Cristo Rey Corporate Internship Program

Cabrera Capital Markets has been a proud sponsor of the Corporate Internship Program (CIP) for Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, an innovative work-study program for students which combines two commonly used business concepts, employee leasing and job sharing. This initiative gives students the means of financing their education. This program allows students to earn 70% of the cost of their education by working five full days each month in entry-level positions at corporations throughout downtown Chicago.

The CIP has evolved into an innovative means of providing students with crucial hands-on, white-collar work experience, while simultaneously empowering them to take an active part in financing a major portion of their education. As a result of working in a business environment, students acquire desirable job experience and marketable skills, develop a network of business contacts, gain exposure to a wide variety of career opportunities, refine a strong work ethic, and increase their self-esteem.
