The Associate Program in the division of Operations & Technology at Freddie Mac is an opportunity for you to experience first-hand what it’s like to work in an IT environment at a large financial organization. During the program, you’ll work on critical projects in a variety of different areas, all of which have a direct impact on our ability to achieve our goals. You’ll be given unbelievable opportunities to take on new and interesting challenges, and in the process you’ll gain valuable experience to take with you as you begin your career. In addition, you’ll be part of our mission to make housing in America more affordable – thereby touching the lives of people across the nation.
“Explore several different areas before deciding on your focus…”
The Associate Program in Business Technology means you’ll spend your first 18 months at Freddie Mac rotating through different areas of IT. Approximately every six months, you’ll move on to another position. You might spend your first six months as a programmer, your second six months as a tester, and your third as a database administrator. Above all, you’ll be focused on learning Freddie Mac’s technological needs and developing new systems to meet those needs. During this process, you’ll gain vast amounts of knowledge and experience that will prepare you for a future in technology.

In addition, you’ll collaborate with some of the most talented individuals in financial technology, all of whom are ready and willing to teach you what they know and give you advice about your future. At the end of the program, you’ll sit down with department managers to determine the best direction for your career, and where your talents will be the most beneficial.
“You’ll be able to build a strong network and team…”
Freddie Mac is a collaborative environment where teamwork is part of the natural way of doing things. One of the benefits of a rotation program is that you’ll be able to develop a very strong peer network across various areas of our division. As a result, you’ll always feel like you have support and encouragement from those around you. Because Freddie Mac employees are united by our mission of making home possible, they are eager to help each other and do whatever it takes to make sure that mission is achieved.
“There’s a range of activities to get involved and help others…”
At Freddie Mac, our employees rally behind our mission and are proud that what they are doing will help more people become homeowners. Not only are they contributing through the work they do every day, but they are also given many opportunities to donate their time and effort through volunteer work. Whether it’s through Habitat for Humanity or at a local shelter, they always know they are making an impact that is truly appreciated.
The candidates we seek must have…
• Bachelor’s degree in computer science, IT, IS, Business Administration, Liberal Arts, or related discipline
• Exceptional quantitative, analytical and leadership skills
• Previous intern experience
• Strong interest in pursuing a challenging career in technology
• Minimum 3.0 GPA
• Ability to begin full-time employment by January 12, 2009 or June 29, 2009.
