    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the virtual experience?
  • It was very well structured and organised. We initially had induction and training sessions during the first few weeks of the internship which helped us to get to know other interns and network within the Bank. We also had a buddy system in place with a grad at the Bank which was a really great means to support us.
