As my second week of internship
draws to an end I would like to reflect on the week in the life of an intern.
The internship program definitely exceeded my expectations – I am impressed by
the constant support that I received from HR regarding social, networking and
skills workshop opportunities.
My first week began with an induction which was an invaluable
training for two days where I met fellow interns and high-energy business
trainers from across the bank, which enabled me to build up a very useful
From week 1, I was involved in high
level projects and meetings with my colleagues and senior managers on a daily
basis. I organised and attended a virtual global meeting where colleagues from
across the globe joined us and discussed the progress of the ongoing projects.
My manager, my team and the senior business heads were always available to help
support my learning and answer my queries.
This last statement sums up my
experience so far:
Cool socials, excellent networking
opportunities, work experience in a leading global firm, meeting a lot of
interesting people from all over the world, making new friends, weekend excursions
and football matches with fellow interns made for a successful internship.
Finally, I would absolutely
recommend the internship program to potential interns: Come ready to learn, ask
questions and get ready for an exciting, full of fun, challenging and rewarding
Summer Internship Programme.
