Why Equity Research is a great place to start your career
As told by Matt, a former intern and current Assistant Vice President in Equity Research at Barclays.
We’re working with clients across the world. We have many different business areas. And we’re evolving all the time – which means new opportunities are regularly opening up. For all of these reasons, we’re a remarkably diverse organization offering a huge array of career choices.
With so many options, picking which job will be a good fit for you isn’t always easy. That’s why it makes sense to investigate what others love about the work they do here. What gives them the biggest buzz? What do they find satisfying about their day-to-day responsibilities? And would you get as much out of the work as they do?
