I got an introduction of the Investment banking and Global Market's division. We had a virtual introduction, where we would listen to workers explaining their day-today roles, what they did on a daily basis and what excited them to work at the Bank of America.
We got several talks and pannels from bank of america employees. The first day we got outsourced training regarding the banking industry which was a great introduction to the program. The rest of the days consisted in pannels from employees on the diferent divisions, interactive activities and soft skill training sessions. Lastly, during the evening some online social activities were organised. We got pannels from our two divisions of choice, so different divisions involved different activities.
Each day we had the opportunity to hear from people working at the firm. We learnt about Bank of America, about our chosen two lines of business and about how we can improve our networking skills and build a personal brand. We also had the opportunity to network with other participants and people at the bank. The program was virtual but there were activities throughout the day from 9-5 and the program was very interactive.
Taking part in informative interactive presentations from various business areas in the bank. There were also social events, like musical bingo. General skills sessions around personal branding and standing out in a virtual environment were particularly useful and current.
This week was very well organised, we were given a detailed schedule of sessions: lectures, networking sessions with bank employees, between other candidates, entertainment sessions. Everything was done to have a great time learning even remotely.
The insight was fully virtual. The day would start at 9.30 with an insight into the division you chose. We were given the option of selecting a second division, which took place the following day. Each day also had interesting and very useful presentations on motivation, personal branding, networking, diversity & inclusion.... The day would end with a fun social activity. The last day was the assessment day to progress to a summer internship.
Because the internship was online, a typical day would entail video presentations about the different divisions in the bank, break out rooms to get to know employees, and debates about current topics. At the end of the week I got to interview for a place in the 2022 summer internship.
Each day had a variety of different sessions. Some days were more talk-based e.g. on Impact Investing and Diversity, others consisted of group discussions and presentations. There was also a mix of technical sessions related to the industry and more social events like Bingo.
Multiple workshops and sessions regarding the employee based community and inclusive culture. Furthermore, time was dedicated towards two of your chosen lines of business with real exposure to how the department works on a daily basis. Senior members were present throughout in addition to an insightful graduate panel.
