A varied day of different taught and networking sessions from many different departments within Rothschild & Co. There was an expectation to attend and get involved in the session to ensure you get the most out of the experience, although none of your interactions on the day officially count towards whether you get a summer internship.
Many new skills and lots of technical knowledge. Sessions led by external companies gave in-depth sessions to break the jargon that is used in the industry which enabled you to get more involved in the discussion with more technical knowledge and skills as the week progressed.
Open and welcoming as many of the people in the firm were originally on the programme themselves.
Greatly, I met new connections both in my age-group as well in the industry and they will certainly be people I keep in contact with over the course of my career.
Be yourself and apply early.
