Role Description

This program introduced me to the wide range of careers available in an investment bank from Corporate Banking to Sales & Trading to Technology, with a focus on the Investment Banking division and the Global Markets division.

    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • Because the internship was online, a typical day would entail video presentations about the different divisions in the bank, break out rooms to get to know employees, and debates about current topics. At the end of the week I got to interview for a place in the 2022 summer internship.

  • Yes, I've deepened my knowledge of finance and banking and I've discovered new things that I can further explore; I've also got the opportunity to be a spokesperson for my team during a debate session.
