Internships & Education
The World Trade Council recruits and mentors students from the top colleges and universities from the Chicago land area and around the world. Interns receive hands on experience working on real life entrepreneurial and research projects. The tasks they undergo help prepare them for the business world.
Taylor Street Archives
The World Trade Council works in conjunction with Taylor Street Archives to preserve, for posterity, the legacy of those immigrants and migrants who had lived the experience of the Legendary Taylor Street. It is important that we preserve the memory of those original immigrants who made this fateful journey and settled into Chicago’s Little Italy.
The World Trade Council (WTC) is an international research and consulting firm with a strong educational and financial services component. The consulting component assists business owners and entrepreneurs in developing and expanding their businesses. The educational component offers an entrepreneurial approach designed to complement the formal classroom programs intended to promote success in the international business world. Students with majors from various fields of study are assigned to a variety of research projects.
The financial services component is two pronged: 1) consulting with and coaching financial advisors on strategies to expand their businesses and improve their business plans and 2) advising retirees and other investors. Our monthly newsletter, The Financial Forum, includes a feature column specifically oriented to retirees and soon-to-be retirees. The Retirement Roadmap, updated regularly, contains articles on those issues that impact upon retirees and potential retirees.
Startup companies, entrepreneurs, and seasoned companies can all benefit from our services. Those services include, but are not limited to, business research, administrative service, marketing, virtual offices, and education.
Given the current economic climate and the complexities of choices facing the aging population, the WTC has taken the lead in making those choices transparent. The most vulnerable segment of American consumers are retirees and soon-to-be retirees seeking credible guidance as they enter into and through their retirement years.
To accommodate those needs, the WTC offers informational seminars/workshops for retirees.
