Caixa Economica Federal. I left Exeter in September 23. After 2 months looking for an adequate position, I was promoted at the Investor Relations department at Caixa Economica Federal. It’s been a great experience, because I can employ concepts which I learned at the university, and also learn new concepts from a practical point of view.
