    Hi all,

    I'm currently a 2nd year Physics student, looking into future careers. What are the chances of a physics graduate getting say, summer internships and also finding a career in the financial sector with no current experience or knowledge in the field?

    I know finance is a common place for physics graduates to end up, and was wondering if these people would have had prior knowledge about financial markets etc, or when starting at a company they are assumed to have zero knowledge and receive training?



    I work at PWC in Assurance and one of my colleagues graduated in Physics from Cambridge and she interned in Tax and currently works in Tax!

    It is possible!
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
