What Our Alumni Say About Remote Finance Internships
“Before beginning my Virtual Internship, I was keen to truly make the most out of this experience and boost my career prospects, and I certainly did this. With the help from my lovely supervisor, Zlata, I gained a multitude of new skills and knowledge and met and networked with lots of new people. If anything, the Virtual Internship exceeded my expectations as I didn’t know I’d be able to gain this much experience and insight into the finance sector working remotely!”
“My favorite memory from my virtual internship was being able to sit in on Zoom calls and meetings that my company was having with other venture capital firms & investment banks. Being on the inside and gaining knowledge into how these partnerships work was very unique and a special opportunity!”
“Virtual Internships helped me to get exposed to working independently to gain international work experience. Even though it was challenging it has been an exceptional opportunity I ever came across because it has really opened my eyes in different areas, from personal development to overall professional development. With the skills learned I will be able to confidently face my future work with optimism.”
“I gained experience in adapting the data analysis skills I built up in my Biochemistry degree to financial data and built up valuable transferable skills such as communication skills and the ability to work independently when working virtually.
