Internships with ING

Every year, more than 500 students from secondary vocational/higher education (HBO and WO level) join ING on an internship, either working within one of the many departments or conducting research for their graduation project. While there are of course no guarantees, in practice many former ING interns subsequently move into a starter’s role at ING or onto the ING International Talent Programme (traineeship). Whatever happens, an internship at ING is the ideal opportunity to meet a wide variety of people, start to build up your own network, and learn about many different aspects of business – which all adds up to a great start for the rest of your career!
