Starting an internship position in Alternative Credit (CMBS, ABS, CLOs) at a major Credit Fund

Hi,

I'll be starting a junior summer internship position at a Credit Fund in its Alternative Credit team. I'm really excited and I want to do my best in the position to make sure I secure a return offer and build my career and reputation. Does anyone have any primers or advice for how I can do my best in portfolio management/structured finance? I would be working with ABS, CMBS, ABS, and other parts of alternative credit.

Can I ask how you found an internship for these, assuming it is one of the major players? I have been really interested in the CLO space

How was the experience? Was it very quantitative mathematically/statistically? I'm looking to break in but I've seen a few postings ask for familiarity with R, Python, Intex and I lack them all lol (business undergrad)
