  • virtual santander work experience

    I really enjoyed this Santander work experience course because the Santander team was very welcoming and answered all our questions and queries with clarity. Also, I have always been interested in how a bank works and now the experience has taught me the basis of a bank and how it operates such as, credit cards and scores, mortgages, insurance etc. The whole experience was very intellectual and enjoyable because the whole group got involved in conversations and we all had to plan our own dream bank and present it to the group, receiving constructive criticism and commendation. In order to make it a 10/10 rating, perhaps we could of been separated into mini breakout rooms for 15 minutes and share our ideas as a small group, to evaluate our ideas, however overall it was a fantastic work experience and the team made sure to give us many breaks so that we stay refreshed and alert....
