The Role

Role Description

I worked in Resources and Energy group. I had to create presentations for potential clients following the guidlines the seniour team members gave me. I had to research some information on particular topics. I had to prepare my own presentation on a particular company and propose an M&A transaction and to present it to the panel. This was my final project.

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

I liked my time at HSBC very much. Everyone was very supportive. I was given a lot of different tasks involving different aspects of the businees. We had a lot of networking events among the fellow interns and full-time staff. These helped to get a better understanding ob the businees and culture at HSBC.
