About You

Role Description

working closely with sales and traders

1. To what extent did you enjoy the virtual experience?

My experience was in the Paris office where I interned in a desk handling both tasks from sales to trading. The internship was a learning experience for me, and enabled me to gain an insight about the asset class I was working on. My manager was availeble to answer my queries 24/7 which I really appreciate.

One drawback: the internship was virtual meaning we had less face to face interaction and also provided room for some misunderstandings.
