The week is split into 3 days spent working on sales projects/campaigns, and 2 days spent in finance-specific training and analytics tasks.
* soft skills * sales skills * objection handling * finance-specific knowledge * market-player training * networking skills * ability to work in 3 different languages
I was given a lot of responsibility, which both surprised and excited me. I was made to feel part of the team from day 1 and was given lots of autonomy in managing my time across the projects I was working on. I was given many opportunities to contribute to the business in a different ways and truly appreciated being immersed in the outstanding business culture.
I was connected with 3 mentors, all of whom were supportive, involved, and engaged from before the internship even started, and all the way through the process. Aside from my mentors, my team leaders, managers, HR contacts, and other members of staff were all supportive and approachable. Overall, I felt very supported throughout.
The company culture was like nothing I have experienced elsewhere - in all the best ways! I found that everyone I interacted with embodied the culture of openness, collaboration, and giving back that the business champions. There are many associations, communities, and activities available to get involved in, too!
I have truly loved my time here. It has been a career-changing (and life-changing!) summer.
Research the business offering (aside from just the terminal!) and understand how the company gives back to the world. The culture is a huge part of what makes Bloomberg special. And don't be put off by a potential lack of technical skills / financial background - these can be learned!
