Recognizing this unique situation, NYSE Euronext is launching an internship program exclusively for veterans. The Veteran’s Associate Program (VAP) will “provide meaningful, professional assignments to veterans” so that they may “learn about NYSE Euronext and its business through hands-on work assignments.” The eight-week program will also include a comprehensive educational component as well as access to senior executives at the Exchange. Marshall Carter himself serves as the program’s Executive Advisor.
Lisa Dzintars-Pahwul, Managing Director of Human Resources at NYSE Euronext and head of the Veteran Associate Program says, “The VAP is separate from the NYSE Euronext Summer Intern Program because veterans bring a set of skills, life experiences and circumstances to a program such as this that are quite different from our interns.”
Jesse Friszell, an Iraq war veteran and Columbia University student, thinks this program is exactly what veterans need, “This is a pretty amazing thing because it provides a backdoor for returning veterans into a world that seems completely divorced from the military.”Page 3 of 5 | Prev Page | Next Page
