As an FLDP intern, I was exposed to numerous aspects of the business. Some departments I worked with were treasury, tax, global analytics, FPNA, and internal audit. Through these experiences, I got a broad view of how the company functions and was able to get a better idea of what I enjoy, am good at, or maybe am not interested in. I was able to sit down with high level management and ask for advice on my career and hear from them about their careers.
