Following on from my last post, “Can someone please make my mind up for me please?,” where I was having what can only be described as a career-related emotional breakdown, I am pleased to report fantastic news. I have secured two, yes that’s right not only one, but two vacation schemes in London in easter and summer.
Don’t ask me how I did it, because I can’t tell you. Maybe the firms can just sense I’m a little bit older and wiser. Maybe I am a little bit more commercially aware. Or maybe I just now know all the tricks of the trade having had about eight final round interviews (actually speak in the negotiation exercises, put in sufficient detail in test answers, don’t make stupid mistakes in your interview about the firm) etc. etc. But I definitely feel like I’m getting somewhere having beaten off around 800 people each time to get in this position. Definitely, and it has really given me the confidence to think I could be successful this year. I’ll update in a few weeks with an update of my time in London in April (fingers crossed!)
Hopefully I’ll come back with news that in the future, I will look like her!
