WILLEMSTAD - Jonathan Blasse, a sophomore at the College of the Dutch Caribbean, and Juraimy Pastor, a junior at University of the Dutch Caribbean, showed special interest in developing a career in Wealth Management during a one day “job shadowing” opportunity at CIBC FirstCaribbean recently.
The “job shadowing” was one of the bank’s key activities across its 16-member regional footprint to mark International Men’s Day observed around the world on November 19, 2019.
The job shadowing was intended to show the students that there is a whole lot more to banking than just the familiar retail functions. Both Blasse as Pastor were engaged and “fully participated and had a good input” during meetings.
What especially interesting to both students was the specialized services provided by the Wealth Management professionals at the bank. Wealth Management combines both financial planning and specialized financial services. The goal of wealth management is to sustain and grow long-term wealth.
Both students said that the day shadowing CIBC FirstCaribbean Senior executives provided them with a whole new perspective on possibilities within banking and awakened their ambition to one day also take the seat as a senior bank executive.
