Wells Fargo's Veteran Employment Transition (VET) Program
Wells Fargo believes every employee offers something extraordinary and we consider military experience a tremendous asset to our work environment. This drives our commitment to hire military veterans, veterans with disabilities, and active military Reserve and National Guard personnel. We pride ourselves on being a great place to work and to achieve work-life balance. As a Wells Fargo employee, you'll receive a variety of personalized benefits to support your health and well-being, retirement, financial security, and work-life needs, including time off to participate in community service activities that are meaningful to you.
As part of our 8-12 week internship program, you’ll gain access to unique training, networking, and professional development opportunities that will help you develop a deeper understanding of the professional abilities needed to be successful as a Wells Fargo employee.
The VET program for spring 2022 begins in early April with an intensive virtual training and orientation session led by professional instructors and senior members of the Wells Fargo team. You'll network with your peers and Wells Fargo leaders while you develop your skills and knowledge of our financial products and services. Then, you’ll join a team where you will receive on-the-job training, mentorship, and development opportunities that include:
- On-the-job experience: Working as part of a team within your business group, you will learn how to perform the daily tasks and see how our actions serve our internal and external customers as a contributor, listener and observer.
- Professional support: You will be matched with a mentor who will be your resource and coach, available to answer your questions, help you through challenging situations, and give you feedback throughout the course of the internship.
- Leadership insights: Wells Fargo’s leaders will provide insight on trends across the industry, our expectations, and how to make the most of your internship experience.
- Networking: Whether engaged in a veteran cohort experience, working with your team, or learning about strategies from managers, the networking potential through your experience is great.
2021 participating groups:
Wells Fargo has hired over 6,000 veterans since 2018 which highlights our commitment to and support for transitioning veterans. Opportunities will be available across the enterprise and will be identified as the process advances.

The internship is completely remote which allows participation from cities throughout the United States. Internship offers are made for a specific line of business and location based on candidate’s interest, experience, and business need.
After the internship
The goal of the program is to hire participants who meet performance expectations into similar full-time roles within Wells Fargo following the internship. The program participant should be prepared to work at the Wells Fargo location for which the offer is extended.
If you are a problem-solver who enjoys working in a fast-paced environment, working hard to achieve a goal, learning new things, and improving yourself, this program might be a good fit for you. In addition, successful intern candidates are team-players who work well in a collaborative environment and have strong situational analysis skills. All ranks are encouraged to apply as we are hiring at multiple levels.
Applicants for this program must be off of ACTIVE DUTY no later than April 4, 2022 (no exceptions - except terminal leave and/or traditional Guard or Reserve status, which are eligible). If you are chosen as a final candidate, you must be able to attend the virtual final round hiring event in order to be considered for the program (see details below).
The application link and instructions to apply will be available in this section November 23 – December 10, 2021.
VET alumni on their experiences
“I appreciated [Wells Fargo’s] true support to veterans. I cannot count how many organizations express support to veterans albeit without the culture and resources. There are many corporations that exaggerate their level of support to veterans as it is a popular philanthropic endeavor and a most worthy cause. However, Wells Fargo actually provided resources, funding and energy towards the veterans. I was truly impressed with Wells Fargo culture.”
"The VET program by far exceeded expectations I had going in. The people in charge of it were amazing, incredibly organized, knowledgeable and helpful in all situations."
"Orientation…starts the relationship process for the VET Interns. It was a key bonding and networking experience. It set the tone for what is expected and the culture of Wells Fargo."
