Downey Federal Credit Union believes in financial education, especially for our younger community members. One of the ways to give them the opportunity to learn responsible financial management at an early age, is with an internship at the Credit Union.
Each year, we offer internships with our Marketing Department. Senior students from any Downey Unified School District High School are encouraged to apply. Interns perform a large variety of support functions within the Credit Union, and will have the opportunity to participate in a 1-week training course, covering basic banking principals, how a credit union works, and DFCU’s products and services. Selected candidates will learn how to be a professional in an office environment, and hone in on valuable skills they can take with them to college and beyond.
Applications are taken in May and June, for internships beginning in July each year. Internships are paid positions and are for a 12-month period.
