Thank you very much to the three speakers who inspired us with their story of how they progressed in their professional career in The City. Rachel told us her career path to becoming a successful IT Project Manager, Chisom and Akshara both graduated from Oxford and progressed to Corporate Banking and Consulting respectively in The City.
Lots of tips, advice and very friendly and honest conversation. Keep on developing your excel spreadsheets and power point skills and do think about doing a project management qualification. It kind of seemed it easy to be successful. But the common advice is: work hard, keep on networking and meeting people, go to recruitment events and remember: when one door closes, another one opens. We all learnt a lot, felt inspired and motivated to study hard and make the most of our time at university.
