I am a consultant specialising within Operations, Middle Office and Finance, covering the Investment Banking, Retail Banking, Insurance and Vendor/Fintech industries.
Articulate who you are and what you want. Being clear on this before the interview - and doing adequate preparation - allows you to deal with the majority of questions in the interview. I learnt this myself from personal experiences. Seek out a recruiter that will support you properly throughout your job search experience; someone who can give you accurate information about the open roles, help you prepare properly for your interview and provide you with thorough and honest feedback.
I studied marketing in Reno, Nevada. After moving back from the US, I worked as a Sales Engineer within the construction industry in Tokyo for 13 months.
Please reach out to me if you would like advice and I am open to having a conversation with any potential job-seeker. There are a lot more opportunities for you out there than you think.
