We’re Consumers Credit Union and our mission is to empower our members to live better lives.
We’re a financial institution just like a bank, except not exactly. Banks have customers, but because we’re a not-for-profit, member-owned credit union, we have members. And because we’re not a bank, we don’t drive up profits just because shareholders demand it. Instead, we focus on driving up member happiness through low loan rates, high deposit rates and low- or no-fee products and services. We focus on things like transparency, simplicity, helpfulness, integrity, positivity and inclusion – and we always put our members first.
We serve nearly 172,000 members and have over $2.46 billion in assets. We employ nearly 500 people in the Chicago area and have 18 branch locations in Illinois. We’re one of the largest and fastest growing credit unions in Illinois. And, we’re top-rated too! Forbes magazine has named us one of “America’s Best Credit Unions”.
Every year we look for a diverse group of hardworking students to join our IGNITE Intern Program. What does IGNITE mean to us and what can you expect? Interns Growing, Networking and Innovating through Transformational Experiences.
We hire college students because we believe in fresh ideas. These are not paper pushing, copy making internships. We provide real work experience to our Interns. During the Program you will interact with and get exposure to multiple departments and leaders throughout the Credit Union.
You’ll experience our awesome team atmosphere by working with other Interns on projects, volunteering in the community, and participating in events and educational sessions. Our intent is to create a future career path for students who have an interest in the financial services industry. IGNITE is designed to expose you to a variety of opportunities while fostering growth and learning.

- Students who are currently attending an accredited college or university
- Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors working toward a Bachelor’s Degree in Business or a related field. Juniors and Seniors preferred!
- Minimum 3.0 GPA
- Ability to work full time hours for the summer (40 hrs/week, generally 8:00-5:00 Monday-Friday) and to be based in Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin for the duration of the 12-week program
