Paid Project Management/Business Technology Internships at South State Bank

What: Interning at South State Bank in the Enterprise Enablement and Execution Services (EEES) department entails becoming familiar with banking, finance, and business technology as much as it does being a member of the team. Applicants should be highly motivated self-starters, with excellent customer service and communication skills.

Intern position responsibilities include providing support to our Information Technology Team. The EEES Interns will also assist with project management tasks, documentation and process improvement opportunities. Interns at South State Bank should expect to manage their workload and timelines, including keeping up with and concisely communicating on their independent progress to their supervisor.


There are four intern positions available on four different EEES teams:

Project Management: Includes project/program management, strategic business partner relations, and project management lifecycle documentation audits

Business Analysis: Covers software testing (and interns may assist with testing environments), process improvement, gathering requirements for IT projects, and communicating and selling presentations

Governance: Includes implementing a program/project management tool, the project intake process, business cases and financials for IT projects, and project management analysis and support

Vendor Management: Will be most appealing to applicants interested in law, as it will involve reviewing contracts South State Bank has with its vendors

To Apply: Apply on South State Bank’s website.
