Fitch Ratings Brings Women Back to Work with CreditPath

Fitch Ratings announces Fitch CreditPath, a ten-week, full-time paid internship for financial services professionals ready to re-enter the workforce after an extended career break.

“There is an underutilized talent pool of women who, after stepping back from their career for family commitments or other personal reasons, want to get back to work and are looking for a supportive environment that sets them up for success,” said Jessalynn Moro, managing director and analytical sponsor of the program.

“I’ve been at Fitch my entire career. I know from experience that Fitch is a company that invests in its people – professionally, but also personally. I am excited to help bring women back to work into the Fitch family, augmenting our capabilities as a company and expanding their career opportunities.”

Running from September 25 through December 8, 2017 at Fitch Ratings’ U.S. Headquarters in New York City, Fitch CreditPath is a customized analytical program based on participants’ prior work experience that is geared towards facilitating workforce re-entry in credit analysis or related fields.

“We welcome women back to the workforce and are committed to their successful re-entry,” says Jamie Krulewitz, managing director and global head of talent who leads the program. “Fitch CreditPath will offer talented professionals an opportunity to become part of the Fitch community, and at the same time help expand and diversify our talent base.”

While no two candidates are alike, here are some of the qualities Fitch is looking for:

· Experience in credit, ratings, and/or financial analysis

· 4+ years of work experience prior to career break

· 3+ years career break

· Strong desire and ability to return to the workforce

· Strong written and verbal communication skills with an ability to convey complex ideas and solutions concisely and persuasively

· A collaborative mindset and ability to operate within departmental and company-wide initiatives, both on an individual basis and as part of a team

Upon completion, participants will have current analytical and technical skills that are in-demand and they will be well-positioned to compete for open analytical roles within Fitch.

If you are interested, we encourage you to apply early, as space is limited. Candidates will be evaluated on a rolling basis until all spots are filled.
