Graduation date: 2015
What type of careers guidance did you come in for?
I have attended numerous activities organised by the Careers Service, from employer events to mock interviews.
Do you think the careers guidance or mock interview helped you with your application / interview?
The mock interviews were very helpful in preparing me for the final interviews at Barclays. The fact that I booked two interviews with different consultants helped me to approach interview questions better. The versatile approach of both the interviewers helped me get over my nervousness on the final interview day. Eventually, I have secured a summer internship offer with Barclays Investment Banking division.
What advice do you have for other students?
The career consultants' advice was very valuable and I would recommend all students to use the Career Service to prepare for interviews.
