Antar Al-Qawwee describes in vivid detail his first days on the job at his summer internship in Sales and Trading and reflects on the lessons he learned through careful observation. Among the lessons he identifies are (1) Speak up early and often; (2) Be flexible and adjust your style; (3) Fate favors the prepared; and (4) Be yourself. As important as these explicit lessons are, equally important are the skills of presence of mind, mindful self-awareness, and sensitive reading of people and situations that he demonstrates.
