    Hello people studying business / econ / finance.. What kind of summer jobs have you been able to land? What about graduate employment, I'd be happy to hear any experiences you might have of those schemes. I'm just starting my university studies of international business, finance and economics.. Aiming towards working in an investment bank or financial news crew. Thanks for anyone's experiences / comments!

    I would have thought that your degree would have excellent employment prospects. I'm still on A-Levels but I would have thought you could apply for internships at IBs for good experience during the summers, which in turn could help land you a job on graduation.
    Out of curiousity, are you going to Manchester for IBFE?

    Like I said still in the middle of A-levels so will be starting the whole application process soon, like the look of Manchester but still not sure if I should apply for IBFE or straight economics.
