Role Description

Spring Intern, online due to Covid-19 crisis

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

The spring week was very insightful. It was done online because of the current crisis, and the presentations were very informative. I attended the GCIB and Global Markets seminars, and they were very helpful in order to understand better those two departments.

4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

The information we received was absolutely crucial. Being at an age where we are starting to figure out more clearly which career path is the most suitable for us, we managed to get an insight - even through our screens- of what a typical day in GCIB and Global Markets is.
