Despite the financial meltdown in 2008, internships with banks are booming, says Yazad Dalal, executive vice president of Vault.com, a career counseling Web site with a database of more than 800 internships.

"Even now, the internships that tend to pay the most are in the financial sector," Dalal says. "We're listing more than 50 (paid) internships in that category and we're seeing more coming in."

Even with banks downsizing, the Bureau of Labor Statistics lists financial examiner as the nation's fifth fastest-growing occupation, behind biomedical engineers, information technology workers, home health aides and personal care aides.

Financial internships are not only growing, they also are lucrative, Dalal says. Students who land an internship with firms like New York investment banks Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. can expect to rake in $30 or more an hour. Start your search by targeting local and national banks and by searching job-hunting sites like Monster.com.
