I am an acomplished accounting and finance student who has achieved an upper 2:1 from Brunel University, with 320 UCAS points, although i have no relevant banking experience i been working in accounts for some 3 years and have managerial experience for more than four.
I am looking for a job as a Futures or Derivative trader however obviously dont have the experience. Apart from applying to intership and grad schemes for 2009, vacancies at citi jobs, efinan careers etc, and enlisting with recruiters which im not having much luck with can any one else offer some advice during such a volitile time for graduates trying to break into this sector.
Although i have sheduled interviews, I have had limited responses from my applications.
I am also studing for my IMC and have secured a place at Reading University for MSc International Securities, Investment and Banking.
I look forward to your valued comments.
