Why I chose Raiffeisen
My first acquaintance with the Bank was when I passed practice from university. It was then that I decided for myself that this was “THE ONE” first job I wanted to get! So in summer I went to the second set of the internship program for students without hesitation. Then I saw all the work from inside: all the difficulties and advantages of different units. As a result, I received a job offer.
The team that changed everything
One of the basic principles of Raiffeisen Bank Aval: "We work together and for each other". It is confirmed in practice daily!
I think a good team atmosphere is the key to a productive team work. When I first came to my workplace, I felt support, help and understanding.
No one can know everything, so we are all learning and developing together! And of course, no one canceled a good sense of humor, because any situation is worth looking at from a positive point of view.
My advice to newcomers
Entering the Lviv Educational and Research Institute of Banking at the Finance and Credit Faculty, I did not know the value or willingness to associate my life with the banking sphere. It seems to me that many students are not 100% sure whether they will work in the profession. I am convinced that this is why internship programs exist. And it’s great when employers offer them.
Yes, Raiffeisen Bank Aval's internship program is a great chance to gain an understanding of how a bank works. It is also an opportunity to learn new things and, most importantly, it helps to make the right choice for further professional realization.
The main thing is not to be afraid, to be interested and to ask questions.
At our Bank everyone is happy to help and support each other!
Today, I hold the position of Chief Economist, and I have a lot to develop, and once I just came to practice.
