We aspire to cultivate performance and leadership through empowering our people, diversity of thought, and a commitment to an inclusive culture that engages in our global communities.

Position Description:

As PIMCO continues to expand it efforts in building and retaining a more diverse workforce in the Investment Management industry, we are looking to hire a talented professional in our NYC office to scale our early career diversity-focused programming. Three current projects this person will drive are our Career Exploration Program, the PIMCO Scholarship, and Girls Who Invest.

The Career Exploration Program launched in 2019 as a diversity-focused sophomore intern program. This program provides sophomore year college students the opportunity to learn about the asset management industry and feeds directly into our intern and full-time Analyst hiring.

The PIMCO Scholarship awards historically underrepresented groups interested in pursuing careers in financial services with one-time scholarships as an effort to aid their educational journeys.

The Girls Who Invest (GWI) program is driven by our Client Management and Marketing teams and host up to six sophomore interns a year. The program runs similarly to our summer intern program but is truncated and includes some Girls Who Invest specific programming.
