  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • The day was divided where most days in the morning we began with a series of talks and conversations with various employees at EY we then spent the afternoon working with a group of students on a case study that was presented to us. We then had to present our findings nearer the end of the 2 weeks to a panel of mentors.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • I have developed my presentation as well as networking skills. Being pushed into an environment where we were constantly speaking with high net worth professionals, I had to consistently ask questions to gain as much insight into the profession. We spoke with mentors who also taught us etiquette of speaking to clients in client meetings.
