Two visits were scheduled for the day – Circle and Barclays. In the former I got to learn about a Fin Tech company, which was quite different from most well-known banks. The atmosphere there was very pleasant and friendly.
Since it can sometimes be hard to follow the group, at 4pm I decided to make my own way to Canary Wharf for the visit to Barclays Bank. It was striking how well banks do indeed prepare themselves extensively for our visit. All the employees were very open and ready to share their experiences with us. This really helped me to improve my networking skills during the visit as there were so many chances to talk to different people from diverse backgrounds.
