American National Bank welcomed 5 interns from the Step-Up program to explore careers in banking for the summer. Step-Up is a community-based initiative of the Empowerment Network and the City of Omaha that is responsible for engaging more than 5,000 individuals ages 14 to 21 since 2008 in opportunities that provide work experience and job training. This program collaborates to bridge the employment gap and invest in the workforce of the future by recruiting, training, and preparing career-minded youth and young adults in our community to make positive life choices, empowering them to fully maximize their personal potential through educational and career opportunities.
The bank is a founding partner of the Step Up program, and one of nearly 70 employers around the community who partner in this important effort. Many of these students have expressed interest in the bank specifically because they have a desire to learn about the banking industry and managing money. Our interns will be working in departments of the bank such as IT, Indirect Lending, Talent Management, Corporate Finance and Treasury Management. We look forward to their contributions and providing a rewarding experience to help prepare them for their future.
