    About You

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy the virtual experience?
  • I had a great time with this internship because all the full timers went above and beyond to ensure that we always felt like we were being taken care of and a part of the company. A lot of the work could be done virtually, we got to shadow a lot of meetings that would have been held in Paris - for me this was a great bonus. Working from home is not easy but I felt very supported.

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • I appreciated how much effort was put into training me and making sure I understood the product, values and clients. I received regular feedback from my line managers and other people I worked with, which made me feel like I not only was making valuable contributions, but could learn more as I went along. I have allowed for a lot of leads to be input and follow up sessions to take place. Overall, I feel like the company has had a good return on the investment in me.

    5/5

  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the virtual experience?
  • Lots of guidance to start with during training, we were in conference calls most of the time. Transitioning out of this was challenging because I felt like I didn't know what to do with myself - however, help was always there for me when I asked for it. I also appreciated that everyone I asked took time to see me and discuss their work, so I felt like I was a true part of the company.

  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • The skills I have developed will not be particularly useful to my degree since it is two different universes. However, I will be using these for my whole life - to network with valuable connections, to go on and work in the industry I am interested in, and to make sure I always get the help I need. This was a very performative job and I came into it during my time within the company.

    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the virtual experience?
  • The training sessions were a bit long but really really informative. Transitioning out of this was challenging in the short term because going from classrooms to client calls is radically different - however I felt overall that the coordinators had planned this out very thoughtfully and carefully, which made me feel like I was a true employee by the end of my time in the company. I would say that everyone is very busy and they did express that they would have been able to spend more time with me in the office - which I think is a side effect of working from home.

  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your virtual experience?
  • Every one was so warm, friendly and welcoming! I feel like I have truly connected with the employees and learned a lot about the culture and values of the company. These made me feel very included and like I had found a good group of people to be with. However, what was missing was the ability to spend time with my peers and make the most of chatting during down time - not much to do about this virtually though.

  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • The company went above and beyond to invest in my training, taking two full weeks and then two days a week for five weeks to train us. I also learnt a lot from shadowing other employees.

    3/5

  • 8. To what extent did the virtual experience help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  • I really felt the company values and points of pride from speaking to employees. I agree with them that it is not easy to convey these via video call, but they have put in a lot of effort and I can fully imagine what it would be like to be in their workplace. Overall, I understand what the various departments do and what I would like to get out of a full time role in the company.

    5/5

  • 9. How much did the virtual experience help you in understanding the company culture?
  • By catching up with people regularly and learning a lot about the values, this was very clear to me.

    5/5

  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • Very valuable - had to be proactive in getting these things myself, but I think this is a part of what makes people successful within the company. I think that I would take a job here if I was offered one, and would know what my first few steps in the company would be once I had joined. I was encouraged to share these ideas and to follow in these steps in the future, which was great.

    5/5

    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  • Good pay, excellent WFH fund too.


  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • Absolutely, I was encouraged to reach out and book session with people to ask more about their roles

    5/5

  • 13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  • Good, but online it is difficult because you already spend so much time on video call that it is not motivating to attend after a day at work for the socials. Lots of networking possible though

    4/5

  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • Yes - I was told about the volunteering and opportunities that people have.

    5/5

  • 15. Would you recommend this virtual experience to a friend?
  • I would say to go for Bloomberg but that being in the office would be probably much better!
