During the summer of 2020 I completed a 10-week virtual internship at Mizuho within Investment Banking and Markets, with a focus in Fixed Income Credit Sales. Since completing the internship I have had a chance to reflect on my experience and put together the following five takeaways which I believe would help you to secure a graduate position.
