Graduate

Millie Montague

Securities Analyst, Goldman Sachs

Different to many, I transferred from Mathematics and Finance at City University to study at The London Institute of Banking & Finance, and I am very pleased with my decision. It provided me with all the support I needed during the application season; I attended multiple CV and cover letter workshops with industry professionals, and was encouraged to gain work experience by being offered the Advanced Work Based Learning module.
 
I began reading the Financial Times, to which the university provide a subscription, and I even started trading myself. This is down to the influence of the students I am surrounded with here – the difference in ambition and industry knowledge is striking.
 
I have found networking a powerful tool, and having somebody to mention in your cover letter, as well as gain advice from when applying, is so beneficial. The events that they run are a great way to meet people working in the industry, and networking is heavily encouraged. Overall, my degree has been a leap for me and helped me in obtaining my first choice position.
