The insight was very enjoyable, and there was a variety of sessions available including networking with different departments of the firm.
The Graduate Recruitment team made sure that we all felt valued during the internship. We were given many opportunities to ask questions to individuals at the firm. We also had smaller group networking sessions so that we could ask more questions. Also, the trainee pub quiz on the first evening of the internship made everyone feel involved and welcome.
We were always given the opportunity to ask questions, and Graduate Recruitment maintained contact with us over zoom, email and phone throughout the internship to make sure that we were guided throughout it.
