Banking giant UBS is coordinating a program to help female undergraduates get ready to look for internships. Emily Bennington, an author and career expert who has been featured in major broadcast and print media, will help female college juniors to refine their personal brand and prepare for the internship search. Part of the program also will be devoted to networking with women from multiple UBS businesses.

Women in the Class of 2014 who have a minimum GPA of 3.0 may apply at www.ubs.com/graduates, using the job reference number 87907BR. Applicants will be asked to submit a résumé and an essay of no more than 500 words on this topic: “How would you describe your personal brand? Consider the following: how you market yourself to others, how you position yourself for success, and/or what reputation you want to define you as a professional.” The deadline is September 14.
