Yeah I interned at Barclays before and AVP was something like ~3 years into the role. Not sure the hierarchy in Corp Strat but check out LinkedIn - VP seems more appropriate

I was given a project that i’ve never done before, sad to say I didn’t perform well on it as i’d like but I came out know alot more about it. What the best way to recover from it? I think if I were to be given it again I would perform much better now that I have a better understanding of the work flow, I have a knack for process improvement so I think I can create something that will help reduce errors and give us some much needed time. Should I create a prototype and show it to my boss?
