Our People

Cindy Shin - Financial Products
University of Hong Kong, Bachelor of Business Administration (2016)

I started off as a Summer Intern in 2015 and officially joined the Analytics Team upon graduation in April 2016. What I loved most about this opportunity is the 8-week training program. The structured and comprehensive training program was designed to help us develop cross asset (Equity, Fixed Income, Foreign Exchange and Commodities) and product knowledge so that we are equipped and well prepared to interact with our clients. This experience opens doors to many other exciting career opportunities within Bloomberg!
