I am currently in my first at the University of Exeter studying Accounting and Finance. Last summer I had the fortunate opportunity of spending a few days in the Securities and trading division of an Investment Bank in London. I shadowed and tried to understand what the various people did. I observed that to deliver what the customer needs requires a diverse team of salespeople, traders, and administrators, all communicating well with each other. I believe that I would fit in well into any such a team. I am a good communicator, with good social and analytical skills and am a strong team player. This summer I have already had a 2 week internship at a pay-day loans company and worked in their marketing, underwriting, and management sectors. As a South African raised in Switzerland and having attended a Hebrew school, an International School in Switzerland and also an American School in London, I have learned to overcome cultural barriers in order to effectively communicate my ideas and to be accepted. I am also a keen sportsman, having been in the first rugby team for three years. This taught me the importance of working together in order to achieve a common goal. If given the opportunity at I would love to be able to use my learning from my degree and apply it to real world scenarios. I am a dedicated worker and will go to great lengths to achieve any tasks given to me. I believe I would be a valuable asset.
