I can’t believe it is already February! Time is flying by and the intensity of this term has been just as high as it was in the fall. This semester, the MiMs have been delving into Finance, Marketing and the Global Macroeconomy, and all these courses have been exciting and insightful. Our Macroeconomics professor is none other than Hélène Rey (a simple Google search will reveal what an impressive pedigree she has). Aside from academics, the search for jobs and the application process has heated up, and these next couple months will be when many firms are looking to hire for July and September intakes as well as summer internships.

The MiM 2013 Employment Report was released recently and it showed 96% of students had received an employment offer within 3 months of graduation. The Career Services team has been ever helpful in their guidance as I have altered my career goals and come up with a new plan for my employment search. It took me a bit of time to figure out what specifically I would like to do within business, but I now have my heart set on Marketing and I am enjoying getting more exposure to and receiving insights from people doing what I can imagine myself doing post-LBS.

Last week I had the opportunity to meet a number of representatives from prestigious companies at the Marketing Club’s Meet the Marketers Event. This week is Business Immersion Week, one of the highlights of the year, where MiMs will actively engage in projects and casework with a number of companies from across different sectors. I am visiting a marketing agency and a creative growth consultancy, so by the end of the week I will have a greater understanding of the day-to-day processes of these types of companies and the challenges they face.

Until next time!
