Course: Business Management BA(Hons)
Internship: M3 Capital Partners
I receive emails with jobs relevant to me. This job was sent to me directly and I was encouraged to apply. I received help through the placements office with my application as well as my interview technique, which also provided me with the confidence to go into my actual interview.
At the moment I am doing an industrial placement at M3 Capital Partners as an account assistant.
I chose my degree because I knew I always wanted to study something business-related, but never really explored all of the options. I wanted to keep my experience broad and thought this course would allow me to look at lots of different specialisms.
This course has clarified that I really love finance and, after doing a mentoring scheme at BlackRock, this really has cemented the direction I want to follow.
The advice I would give is to keep applying and not to give up. Start looking early. I left it late and was panicking! Try to get relevant experience related to your degree and show an interest in your sector! Employers don't just want to hear about your academic achievements – they want to know whether your personality will fit too.
