US Students and Graduates

Working at HSBC in the USA means belonging to a diverse, global network and having the chance to gain a range of skills and experiences – way beyond banking.

A future for you

During an internship or graduate programme with us you’ll get the training, support and experience needed to build a successful career. With colleagues in the US from all sorts of backgrounds, plus more from markets all over the world, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to build and flex your global network. We accept students and graduates with any degree, from any background for a variety of internship and graduate programmes across all of our business lines plus our operational and IT teams. Join our Talent Community and we’ll inform you as opportunities arise.

Our global internship programmes typically run for eight to ten weeks and are mainly for students in their penultimate year of undergraduate study. Programmes are available across the different areas of the bank and take place in our major US locations. They will give you first-hand experience of what it’s like to work for an international bank and prepare you to join our Global Graduate Programme the following year.

Internship opportunities typically exist in Global Banking & Markets, Commercial Banking, and Wealth & Personal Banking.

Diversity and Inclusion

At HSBC in the USA, diversity and inclusion mean strength. By creating a diverse workforce that is engaged to deliver our strategy and help customers thrive wherever they are, connecting them to opportunities near and far, big and small, diversity provides HSBC with a competitive advantage and the promise of a more sustainable future.

We value difference

Having a variety of beliefs, upbringings, values and thoughts enables us to open many more doors, and achieve far more, than any of us ever could alone.

Welcoming neurodiversity

We welcome people with different ways of seeing the world.

Our 11 Employee Resource Groups and 3 Community Groups are part of global voluntary networks that bring together colleagues with shared characteristics and common interests.

Our employee networks

Our employees lead eight global networks to promote diversity within the bank. The conversations they have inform the actions we take as an organization and help us to create a culture where everyone feels included. The employee networks are part of our DNA. The first was founded in London in 1975 and we now have more than 150 groups all around the world.
