I thoroughly enjoyed almost every aspect of my internship but what I liked the most was the willingness of everyone I encountered to teach me something, everyone I spoke to was very passionate about what they do. My role included inputting financial information, analyzing quality of lending requests, updating technical information.
I least enjoyed the work from home aspect, however considering the circumstances BMO was more than accommodating of our needs and made the transition as smooth as possible for us.
My direct manager, training manager and mentor provided more support than I could possibly expect during my work term. I felt comfortable asking any questions that came up and through training, I felt prepared to fulfill all the expectations of my role.
Although we were in a work from home situation I was frequently invited to workshops and events that gave me the opportunity to interact with colleagues socially.
Put yourself out there and apply to any role that interests you. Make an effort to get to know the person interviewing you and the expectations of the role. Be open minded and willing to work hard.
