Business Insight

3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?

It was very interesting but slightly daunting at first. As a history student, I did not have a very detailed understanding of the work of the financial services industry, but I felt that I was able to get up to speed quite quickly. I was able to form a solid understanding of the business through the networking sessions put on throughout the week.
