TARGETjobs Weekly Careers Round-up

Hello everyone! 

Can you believe that this is the last roundup post for November! This year has flown by. 

For this careers roundup I have a variety of things to share with you. Let me start with an update on the Midlands postgraduate fair that took place at the ICC, Birmingham on the 26 November. Firstly, thank you to all those that attended, it was great to see you all.

Here are some pictures from the day that I thought would be nice to share with you all.

Now, onto our latest career advice

If you're looking for a graduate job, check out our upcoming graduate job deadlines. Don't miss out, we have stacks of vacancies and application deadlines coming up next week.

Internships are a crucial stepping-stone to graduate schemes. Get application tips, find out about industrial placements and browse opportunities within our article 'Internships with big graduate recruiters'. 

Investment Banking
At the launch of TARGETjobs Events’ Women in Investment Banking fair, five senior female investment bankers (with more than 70 years’ experience of the industry between them) gave the 50 university students in attendance valuable advice about how they can break into and succeed in the industry.
So that budding bankers who weren’t at event don’t miss out on the pearls of wisdom, TARGETjobs Finance would like to share with you the tips from women at the top on how to succeed in investment banking.

Financial services and insurance 
A massive 178 graduate and internship vacancies across the financial services and insurance sector are currently being advertised on TARGETjobs. If you intend to apply for any, spend a few minutes reading our application form advice before you begin yours – to stand a better chance of making it through this stage of the recruitment process. 

Stay one step ahead of the deadlines and essential information you need to kick start your law career. Updated every Thursday, our weekly law update for graduates helps you with your commercial awareness and makes sure you’ve got some talking points when you come face to face with recruiters. This week it’s the role of the grand jury in Ferguson, the public interest defence for whistle-blowers and the Law Society’s apology over sharia wills.

This week the TARGETjobs Inside Buzz team are very excited to announce the 2015 law rankings! We reveal the top 25 law firms as voted for by graduates working in the legal profession. Check out the rankings here.

We also let you know how those same 1,396 trainee solicitors rated their own law firms in terms of culture, training, hours, office - and more categories besides. Be sure to study the rankings as part of your research before applying for training contracts or vacation schemes. 


Find out more about what you can do with your masters – from taking research to the next level to making the most of your advanced qualifications when applying for jobs. 

We are hiring!!

GTI Media are currently recruiting for a Junior Developer, if you think your skills and qualifications match our profile then why not apply today!

That's all from me this week. 
Good luck with your applications.
