers a summer internship to college juniors, and hires full time analysts who start after college graduation. Unlike many other investment banking firms, Centerview’s hope is that analysts will choose to stay on beyond their analyst years. As a result, senior staff members commit additional resources to provide an analyst experience that is head and shoulders above traditional two-year programs.
