The Peoples Professional Development Associate Program (PDA) provides a rare opportunity for recent college graduates to immerse themselves in the financial industry and gain valuable real-world experience.
As part of the program, you will be paired with a member of the Peoples Bank Executive Management Team and a former professional development associate who will serve as your mentors throughout the program.
Throughout the program, you will get hands-on management training in many areas of the bank’s operation. From sales training to discipline-specific training in banking, investments, lending, and insurance, the program will prepare you to excel as a knowledgeable and well-rounded manager.
The program is structured around a series of rotations in various areas of the company. These rotations give you a first-hand look at how Peoples operates within each of its departments and as a whole.
You will be given the best training possible to prepare you for a career in the financial industry. At the end of your training, you will be qualified to serve in a customer-facing or operationally focused role. The program generally places candidates as branch managers or strategic analysts where further development and training will prepare you for a variety of careers in the financial services industry. The program is designed to develop your talent by providing you a foundation of skills and experiences that will help you shape your lifelong career.
