Advice for those wishing yo go into finance

The Graduate

Hi Everybody,

I was looking for a job for a long time, but thankfully recently managed to secure a number of offers. I am at the moment vacillating between the graduate program at the London Stock Exchange and/ or persuing the MF Global graduate scheme. Similalrly, I had Bloomberg and the CME Group to choose from. Which, notwithstanding the completely different job portfolios, would you think would serve me best in a career; especially since I know I want to stay in finance just not in which field.

Many thanks.


Hello whichjob,

I wouldn’t pursue Bloomberg if you want a career in finance as that is more efx sales i.e you would be selling the bloomberg platform. The LSE is clearly a good move and I am too in the process of MF Global. Have you been offered a position by MF?




Thanks for that. Nope, but am in the process.


Have you been called for the AC?
