    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?

  • Excellent, very friendly and far more open than I expected. You could reach out to anyone regardless of seniority and they would be willing to chat.

  • 5/5

  • 7. Would you recommend Fidelity International to a friend?
  • Yes


  • 8. What advice would you give to others applying to Fidelity International
  • Be open when approaching the assessment centre. I knew little about the area before going in but no knowledge is really assumed. The most important factor seems to be your willingness to react to advice or comments and build that into your answers where necessary.
