On Monday, July 20th, the female technology intern class of 2015 was given the opportunity of meeting Ide Hughes – CIO of Wealth Management. Her vast career has spanned multiple global financial companies, earning her valuable insight into the industry and leading her to join Barclays in 2012. Ide talked through the highlights of her education and career journey and facilitated a Q&A session.
The session provided the interns an insight into the skills needed to succeed in the technology area. They identified an aptitude for problem solving as number one.
One key tip identified was “be flexible in yourself…be confident in your abilities. The ladies were very inspired by these words and collectively agreed that they would adopt this as their mantra throughout their internship.
