    Hello...!

    My brother-in-law is working in a bank in India (in commodities). He is allowing me to work with him but without any proof that I worked with him.

    here Proof means no signature and no letter to say that I worked with him.

    (I am interested in Stock markets...)

    so what do u say should I spend a week with him going to the bank or leave this opportunity?


    Thank you

    I'd do it...though you may run into a spot of trouble if you get a 'proper' internship with the background check...that is, if you list it along with your work exp.

    If you work for them for a week - Why are they so reluctant to say that you worked for them if it came to a background check? Are they ashamed of you or somthing?

    you could just do it to get to know how a bit of the bank works and plus if you're just sitting at home then yes go for it.

    Yes this is work shadowing. You can easily put it into a CV, or a Personal statement for university etc. Work shadowing is a great asset to have as it shows you are interested and indeed you are wanting to get yourself out there.

    It sounds like a great opportunity, definately take it, if only to increase your knowledge of/interest in IB.

    Nobody is going to ask for written proof of your experiences - before you get the offer, at least. Great thing, do it, put it on yr personal statement / CV / cover letter, and move on.

    Yeah, it's good to include in a cover letter if they ask you to state why you're interested in that particular field. You could say something along the lines of: "My interest in x has been spurred on by a recent workshadowing experience in y division...".
