2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

Even if we did not have the opportunity to do actual work, having the chance to interact with senior speakers and engage in conversations made me feel valued. The interns were also involved in the CSR challenge which made me feel like I was part of the family.

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

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

We had a few development sessions on maximising our potential, networking and building sponsorship. These are things that I will definitely be using in my future career. Interacting with so many people virtually over this period of time has also made me much more comfortable talking to people and confident engaging in discussions

The Organisation

5. How well structured was the virtual experience?

It was very well structured. The first week was an introduction to the bank and really helped us to learn more about Natwest group and its culture. Then we had a focus week on our respective divisions which was also very well organised so that we could learn as much as we can our the roles and functions in the few days. We also had development sessions and Friday fun sessions. Very well structured!

6. How was the general atmosphere during your virtual experience?

It was very inclusive. There were interns from all over the world. The Early Careers team made us feel very comfortable. The senior speakers were enthusiastic about having discussions with us. We also had fun sessions over zoom with other interns. Overall, I would describe the atmosphere as being welcoming and fun.
