  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • Bloomberg employees are extremely friendly and nice. Everyone is ready to help and it is very easy to reach them to have a chat (even in a virtual environment :) ). Bloomberg interns are extremely nice and we created a very nice group! We had a lot of fun and everyone was always available to help the others.

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • I was fully supported by my two mentors, one from Analytics and one from Sales. They were always available to help me out. They also helped me for my group projects. I also received full support from my managers, one from Analytics and one from Sales. They have been a point of contact and support during the whole internship.

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • During the day we were extremely busy which was very important especially in a virtual environment. The first few weeks we had no free time and we had sessions and trainings the whole day. The last week we had some more free time but, because of the very tight first weeks, we were able to manage it at the best timing. For follow up meetings and shadow session, we had to organize them after work.

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • You are given a lot of responsibility as soon as you start the internship. You will start calling clients since the second week and this gives you a lot of responsibilities because you are representing Bloomberg.

    5/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • During the internship, I have improved my time management skills especially when having thigh deadlines. I have also improved my group working skills. I learnt how to be efficient and effective in what I am doing. These are all fundamentals skills that are extremely transferable to studies and beyond
