Careers & Internships

SDS currently has no full time positions open.

SDS offers internship positions for students who are passionate about learning and developing skills related to investment management and community and economic development. Interns work within our Investment Management, Community Development or SDS Advantage divisions based on their skills and preferences.  SDS interns work on impactful projects while receiving training and developing skills that will help build future careers. Our program is designed to be mutually beneficial by giving young professionals meaningful work opportunities while adding value to our clients and company.  Ms. La Franchi developed SDS’ program based on her own experience working in more than a half-dozen paid and unpaid internships and as a mentor.  She strongly believes early career opportunities help create future fund managers and community and economic development leaders.

"Working at SDS has been my most valuable internship experience, and I have enjoyed it immensely. The people are hardworking, passionate about what they do, and eager to help interns learn and gain experience.  SDS allows their interns to dive into the work the company is doing, and I was able to learn a lot about impact investing and how these funds operate."
