Support finding work experience, internships or a graduate job
Providing feedback on your CV, cover letter or application form
Interview skills – including mock interviews
Choosing your career path
Additional career development opportunities include employer and alumni events, careers fairs, skills workshops, mock assessment centres and practice psychometric tests, along with a wide range of digital and hard-copy careers resources. The Careers Team organise a series of employer and alumni events called Focus on Finance in the autumn term. These sessions give you insights in the world of finance and an opportunity to develop their network.
