Hey folks,

I was wondering if any of you have experience with/knowledge of due diligence jobs? I noticed a lot of political science postgrads getting into this, but I have always thought that they require advanced knowledge of finance? I looked into some training options, but most of them are really short courses. Is there a degree that would be particularly good for this? Political science seems to be popular degree choice, but I can't get my head around why.

Another thing I noticed is that it seems impossible to get into due diligence without having several years of work experience seems like an impossible task. Even the 20k positions (not a lot given they ask for a completed postgrad degree) ask for at least 2 years experience. Any way to get around this?

Look at the job adverts.
Talk to the agencies or firms.
I thought they were mostly law graduate things?
