About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I really enjoyed my week with Rothschild, it gave me a good understanding of the firm's workplace culture and the kind of work that the bank's Global Financial Advisory Division did. The work shadowing opportunities and the numerous networking opportunities put in place (tea with directors, lunch with graduates) were excellent as it enabled me to meet and talk to people from all levels of the firms and from all divisions. Presentations given by directors and associates were practical and useful in helping me understand a lot more about the industry.
