Military Talent: Veteran Employment Transition (VET) Program and Hiring Forums

Program overview

During this 8-12 week spring internship program, you’ll develop an understanding of the day-to-day responsibilities of a full-time Wells Fargo team member as you deepen your professional experience and network by learning on the job and participating in special training opportunities. You’ll experience Wells Fargo’s culture first-hand, and see how our Vision, Values, & Goals drive how we work with our clients, and one another.

The program begins in early April with an intensive training and orientation session led by professional instructors and senior Wells Fargo team members. There, 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 of experienced Wells Fargo team members for on-the-job training, mentorship, and development that includes:

  • 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 speak to their take on the trends across the industry, support of our Vision, Values, & Goals, and advise on how to make the most of your internship experience.
  • Networking: Whether engaged in a veteran cohort experience, working side by side on the desk with your team, or learning about strategies from managers, the networking potential through your experience is great. Formal events throughout the program vary by line of business and host location.
