    just a student.
    I'd choose "at" because the bank is a place.
    I don't know if it's going to fit the context but I'd really say "If you are working for ...".
    I also would say "I'm working in a project" because in this case it's an activity.
    just a student.

    I think the right way is "working on a project".
