Summer Internships at the Blackstone Group
The Blackstone Group hires interns for summer work terms. Interviews are scheduled during January and February and may be held on college campuses. If the company doesn’t visit a particular school, candidates for internship positions may be interviewed at a Blackstone Group office. Selected candidates are invited to a second-round interview at a Blackstone Group office to meet with team members.
Instructions for applying for an internship are available from career services offices at selected campuses. If the Blackstone Group will not be visiting a particular school, students may still apply by submitting a resume to the company by November of their junior year or the first year of their M.B.A. studies.
Jobs for Recent Grads
The Blackstone Group accepts applications from university students and recent grads for available positions. The first round of interviews is conducted in late September or early October. Current students may be interviewed on campus or at one of the Blackstone Group offices. In cases where a candidate is not attending a school that the company will be visiting, it will accept a resume submitted directly.
Experienced professionals who would like to be considered when positions come available are invited to submit an application directly. The company’s hiring needs vary from year to year, and when positions become available it considers resumes kept on file.
