I look forward to building a career in the investment and capital markets space which begins with an internship that I've secured at an investment management firm in London. The Careers team have been really helpful with providing guidance around bringing my CV and cover letters up to standard by giving feedback on content and structure. They have also helped with providing compulsory training, networking and career events where we have had professionals speak to us about opportunities at their firms.
