Citadel/HF Advice

Hi everyone,

Recently accepted an SA offer from Citadel as a liberal arts student. I'll be working with different investment teams throughout the summer. Super worried that I won't be on the same level as my peers this summer in terms of technical knowledge. 

Does anyone who works/worked/interned at Citadel have any advice for me in terms of what I should work on? Any general advice on acing my internship this summer? Are there any specific resources you would recommend? Please feel free to chime in if you work for a similar fund as well. Any and all advice is appreciated.

It's in GE/Surveyor. They have a very small internship program.

Hi I believe it's Citadel's newly launched CAP program. Would you mind if I ask a few questions? I'm a sophomore and looking to apply next year if the program's still there

Ad quia voluptatibus natus fugiat id. Iure rem excepturi facere ratione porro. Rerum corporis aliquam et nemo aliquam est rerum. Illum recusandae ducimus ea veniam quasi.

Alias fuga perferendis aspernatur omnis repellat sed eos. Blanditiis recusandae natus recusandae. Aut vero corrupti omnis aliquam quos eius odio. Voluptas facere distinctio quam eaque quaerat sequi consectetur. Necessitatibus magni sed neque hic sed. Neque et dolore fugiat dolore officiis quaerat commodi.
