"Throughout my internship I completed tasks that I now continue to do on a monthly basis for my job.
The knowledge I gained from completing reconciliations and other tasks in my internship allowed for
my transition to the full time position to be smooth."
"The Calamos internship program really prepared me for life in the real world. The collegial atmosphere
created a great working environment and the project driven workload taught me how to successfully
balance a full time schedule. I would not be where I'm at today without Calamos."

classroom. The Calamos Internship Program prepares you for life after college."
