Yes because you work hard for a year or two and can decide what you want to do after that. I had plenty of options after my first year and ultimately chose what I found most rewarding to myself. It all depends on what you think you might want to do afterwards, working at Barclays didn’t close any doors for me.
Barclays is an ideal place to kickstart a career in this field. Not only will your manager give you real work that makes a tangible difference at the company but you will also have ample opportunities to network across the department and across the firm. My entire HR intern class from last summer is returning to Barclays in some capacity for the Graduate program through which we will have the opportunity to work full-time in 4 different areas of HR for 6 months each before staying in one permanently. The training we receive is unparalleled in any other job, such that we are better prepared to advance our careers more quickly than other similar analysts.
