I absolutely loved my time as an intern at Barclays. I had the liberty of pinging almost anyone (Let’s not include the ‘C’ suite as I haven’t tried that) and set up a 15-20 Minutes call with them to know more about the business.
If Barclays is still following the old program practices then this will be a part of your internship milestones where you’ll have to schedule 3-4 meetings with Director/Managing Directors to know more about their respective verticals and document these meetings.

Most of the support you receive comes from the administrative supervisor in NYC and your direct supervisor at your location. If you are using the position as a stepping stone, be honest. Tell your boss what interests you and where you hope to go within the company. Barclays has numerous online training modules you can do, and if you are in NYC, there are many in-house sessions you can attend to learn more about other areas of the organization. May people start in the states and transfer to a higher position abroad.
