It was a virtual event (around 2 and a half hours) which gave us an insight into banking and how to learn about finance, such as preparing for an interview and what the industry entails.
I’ve learnt how to answer frequently used interview questions and how to tackle competency-based questions which was taught by MUFG’s business representatives.
The hosts were made explanations clear and many different roles within MUFG were explained in detail. Opportunities into MUFG were also explained, making the application process a little less daunting.
All the representatives were inclusive and welcoming - even in the breakout rooms. The company culture (as it was described) seems very warm and overall a brilliant working environment where colleagues are on-call to help you with anything.
I enjoyed the insight very much. It cleared up most of my doubts in pursuing a career in finance despite being on a science path currently. It also gave me a boost of self confidence as it helped me developed speaking skills and techniques used in interviews (in-person and online).
Do some research on the form, go above and beyond (e.g searching up their biggest competitors). I’d also advise someone who’s wishing to apply to MUFG to consider an internship or apprenticeship in order to work closely to the firm.
