Emerging Talent Program

At Regions, the Emerging Talent Program is a career development program designed to refine technical knowledge, enhance personal talents, encourage collaboration and networking and demonstrate Regions values. Entry into the Emerging Talent Program is through either an internship or a full-time, line-of-business-specific development program. Most full-time development program positions will have a one- to two-year rotational aspect.

Program Overview

Joining the Regions Emerging Talent Program as an intern provides you an opportunity to see firsthand the job opportunities and culture Regions offers. As an intern, you will be provided with job skills and training, personal development and networking opportunities throughout a 10-week full time engagement.


If you have already completed an internship or want to jump right into your full-time career, the Emerging Talent Program is designed for you. The development program will provide learning opportunities focused on different career paths with a specific focus. In addition to learning the job-related skills, Emerging Talent hires will have the opportunity for personal development, as well as cross-functional networking and career coaching.
