To build on our culture of learning, our mentorship program is a chance to develop your personal and professional growth by having a mentor share their knowledge and experiences. They’re dedicated to helping you reach your career goals, whether short-term, mid-career, or long-term.

Personalized, ongoing support means providing an opportunity to develop new skills and expertise, helping to set specific and achievable goals, enhancing networking opportunities, and increasing visibility at the Bank.

I was lucky enough to be paired up with a mentor at EQB and she has been instrumental in guiding me and helping me navigate my professional development. Not only has she shared professional development advice, but we have talked about things beyond a typical mentor/mentee relationship that were encouraged through the JEDI program - experiences as a woman in the workplace, microaggressions, traumas, racism, etc.

My summer internship was a great foray into the banking world. I was able to delve into commercial lending and truly feel like a contributing member of the underwriting team. I was continuously supported by my manager and fellow co-workers which helped to create a comprehensive learning experience. This ultimately allowed me to further pursue a career at Equitable Bank as an associate in the Leadership Development Program.

An internship at Equitable Bank is the ultimate learning experience. Not only did I learn about the banking industry, I was also encouraged to explore what interested me the most in order to build on related skills. From servicing to operations, I gained in-depth knowledge I don’t think I would have found at any other bank.
