Veterans Transition Assistance Program Summer Internship FAQs
Guggenheim values the wealth of knowledge and unique experience that veterans bring to the workplace. Today’s veterans face a variety of challenges while transitioning from military service to civilian life. Through the Veterans Transition Assistance Program (VTAP) internship, Guggenheim assists transitioning veterans (Veteran Associates) in obtaining many of the skills necessary for a career in the civilian workforce.

VTAP is a 10-week paid summer internship designed to provide Veteran Associates with substantive work experience, knowledge about the industry, and professional development opportunities that will enhance Veterans’ transition into the civilian workforce. In addition to managing the Veteran Associate’s day to day responsibilities, business unit participants will share their career experiences with the Veteran Associate and provide insights into our culture, services, and operations. Business units pair the Veteran Associate with a business unit liaison that assists in providing advice and guidance in the daily operations of the business unit.
