Position Description:

NASDAQ OMX sponsors a 14 weeks Summer Internship Program in Australia. This is a paid summer internship program targeted to rising university juniors, seniors and graduate students who have shown a commitment to academic excellence and an interest in the financial services industry.
The 2014 Summer Internship Program will run from 24th of November 2014 to 27th February 2015.

The Summer Internship Program is an important element in NASDAQ OMX's efforts to recruit and develop a premier workforce. Our internships provide selected students with the opportunity to apply traditional academic classroom learning to actual work experience.
The Program is competitive, with a limited number of opportunities available each summer in NASDAQ OMX business units located in Sydney.

Summer Interns will work on assigned tasks or projects in a specific NASDAQ OMX business unit for a period of 14 weeks. Each Summer Intern's assignment and responsibilities will vary. In addition to their specific assignments, Summer Interns will have the opportunity to participate in training, seminars and other events designed to enhance their overall knowledge of the financial services industry. They meet with experts in their field and see their work make a difference.
