What is your greatest challenge and success as a Junior Analyst?
The greatest challenge I have faced as a Junior Analyst has been the learning curve of the investment industry. The Junior Analyst Program has exposed me to various securities and markets and, consequently, a substantial amount of information and industry jargon, which takes time to become fluent in and requires focus to keep up to date on.
My greatest success in the Junior Analyst program is that the team uses the tools, dashboards, and analyses I developed to make decisions. It is satisfying to know that while I am learning, I am also creating value for the team.My greatest success in the Junior Analyst program is that the team uses the tools, dashboards, and analyses that I developed for their decision-making.
