Career paths

We believe that what makes your job meaningful is not only what we invest in it, but also what you invest in it. The more initiative you take, the more you take your own decisions and steer your own career, the more you will benefit from your actions.

This is important for us, because here is another thing we believe in:

What you do will ultimately turn into who you are.


Therefore, you have a range of different options to launch your career with Erste Asset Management. Here are a few typical scenarios of what we may be able to expect from each other:

Summer internship

Duration: 2-3 months in summer (July – September)

Our summer internship is aimed at motivated students who want to gain their first professional experience at Austria’s leading asset manager. Within the framework of the programme you will not only get to know the daily routine on the job, you will assume responsibility and get the chance to network. Even the management board and mid-level management will be happy to take the time and talk about their personal career path with the summer interns during a fireside chat.   

A summer internship can be organised during the months of July, August, and September for at least two, preferably three months with any of the departments of Erste Asset Management according to requirements. We are looking forward to your support!
