    First Citizens Bank’s Equipment Finance division is looking for motivated future leaders beginning their careers to join its rotational development program (to begin on a full-time basis post-graduation).

In addition to the project, each associate will work with a team to build their skills through tangible experiences in a leading equipment finance organization.
