Meet Your Team: The Analyst Development Program

Here at the Fool, analysts are rarely hired into senior positions from the get-go. In most cases, we’d rather scout talent and cultivate these individuals into the best Foolish investors. The Analyst Development Program is an opportunity for interested investors and analysts to apply for a full-time spot at the Fool. Anywhere from 8-10 individuals are accepted into this one-year program, which is instructed by senior Fool analysts.

These instructors follow a thoughtful Foolish investing syllabus, bringing together thinkers from diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise to have thought provoking discussions in a structured environment.Past courses have included Developing Mastery – You and Management; International: Translating TMF Overseas; Foolish Portfolio Management; Forecasting Revenue and Potential Business Outcomes; and Growth Investing Foolishly. The ADP program involves frequent student-to-student presentations, as well as instructor-to-student feedback.

After successfully passing the curriculum, ADP’ers are offered full-time positions at the Fool. If you’re interested in our Analyst Development Program, please keep an eye out on our Culture Blog insert link and Twitter feed (@FoolCulture link) for more information.
