I graduated from the University of Birmingham in MSc Economics, and i'm struggling to find an interviewer that will employ me with my lack of experience and knowledge of the industries.

Can anyone guide me with any steps I can take? All the internships seem to be for students only. I've heard work shadowing can be an option.

When did you graduate?
What jobs are you applying for?
Have you spoken to your university's career service?

I only graduated about a month ago,

I'm looking to go into business analyst roles, finance roles, or a graduate scheme.

I haven't directly spoken to my careers service but I have applied for a few of their internships on their job website.

So get applying. Not sure what more you'd like us to say?

You're probably a bit behind the curve with no work experience, but that shouldn't be a dealbreaker.
