I learned how Bloomberg uses dynamic data and analysis to deliver accurate, real-time business and market information to help its customers make financial decisions. Employees from various departments provided insight on their departments' objectives and how they work towards achieving their objectives. Successful past interns discussed their experiences and how they stood out during their internships. I did practical exercises and fun activities on the Bloomberg Terminal. Business Leaders spoke about their experiences.
I learned new skills. I was certified at Financial Market Concepts and familiarised myself with the Bloomberg Terminal by using over 100 of its functions. I developed existing skills by practising impromptu speaking and prepared presentation speaking. I extended existing skills on teamwork and project management by executing a project.
At the end of the week I have clear understanding about the business and what working for Sales, Analytics and Global Data at Bloomberg entails. I would have like an informational interview with one of the Team Leaders of the Department (Global Data) that I am interested in.
The general atmosphere was friendly but professional. The Bloomberg team provided tireless support on technical and knowledge level to all participants. They were available to provide advice and guidance at first call, making all participants feel welcome and included. Inclusiveness was particularly felt when technology failed a few of us. Nobody was left out or behind. All in all a very satisfying experience.
All in all it was a very satisfying event. I am pleased I was invited to it.
Get experience on the Bloomberg Terminal and understand on practical level how all the news and analyses on it link to getting insight on how the financial markets are performing.
