What I enjoyed most about my internship was the opportunity to learn from such caring mentors - all of the traders I have had the pleasure of interacting with are always very insightful and very willing to teach. I have really enjoyed absorbing all the information I can get in contact with.

What does the future hold?

I would return to EDF Trading because of the great work environment. I have had the pleasure of working with very talented and approachable people from whom I have learned a lot in a short span of time. From an IT perspective, things change at a fast pace and there are always new projects to develop and new technologies to implement. The best part is that interns and graduates are encouraged to get involved and play a major role in these changes.
