When I started the MSc Risk Management & Financial Engineering programme at Imperial, I wanted to have a career in the finance industry, but I wasn’t sure which path was the right one for me. I attended many networking events and company visits organised by the Careers team at Imperial and this really helped me in choosing my future path.

Almost from day one at Imperial, I have received professional advice from the Career Consultants and expanded my network with practitioners worldwide. Networking seminars, for example, have boosted my confidence to speak English and any other second-language with native-speakers and compelled my passion for working with international people. With the help of the Careers service, I have secured a position as a Wealth Management Analyst at the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China.
