How does recruiting plan/scheme look for MSc students?

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys,

    I am not really familiar with how recruiting works for master students so:
    • What kind of programs/positions am I allowed to apply for?
    • when do I start applying?
    • What programs are meant for undergraduates and which ones are meant for postgraduates?
    • I have a turkish sounding name, will this prove a liability when applying for jobs?
    • Can I get an idea of what firms or institutions take in economics post-graduates?
    I understand that networking is the key to success but does it apply for graduate students?

    A little about myself:
    • I am an EU international student with a bachelor in finance and one year worth of computer science courses and no work experience.
    • I will be pursuing an MSc at Durham University, which is a 1 year program, so basically I am going to have to hit the ground running.
    My main purpose is to not go back to the country where I came from and generally avoid eastern & central Europe.

    Other than signing-up to relevant clubs/societies and networking what can I do to secure a job or an internship after graduation?

    I am interested in:
    • Investment Banking
    • Equity Research
    • Economic Research & Forecasting.
    Thank you for your time.
