Team Work
‘It’s not just what you’ve done, it’s being aware that you’ve developed as a result and then spelling this out to recruiters.’
Gemma Adams, vice-president of recruitment for Mitsubishi UFJ Securities International (MUSI), asks: ‘Are you virtual trading? Do you have your own portfolio? Are you a member of a society where you’ve done something innovative? Give us an example – don’t just give us the standard, “I’m really keen on the markets”, because anyone can say that. We really need to see a bit of evidence.’
