Career preparation and skills development

We’re offering talented, motivated undergraduate sophomores an opportunity to visit our New York office and explore career opportunities in the following areas:

Please apply to one area, instead of both. This will assist us in the selection process.

During the program, you will take part in business workshops, as well as specialized soft skill training and interview preparation. There will be plenty of opportunities to network with Barclays employees and your fellow program participants.
