It was a very informative two-days packed with presentations, networing events, job shadowings, etc. Having done job shadowing both in the middle and back offices, I really got a feel of what it is like working in Operations & Business Services.
Really enjoyable - the team I was working in was brilliant, relaxed but professional, and the work was interesting, though at times I found some specifics aspects of the project to be repetitive and dull. A brilliant window into Asset Management. There were only 20 interns in total, so enough people to find others with common interests, whilst feeling close as a cohort.
Whilst it was a slow start (being brought in to a finance position at half end certainly didn't help) the internship was a positive experience. The area I was in was complex in nature but very interesting and engaging. Socially it was also a very positive experience. There was several events organised and a very positive atmosphere for getting acquainted with others was created.
