What inspired you to apply to Bank of America?

I studied computer engineering in Ghana, where I’m from, because I wanted the opportunity to work in any industry as opposed to one particular field. When I discovered Bank of America has a massive technology division I applied for an internship as a personal challenge and was accepted!

 

Is it what you expected from a bank?

I was surprised by how much influence I can have. From day one, leadership has shown me how important my opinions are – even as an intern. Now I’m on the Junior Talent Working Group in Chester, giving feedback on who the next generation of interns might be. To be honest, I expected influence was going to flow top-down but it doesn’t. I’m encouraged to contribute all the time.

 

What does your role entail?

I work on the Reporting and Data Analytics team for Technology Infrastructure Services. We provide insights that help senior leaders to make data-driven business improvements. For example, when there’s a major incident that disrupts service, my team gathers information on what the impact was, how it was resolved, what the root cause was and how we’re working to prevent it from re-occurring.
