Career Services

hi everyone, 

every time I (and other ambassadors) meet an admit or prospective student I get asked about career services and how the class is doing regarding jobs. personally I've found them to be very good and helpful. it does depend on what you want, but for a wide variety of industries they are very useful. I was always very interested in industry (specifically FMCG) and found that our career services team were great at giving me advice for my applications and during the interview process. the fairs they organised were great and I got a couple of interviews out of them. 

in the class we have done pretty well this year in getting jobs. I don't have the full figures (and there are a lot of different figures being put about at the moment!) but I do know that significant numbers of people have jobs in top consulting, banking and industry firms. what is also becoming clear is that after a successful first year many firms are planning to look even closer at the MiM in the next recruiting round. so overall it looks as though the program has done well in its first year from a recruitment point of view despite the difficult economic environment. 

overall I would say I am satisfied with the career services support we have received. if you work with them and particularly take advantage of their help for the application and interview processes you can get a lot of value from LBS career services.
