Getting back into work after an extended career break or transitioning from military service can be an intimidating time. At Fitch Ratings, we value the diverse experiences and perspectives that life outside of the office can bring to our workplace. We call it human insight.


Fitch CreditPath is a full-time internship program that welcomes financial services professionals who are ready to re-enter the workforce in credit analysis, macro research and technical related fields including software engineering after an extended break from their careers.


This year, we have opened CreditPath to US Military Veterans.  Given the incredible platform and opportunities that CreditPath created for our former participants, we are confident that this program can also benefit veterans who are transitioning to the corporate environment. 

Credit Training for Returning Professionals:

CreditPath has a customized curriculum that covers credit analysis on the Ratings side and macro analysis research on the Solutions side, as well as professional skills like communication and collaboration. Because of Fitch’s size and scale, we are able to offer our participants access to existing training platforms such as Fitch Credit Academy. Our training is designed to offer a customized experience, based on each participant’s unique background and needs, to supplement the core CreditPath curriculum.

Upon completion of the program, participants will be current on analytical, technical and market developments, and positioned to apply for an on-going analytical role within Fitch.

Training for Transitioning Veterans:

This program offers on the job training while receiving specialized veteran transition curriculum. Veterans will have a stimulating and rewarding intern experience that provides acclimation support, coaching and a dedicated program manager.
