Hope you are well! Thanks to all of you who partook in our recent user survey; we’re delighted with the response! You can take a look at our findings here.
At this time of year, students should start thinking about securing some work experience or an internship before the revision rush begins. It’s certainly where our attention has shifted to, as you’ll see on our website. Elsewhere, The Boston Consulting Group have provided us with some interview and case study tips. These articles are sure to prove invaluable to aspiring consultants, who might also want to take a look at our PwC company profile. The ‘Big Four’ professional services company is taking applications for their summer internship programmes until the end of the month.
We’ve posted new internship profiles from graduates at Goldman Sachs and RBS. Both of our interns were able to secure employment with their respective institutions, citing the completion of their internships as instrumental in their successes. We believe these accounts are relatable, informative and inspiring, helping would-be finance workers to adjust their expectations in a positive way. A new article on the legal confusion surrounding unpaid internships lets students know the rights they have whilst working as an intern.
