8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

A half-day job shadowing at Fixed Income, Equity Research and Solutions was very helpful to see how people there work on a daily basis.

9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

Very much so, and it was through such a way that we could feel the culture and value at Fidelity ourselves, instead of being told that what the values at Fidelity were supposed to be. People we meet at Fidelity are interesting, everyone of them. They are passionate about what they do, not at all like some of their counterparts at investment banking industry who endure the long working hours instead of enjoying them.

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

It wasn't just an insight program into Fidelity, but also an insight program into the entire investment management industry. Highly valuable in helping me to understand this industry.
