[UKPRwire, Wed Oct 01 2008] eFinancialCareers, the UK-based global financial careers website, is pleased to announce that its Careers in Financial Markets – Europe 2008/09 guidebook is now available to students and graduates.
With advice on the application process, internships and graduate programmes, the comprehensive guide aims to steer students and graduates in the right direction towards establishing a career in the financial markets, asset management or investment banking. The 96 page book explores 15 different banking sectors and contains valuable facts, figures and information gathered from professionals working in each area. Within each of these sections, it highlights the types of opportunities available in the sectors to students and graduates. In addition, the guide contains an extensive employer profile section that includes application deadlines, details about which of the company’s divisions offer vacancies and the number of graduate hires in the previous year for their graduate and internship programmes.
This year’s Careers in Financial Markets covers graduate-level career opportunities not only in the UK, but across Europe, enabling readers to see at a glance which countries excel in which sectors.
John Benson, founder and CEO of eFinancialCareers.com, said:
“Banks are telling eFinancialCareers that they anticipate maintaining graduate recruitment programmes although they may scale back somewhat on numbers and fill many posts from their intern pool. It is therefore key for students to get into an internship programme whilst at university to improve their chances of landing a banking position when they graduate. Students who can speak Mandarin, Arabic or Russian are also expected to be in demand as banks increase their focus on emerging markets. Careers in Financial Markets has been specifically designed to guide students through all the options that lie before them and help them find ways to stand out in the application and interview process.”
Careers in Financial Markets – Europe 2008/09 will be available to download on eFinancialCareers.com’s Student Centre (www.efinancialcareers.com/students) from October 2008. The guide is also available from over 300 university and business school careers services across Europe such as the London School of Economics, HEC and St. Gallen.
