    About You

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • I really enjoyed being a part of Bloomberg insight week as we had the possibility to get a broad exposure both on company's activities and its employees, even if virtual. I believe the activities and demos we did were really helpful and engaging as it gets you an idea of how a real day at Bloomberg looks like.

    5/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • I feel really engaged during the week, especially because of the Q&A sessions where we had the possibility to talk more with team leaders. Also, the possibility to use the Terminal enabled us to connect directly to each employee in few minutes.

    5/5

  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  • We have been followed a lot during the week activities and we received lots of Training Sessions, that turned out to be really useful in order to better deal with the different activities. We also received lot of help during project time.

    5/5

  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I think the knowledge we built in this week would be very useful in our uni studies and also for our future career, as the Bloomberg Terminal is the platform that most of financial players currently use, so knowing how it functions is definetely an advantage for us.

    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • Even if it had to be virtual, the insight week was really well organised, as we had almost no time wasted and full-time activities. We got an in-depht exposure to every department on the company, not only the ones we have applied for.

    5/5

  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  • I found the other insighters and the TLs really enjoyable, also the employees we talked to really reflected Bloomberg culture, as collaboration is the first thing you notice about them. You're free to ask any stupid question you might have to any employee, thanks to the Instant chat.

  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • I think it's good to have a broad exposure to the financial industry at first, and which better way rather then exploring it through Bloomberg Terminal?

    5/5

    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  • No payments because it was virtual

  • I found the networking sessions with the Summer interns in particular really inspiring.

    3/5

  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

    5/5

  • 15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  • Definetely! even if you're not interested in the fintech or financial industry, this week is really helpful to get a broad knowledge of it, and full of interesting activities where you can test yourself.
