Start Out Right: Smith Trader Development Program and Mentorship
When you join our team, our intensive Trader Development Program and mentorship will teach you the ropes without making you sink or swim. Our team of experienced traders is here to help you at each step of the way, offering years of experience and ingenuity as you learn basic skills and build up a command of sales, purchasing, and commodity expertise. By the end of our immersive, four-week Trader Development Program, you'll have the confidence to step out onto our sales floors and make your mark in Smith's global marketplace.
Even after graduation from our Trader Development Program, the support from Smith's experienced team doesn't stop. With an average employee tenure of seven years, many of our earliest team members are still actively helping Smith grow today – and helping new members of the company develop into key players on our global team.
