As a business analyst I was attended many SCRUM calls each week. I learnt about what my area of the bank does, and using this information I created workflows of the systems. I was in charge of the project backlog and suggested metrics to monitor team workflow. I also spent time doing self-guided learning to brush up on my knowledge and develop my skills.
I was given a lot of responsibility from the start. While on the internship I was involved in 2 live deals, where I performed credit analysis and due diligence on clients; additionally I was given the responsibility of monitoring existing credit transactions. It was a virtual internship but my team involved me in all group discussions.
Great experience! Although the internship has been virtual, the BofA team has been an amazing job ensuring an experience that was beyond expectations. The internship started with a very extensive training period, following 7 weeks of at-the-desk working duties. The tasks and assignments were not easy at first, but the team provided continuous guidance and help at every steps. The bank provided both a mentor and a buddy, who were fundamental in navigating the internship.
Was staffed on pitches (not live deals). Therefore heavy emphasis on helping analysts/associates generate presentations. Also some support in the excel work, finding financials for companies via companies house or otherwise, summarising research reports, taking notes in internal calls. The internship did also include two weeks of training and several social functions which were obviously important as well.
Internship was fully virtual due to COVID. Assisted on a couple of live deals as well as engaging with internal projects and ad hoc work as requested by analysts/associates over the 10 week internship. Interacted daily with deal-team members. Deal responsibilities were mainly process-type tasks (as opposed to technical) - reflecting the stage the deals were at.
