"I was born in the Netherlands. In Leeuwarden to be specific, a small city in the north of the country. People there still have their own language. It is really tiny and since I am a career oriented city person, I am very happy that I don't live there anymore. I've lived in Amsterdam for the last 4 years now.
I am 22 years old and obtained a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Finance at the University of Amsterdam, during which I went on exchange to Hofstra University, NY for one semester. In July of this year I will have finished my MSc Business Economics.
I will be interning at an investment bank in Beijing, where I will have the title of Financial Analyst Intern. I have taken several courses related to M&A and IPOs, two of the fields that I will be working in during the internship. Also, I have extensive knowledge about financial analysis which will be a major part of my tasks.
I hope to gain experience and be comfortable operating the tasks I have to do in a professional environment.
I've heard that Chinese people are very direct yet honest so I'm looking forward to finding out if it is true or note. I found Gi2C on Linkedin and decided to locate a China internship with their assistance.
In order to be prepared for my first day on the job, I've been reading up on my valuation notes and financial calculator instruction that I might need during the internship.
My faimly was supportive of my move to China but wanted to know whether it was worth the money. We will find out soon if it is or not!
What am I going to miss most about home? I'm really cheesy, haha, but I'll miss my girlfriend the most."
Awww, that's sweet. Thanks John! And good luck with your internship.
