Website Pendleton Community Bank

The PCB Internship is an exciting, engaging, and collaborative opportunity providing college students with a hands-on experience learning the variety of careers paths available in community banking through a departmental rotation format and strategic capstone project. Students selected engage directly with banking officers, executive and senior management, credit analyst, marketing programs, mortgage finance teams, commercial and retail banking groups, accounting team, human resources, training leaders, and much more throughout the 8-10-week paid internship. The role requires participation with other PCB interns in a team-oriented strategic capstone project. The project exists parallel with the departmental rotations and may have real world application. The final project will be presented to PCB Board of Directors, Executive, and Senior Management near the end of the internship.
