    i saw this message from lawgrad:
    the pleasure of being headhunted and tempted with very generous signing-on bonuses (£35000 starting pay, £4000 sign-on bonus, £2000 for clothes, 6-month secondment to New York with apartment in Manhattan, etc) by various top international employers. :-)

    is this exclusive to law/eco grads
    im planning to do MEng Engineering and Business Finance at ucl (with the biz fin and LSE)
    if i get a first (fingers crossed) and do a reasonable amount of extra cir stuff have i got a chance of being headhunted by firms like goldman sachs, morgan stanley etc
    because someone said engineering grads dont get that
    will this degree be ok cos it has the finance modules from LSE plus with the project work it will show teamwork and time mangement

    If your department has very close ties with the relevant employers, being headhunted is a possibility if you are one of the departments highflyers (i.e. finish in the top 5 or win a project prize or something).
