About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

Due to UBS being one of the most interesting banking firms in my opinion, I was very curious and had kind of high expectations. These have been fully fulfilled. Of course, I cannot know about my opportunity cost but I could not really imagine any other case in which my time is better spent.

3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

During the insight, I received a lot of assistance from other people in my workplace. Even people I did not know were immediately offering their help once I looked a bit lost. On the contrary, people even approached me once they realised what my strengths are. Also employees of higher rank were very open and communicative to me.

I think one of the best thing about this insight at UBS was all the transferable skills that I have gained as a result of all the networking event and activities. Skills like communication skills due to several presentation or my networking skills have improved significantly by talking to senior managers of UBS.
