It is great to see how ambitious and proactive you are regarding your career as a high school junior. Internship opportunities for high school students certainly exist, although the majority of these opportunities are available for college students. My best recommendation would be to talk to your guidance counselor or if there is anyone who teaches an economics/finance course at school, to see if they are aware of any internships that may exist. Additionally, there are options through college alumni networks that will allow students the opportunity to shadow a professional at work for a day. This could be something a counselor is aware of or you can reach out to local universities alumni relations departments to ask about those types of opportunities directly. There are also a number of online resources, whether they be job boards or NYC's government website that you can tailor your search around. And last but not least, utilize your network. Chances are you parents or family friends may know someone in the industry who can help.

Yes there are high school internships, but not as many as college internships that start from the sophomore year. I am in the Northern Virginia area and there are a limited ones available. The best way to approach them are through your high school or if you know any anyone in the industry. I would think that NYC being a hub for finance, there should be some other mechanism as getting in touch with the Chamber of Commerce to see if they can provide a list of companies who are looking for finance interns

Derek’s Answer

There aren't a ton of formal internships for high school students, unfortunately. My advice would be to seek out local financial companies, such as financial advisor groups or accounting firms and ask them if there is any opportunity to work in a small capacity for them. Often times to you will find that smaller business owners and firms in your area would love to mentor young men and women in the field of finance. You can find your way into their firm by doing simple operation work, associate level work and customer service. Take advantage of small firms in our area to learn from.
