OVERVIEW  

 

Each year Equilar hires a class of talented, analytical, and motivated graduates to join our team and embark on their careers at Equilar. We are now recruiting for entry-level hires to start full-time in the summer or fall of 2023. To be eligible, you must have completed a college degree, maintained a solid track record of success, and be driven to start a career in business. You join Equilar as an Analyst on our Research team, but as a part of our Research Rotation Program, you are given the opportunity to participate in one of our career development paths in other departments at the company after your first year.

 

RESPONSIBILITIES  

 

You will spend your first year on the Research team building a foundation of knowledge in executive compensation and corporate governance; technical skills such as Excel and SQL; and professional skills such as communication, presentation, and career management. Your primary responsibility during this time is to build industry knowledge. This is done by reading through, interpreting, and breaking down data found in SEC filings. You will also use this knowledge to work on custom projects and content pieces. We track executive compensation, board of director compensation, equity, management, financial, and governance data.   

 

No matter what track you're on or where you end up, all employees at Equilar are expected to develop strong industry knowledge and stay on top of current trends. After the first year, you further define and develop your career via our Rotation Program and specialized training programs designed for each track.
