“Rotating across all departments at OpusAM not only allowed me to attain extensive on-the-job training but it also presented me with the opportunity to network across departments. I was able to gain insight on how the company worked as a whole with the proper guidance from my fellow colleagues and this ended up being very valuable for me in my current role as an Analyst.

My advice to future Management Associates is to take an interest in everything as we truly value the curious ones here at OpusAM. Along the way, you will discover what your strengths and weaknesses are. Hone your strengths and fine tune your weaknesses and your efforts will not go unnoticed. Good luck!”

It was everything that I expected it to be and in some parts even exceeded my expectations! Moreover, I am grateful to be a part of the family. Everyone here is friendly, helpful, and most importantly, professional.

Another special thing about the company is the learning culture here. It doesn’t matter which department you are in, you can always have the opportunity to learn from others. As such, I am immensely thankful for this opportunity which I think is essential for future career progression.”
