Consumer Lending Intern Program

Consumer Lending Intern Program (CLIP)

In the fall of each year, the Wells Fargo Consumer Lending Internship Program (CLIP) selects rising seniors from participating colleges and universities to join a ten-week paid summer internship between their junior and senior years. CLIP is designed to help students apply what they’ve learned in their academic lives to the business world, assess their talents and strengths, and prepare for a post-graduation career at Wells Fargo.

CLIP internships begin in June with a weeklong orientation and training event followed by formal training, including one-to-one mentoring and our exclusive Virtual Executive Speaker Series. Interns learn about the financial services industry, gain knowledge about key early talent positions, network with leaders, and tackle meaningful projects while partnering with team members in our Consumer Lending organization. Best of all, interns who excel in their CLIP assignments are hired as full-time team members with start dates deferred until after college graduation. CLIP interns gain in-depth experience as a consumer lending professional by working as part of a high-performing team, actively participating in the team’s day-to-day activities and projects, and building customer service and problem-solving skills.
