Internship Program

The Golden 1 Internship Program offers on-the-job training experience for college students.

Thank you for your interest in Golden 1 Credit Union’s Internship Program. The program is designed to provide hands-on business experience with an interactive curriculum and many group projects. 

Unfortunately, Golden 1 has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Internship Program. The social distancing guidelines currently in place restrict our ability to provide an engaging experience, and we want to protect the health of our interns.

For more than 85 years, Golden 1 has been and continues to be a strong and stable credit union. We are committed to the well-being of our members, employees, and community, which includes you. We invite you to visit our website for future opportunities through Golden 1.

We appreciate your understanding.


Internship Program students will have the opportunity to:

Get exposure to the credit union industry
Apply classroom lessons to the real world
Learn more about their strengths and abilities
Network with industry professionals
Participate in exciting credit union and community events
Attend meetings with credit union executives


Interns will gain valuable credit union knowledge and work experience over nine weeks while getting paid.
