/biz/ i really need your help.
i'm a undergraduate sophomore and i just got an email saying that UBS liked my resumé and that they want to schedule an interview.
the position is amazing-- a 2 year long private wealth management internship with a 'competitive salary' and i'm going to be completely honest i would die for this opportunity
however i'm not extraordinarily talented, and i have no experience in the financial sector. for a position like this, there must be some insane competition. pic related is the job requirements. how can i become the PERFECT candidate in addition to slaying the interview?
>Freshmen or Sophomore Undergraduate
>Must be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident
>Coding experience and knowledge in VBA and Excel
I do have coding experience and I have a pretty good understanding of programming logic but I have almost 0 experience using VBA and excel. What kind of stuff do I need to learn how to do? Is there a website that can help with this?
>Strong knowledge on options is preferred
I have a basic understanding but I will definitely read up
>Interest/Experience in valuation and company analysis and strategy development (backtesting, idea generation) is preferred
I have interest in these things, but no experience. Where can I go to learn about company analysis and strategy development? What is 'backtesting' and 'idea generation'?
>Detail-oriented, ability to multitask and work in a fast-paced environment
>Strong quantitative, analytical and communication skills
>Ability to work independently while also being a strong team player
>A track record of exceptional performance in extracurricular and professional activities
>Demonstrated leadership skills
If anyone could please help me I would be forever indebted to you and this board
