Colston Kane completed the Amplify Trading Summer Internship Programme in September 2019, see what he had to say about his journey.
Why did you choose to do Amplify Trading’s Summer Course?
I felt there was a fundamental disconnect between what I was learning and real-life application. Amplify Trading bridged that gap.
What is the biggest highlight of the course for you?
The morning quizzes. A brilliant way to cement new knowledge, compete with your friends and get your head in the game.
What did you learn on the course and how did it help you land your role at Moneycorp?
The course taught me strong interpersonal skills which gave me the confidence to demonstrate how I can add value to the business.
How has the course met/exceeded your expectations?
The course exceeded my expectation. It gave me an exceptional understanding of real-life trading concepts and improved my soft-skills at the same time.
How likely are you to recommend the course to a friend?
Is there anything you didn’t expect to either be taught/gain on the programme?
I didn’t expect to be exposed to such a broad range of functions in finance.
How has Amplify Trading helped in your career development?
It’s helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses. I’ve formulated a more complete picture of what I want to do and how to go about it.
Did you find you had more clarity on what role in finance you wanted to pursue, after completing the internship?
