On 9th February 2016, twelve business students attended a ‘Working in the City’ workshop at Deutsche Bank, London. It focused on introducing students to the business and financial services sectors and the career opportunities available.
In the workshop, the students had an opportunity to gain real insight into the industry by meeting and interviewing city workers. Throughout the interaction students were witnessed and encouraged to demonstrate professional behaviour, as well as gaining an understanding of the importance of taking full advantage of networking opportunities.
Students fedback how they would apply the ideas explored during the day and they included: how to apply techniques in interviews; explore the different educational routes into working in the city; to look for relevant work experience and the importance of networking.
